Unobstructed views across the town and mountain from the pool: A plunge into cool water, exciting slides down the flume, leisurely lolling on a hammock or a romantic swim by a full moon - the Wolfensberg swimming pool offers pure holiday enjoyment for young and old. And it's all topped off by views from the water of the culture-imbued town of Winterthur and the mountain landscape on the horizon.
