July in Zurich promises to be eventful! The temperatures are sizzling hot. The sun is out. Unlike the US where most apartments come with Air Conditioning, Zurich does not. So rather than sweat at home, let’s go out and enjoy what Zurich has to offer this month. And trust me, there is enough going on to make everyone happy!
It’s Badi time!
Nothing like jumping in the water to cool off! Zurich sure doesn’t lack in the water department! You can jump in the lake or river by you, or go to one of the many Badis the city has to offer. To see the complete list of pools in Zurich, click here.
For our fervent swimmers, you can also purchase a Sportabo pass which gets you unlimited access to all 24 indoor and outdoor pools in Zurich.

Aufsehen, Summer Festival, June 25 – September 6th
Have you been noticing a change in the landscape of Zurich? Hanging paintings, Live paintings, unusual banners on landmark buildings, or performances?
