Oberer Letten is definitely a place to "see and be seen". It's packed with locals lounging around on sunny days. This is also a great spot to see "alternative" Zurich - graffiti artists spray while others play music, sunbathe or swim. There are public toilets, a variety of bars/gills and it's totally free to hang around there. If you're living... More

In my opinion the attractiveness of this place depends a bit on what you want to do. However it is definitely a cool place to hang out with friends in the summer; there are volleyball courts, bars, places you can lie down to sunbath and of course there's the river. I always like to walk all the way up to... More

When summer gets really hot in Zurich (aropund 10 days a year), the Limmat is the wright place to cool down. A trendy Bar serves drinks and snacks - here meets young Zurich for a relaxing afterwork drink and swim.

It is a lot of fun to drift in the very clean (but mostly chilly) river. Usually it is quite crowded on a sunny day but that adds to the ambiance.

This river-fed swimming area (open for swimming only in summer, June-September) is one of the most trendy places in Zurich. Accordingly, it's often overcrowded, especially on weekends if the weather is fine. If possible, come here on a weekday of be early enough to catch one of the last places to sit down.

For someone who grew up at the beach, I find Letten a complete joke. There are far better places to go swimming in Zürich. Go to Greifensee or to the lake at Rapperswil, far far better. Letten is like a canal bordered by grey concrete walls on both sides and water flowing through it. Why in the world would locals... More

The Oberer Letten is a free public swimming place along a river canal. It's provides changing rooms, showers, and toilets and has on both sides of the river a little snackbar. On one side, there are two beach volleyball fields, too. On warm days, it is usually very crowded and a place to see and be seen. But beware -... More
