Summer Fun — Swimming in the Rhein

When the days are hot in Basel, the best way to cool down is to take a swim (or float) down the Rhein. There are official swimming lanes where you are allowed to take a refreshing dip in the water, which can get pretty busy on hot summer days. However, as with all sports activities, and particularly swimming in open water, there are some rules and precautions you should keep in mind to make your float a safe and enjoyable experience.
