Intro

The most popular open air bathing spot in Bern. As with all other public baths in the town of Bern, the Marzilibad is completely free. The separate “Paradiesli” and “Männerbad” areas allow men and women to sunbathe unclothed.

The Marzili (also known as the Marzer) has a paddling pool for younger guests and a sports pool with 8 x 50m lanes, a non-swimmer pool and a diving pool with 1m and 3m diving platforms. There are also 10,000 square metres of open space for relaxing in.

If you visit the city in summer, sooner or later you will be recommended a visit to the “most beautiful river baths in Europe” with a view of the Swiss Parliament House and minster – free of charge, please note.

The first baths opened here in 1782, when admission cost 5 cents. In 1822, an oval swimming pool with a timbered wall was added, fed by the River Aare. The green area was added in 1957 and in 1968 the 50-metre pool was built.

Without a doubt, the most special thing about the Marzili is the opportunity to swim in the open water of the River Aare (but you must be a strong swimmer to do so!). There are several spots around the pool and along the river with steps and handrails for you to enter the water. Guests change in the baths and then make their way upriver to the entry point of their choice.

Getting there: By train to Bern, then preferably on foot – the lido is located directly beneath the Parliament House, Marzilibahn or by car (parking spaces are signposted “Marzilibad” and a charge is payable).
