Swim in the river? Yes, in Zurich you can! The Unterer Letten and Oberer Letten river bathing facilities provide swimming channels in the Limmat River.
The "Öpfelchammer", endearingly called "Oeli", is the Number One meeting place for everybody. It was also Gottfried Keller’s restaurant of choice and it is Zurich’s oldest and most authentically preserved tavern. To this day the old traditions of a wine restaurant are honored with the famous Balkenprobe, or beam test. The “Oeli” also has its own “laws”.
