Our nearest swimming pool is Freibad Auwiesen-Töss and we can't get enough of its excellent facilities. There is a super whizzy slide for the big kids (which of course includes us!) a smaller pool with a mini slide and lots of inflatables for the little ones to enjoy while their parents sun themselves on the side, a larger pool with three lanes and a diving pool.
The green surrounds are wonderful, with barbecue areas and plenty of showers to cool down. There is a restaurant cafe which does all sorts, from Thai curry to burger and chips to ice cream and slushies.
We have a Sportspass, which has just celebrated its 20th birthday with a special event which included free entry for all at the weekend, a band, swimming races for the kids and tight-ropes across the diving pool. The Sportspass is excellent value and includes entry to all five swimming pools in Winterthur - and the amazing Pfaffikon, as well as entry in the Winterthur when many pools become ice rinks!
