What sets your favourite Badi apart from the rest?:
The spectacular location of this Badi is what makes it a special destination. It's a great one to wow guests from abroad, during the week is very quiet and gives the impression of being the area's best kept secret... The waters are crystal clear and there are spring boards, platforms and even a water seesaw to keep younger ones entertained.
The badi is part of a Naturcamping area so you could make an overnight of it too if you so fancied.
Anything yummy that we must try on the menu?:
Badi restaurant is standard fare, but convenient to grab a meal, quick snack or an ice cream.
What is one thing you never go to the Badi without?:
Tell us a little about yourself:
I’m Suzy wife of Ari, a British mother of two boys and a little girl, with whom I have lived in Zug, Switzerland for the last 7 years. Having worked as a clinical pharmacist in London for many years, my time is now occupied by running around after my family and dragging them around to discover the beautiful experiences Switzerland has to offer. In other moments I can be found trying to master the dual disciplines of German and Swiss German, singing in a local choir and enjoying the occasional glass of something cool and sparkling with friends.
