This is so popular that it is crowded. It used to be the area of the famous needle park back in the 90's. Hard to believe now that this place was full of junkies at that time. It... read more

This is so popular that it is crowded. It used to be the area of the famous needle park back in the 90's. Hard to believe now that this place was full of junkies at that time. It was a railway station originally which was not in use. Today it has a few bars, beach volley, cycle paths and the... More

Great spot for sunbathing and chilling. Lot's of local's jump of the near by bridge and float towards your original sunbathing spot with minimal effort. Bar is open next to it to for refreshments.

This area is wonderful as it runs al,ong the river. When the season is open you can swim here as it is supervised, there are life guards. There is a strong current so it is not recommended for people who are not reasonable swimmers. Often people will swim against the currect and never move, a way to train. It has... More

very popular in summertime, this river bath is crowded with younger folks. for some years, especially the German hippsters dominated, so that locals started calling it the German Beach. Best time to visit: for a very eary morning or a late night swim in summer.

Switzerland and 35C do not go hand in hand, so it is nice to have the option to swim in the Letten. There is a bathing area with lockers and chairs and also different food take aways with tables and chairs. You can go for a swim and then enjoy a quite bite. Lifeguard is on duty in select areas.

Hands down this is my favorite place to be on a hot summer day in the city! Jumping off the bridge at the Marriott and floating down to Oberer Letten is a great activity - refreshing and fun. Of course, this place gets super crowded on any day with sun :D but just claim your spot and enjoy people watching... More

Flussbad Obere Letten is another busy spot on the Limmat for swimming and sun bathing. This deck has a cement floor and has changing rooms, lockers, restrooms, a connected bar/café, so it has facilities compared to just across the Limmat. This is also the exit location for the popular summer Limmatschwimm. This section seems to be for the more mature... More
