Get relaxed in Thermalbad & Spa Zurich – The main attraction of the Irish-Roman Spa of Zurich is definitely the rooftop pool which offers an amazing sight of the city. If you are not so fond of the open air pool, you can also enjoy the wooden tubs, steam baths or swallow pools.
A dip in Frauenbadi Stadthausquai – The term Frauenbadi signifies bath for the woman. Naturally, the Frauenbadi Stadthausquai is the public bath for women in River Limmat. In the early nineteenth century, this bath was built for the women, so that they didn’t have to take a bath at the fountain in the night to avoid the prying eyes of the men. Till date, this bath is exclusively used by the women.
