ZÜRICH | The Limmat is a river that runs through Zurich, from the heart of the old city where it starts, at Lake Zurich, to the north of the city and beyond. The river is clean enough to swim in, and when the weather is good locals head to various parts of the river to enjoy a swim. Swimming is restricted to certain sections of the river and baths, however once a year, in August, Limmat Swim lets people swim from the Frauenbadi in Stadthausquai along the length of the river to the Badi in Oberer Letten.

For regular river swimming, one of our favourite spots on the Limmat is Unterer Letten, in Zurich’s Unterstrass neighbourhood. There’s over 100 metres of dedicated swimming space, a wooden pier above the river with deck chairs, and a kiosk selling coffee, alcoholic drinks, snacks and more substantial food.

Once you’re done swimming, take short stroll along the river to Jugendkulturhaus Dynamo, located just behind Zurich HB. It’s a contemporary arts centre with live music & theatre performances, plus workshops, classes & dining options. It’s a fantastic place to get involved with what’s on offer, or just relax on the banks of the Limmat.

And if none of that appeals? Just go for a stroll along the river. It’s a beautiful, relaxing experience.
