Swimming in the River Aare

Take a leisurely swim in the River Aare from Solothurn’s outdoor swimming pool through the most beautiful Baroque town in Switzerland.
When the weather’s good, people let themselves be carried along by the Aare’s gentle current. If you get out of the water at Steg Regio Energie, you can pay a visit to Solheure, where a drink awaits all thirsty swimmers.
You can purchase a Wickelfisch waterproof dry bag at Solheure  to keep all your personal belongings dry.
