Where to swim around Bern

Where do the locals swim in Switzerland? That is what we want to find out during the summer series “My Badi”. 

Switzerland is home to not just great lakes and rivers to swim in, but also specific swimming pools that are worth a day out themselves. They may not always have the views of the lakeside locations, but when you have kids - it’s not always about the views - it’s about great facilities, perhaps a playground and of course shade! 

Today Hana from Adina Justine Blog takes us to her favourite place to swim in the canton of Bern.
