Historic bathing in the heart of Lucerne City.

The Seebad Luzern has been a special place for the residents of Lucerne and its guests since 1885. Today, the two gender-segregated wading pools are the last remaining signs of its history as public baths. Swimming here is an iconic activity to this day, not only because of the building’s historic architecture, but the unique panorama. Historic hotels line the landside, while lakeside, you can enjoy a unique mountain view stretching from Mount Pilatus to the Bürgenstock and Mount Rigi. 

Bar & bistro

The Seebad Luzern is an open-air bar and bistro. After a dip in Lake Lucerne, you can head to the bar for a delicious snack and refreshing drink. The food at the Seebad Luzern is fresh, seasonal, simple and uncomplicated. A blend of Swiss, Mediterranean and Asian food culture, paired with homemade iced teas, local wines and beers, fresh summer drinks and aperitifs, completes the menu.

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.
