1 Best Sight in Kreis 8, Zürich

Seebad Utoquai

Kreis 8 Fodor's choice

This historic 19th-century wooden badi (lido) on Lake Zurich is arguably the city’s most popular summer spot. Perfectly placed on the sun-kissed Goldküste (Gold Coast), it’s a charming and inclusive spot bursting with local character, where swimmers glide alongside SUP boarders and swans. The bathhouse itself dates back to 1890 and is today divided into three sections: men-only (especially popular with gay men), women-only, and a mixed section popular with couples and families. It’s also equipped with a diving board, hot showers, and a café and bar where you can start your morning with a hot coffee and cold lake plunge followed by a bowl of birchermuesli. Or wait for the midday crowds to disperse around 5 pm and sip a glass of rosé during sunset.
