The Seebad offers seasonal swimming in the heart of Lucerne. In summer you can swim until 8 p.m. then watch the sun go down from the restaurant or bar.
Swim in the lake for views of the Pilatus and the KKL Luzern. The heart of the swimming facilities comprises two pools. Simple changing rooms are arranged around the two courtyards. The charm of bygone days hangs in the air.
You can still your hunger with seasonal salads, hunks of meat, summer cake made on the premises and warm paninis. In terms of refreshment, there’s ice cream, coffee, mineral water, chilled beers and Caribbean drinks.
The Seebad closes in cool weather or when rain/storms are forecast.
The Seebad (literally “lake pool”) was built between 1884 and 1885 by the Lucerne architect Heinrich Victor von Segesser. In its history of well over 100 years, the Seebad has been modified several times; its current appearance dates from 2010.
The Seebad is located between the Grand Casino and the Hotel Palace Luzern. It can be reached on foot from the city centre (railway station/Seebrücke bridge) by following the lakeside promenade and heading towards the Swiss Museum of Transport/lido. Alternatively, take bus routes 6, 8 or 24 (“Verkehrshaus/Lido/Würzenbach”) from the station and alight at “Casino-Palace”.
If coming by car, park in the Casino-Palace or National car parks.
