It was a great afternoon to cool down, after a hot afternoon city exploration walk. Very affordable, great crowd, pontoons and diving boards were wonderful, food and drink was better than expected. My 12,14 & 18 year old teenagers loved it!

Bad Utoquai is an anachronism. It looks like a place that is more at home in 1920's than 2000's. It's, essentially a fully configured swimming pier with dressing rooms, a freezing cold shower, steps into the lake, and some diving boards. The whole place is...More

Very expensive, overcrowded and unfriendly place. Very hard to find even a place to sit down on hot days. And there are duck-lice in the summer month.

Such a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. After walking all day it was nice to just relax and take a dip in the chilly lake. We got to people watch, read magazines, and they even had food. Keep in mind it's very quiet (in...More
