Swimming-spot at the river. Very crowded on summer-weekends. Mostly young people. Walk up towards the lake and let yourself float with the current. Current is not so strong, also okay for not so confident swimmers. Most of the time there is also a slack-line at the next bridge upwards the stream. Water is always a bit colder than the lake. There is also a little bar and the offer fast-food. Sometimes DJs in the evening.

Swimming spot at the river. Less crowded than "oberer Letten". More familys. Also good for walking upwards and then floating with the current. The current can be pretty strong here (depending on the level of water in the lake). If you dont fell confident swimming in strong current ask Simon/Lorenz first. Water is a little colder than the lake.
