Very nice place to take a bath in the Limmat. Sometimes a bit crowded but still easy to find a place if you don't mind sitting close to other people. Extensive facilities for chanching and also a nice Restaurant.

Great place to hang out in the summer with kids or with friends. Drinks and food are a little pricey so I would suggest bringing your own. But all in all would highly recommend

On the Werd island you don't need clothes. You can get in touch with nature, feel the wind and the grass on your skin and swim in either the canal under the power plant (experienced swimmers only!!!) or in the river on the other side...More
