Zürich. Summer in the City.
The banks of Zürich's rivers and lake are buzzing with activity. With no fewer than 40 swimming facilities - 18 of them outside in the open air, including on the lake and by the river - Zürich has the highest density of public bathing areas in the world.
In recent years, these venues have developed into veritable leisure centers. During the day, guests relax in, on or by the water, while after dusk, the waterside areas are transformed into bars and lounges offering a varied cultural program, with events ranging from readings to theater, sport and poetry slams through to concerts. These venues are regarded as the ultimate meeting place on a mild summer evening.
