Schwäbis river bathing place Thun

Schwäbis river bathing place Thun

The Schwäbis river bathing place, also known as the ‘Schwäber’, is situated in an idyllic location close to the town centre, offering swimming in a short peaceful stretch of the Aare.
The Schwäbis river bathing complex was built in 1869/70, in a Swiss timber building style typical of the times. It is regarded as an authentic and characteristic example of the Bernese Oberland’s bath house and tourism architecture, and is a listed building.

In 2006 the complex was renovated and modernised. The restaurant and gourmet kitchen were extended, the changing rooms and projecting roof were rebuilt and the facility was made accessible for wheel chairs.
The river bathing complex is open from May to September, and includes a small but classy restaurant offering culinary treats to visitors. The restaurant will remain open to serve guests on request even after the bathing place has closed. Bathing is in the Aare, on a short and tranquil stretch of the river.

As the water of the river is natural and untreated, there is no way of influencing the temperature. The Schwäbis bathing place restaurant is operated by Trattoria Rimini, who spoil their guests with a richly varied choice of fresh dishes. Seating is right by the riverside, giving you the right kind of feeling of being on holiday.

Highlights

  • Learners' pool 70–120 cm depth, kiddie pool
  • Beach: sand, gravel
  • Separate non-swimmer area, separate swimming area
  • Slide, table tennis tables
  • Quiet area
  • Sun loungers: lawn
  • Showers, WC facilities, drinking water
