Ufschötti park is the place to go in Lucerne if you want to swim for free.
The park has little by way of amenities, but there’s lots of free space. You can lounge around or play frisbee and badminton under the trees on the lawns.
The Ufschötti beach bar is a popular hangout for people of all ages and stays open well into the night during the summer. You can have a barbecue in the park or stock up on snacks and drinks at the kiosk.
Situated between the Alpenquai motorboat marina and Tribschenhorn yacht marina, the Ufschötti is a few minutes’ walk from Lucerne railway station. Parking is provided on Alpenquai.
