River baths worldwide
Flussbad Berlin is of course not the only river bath worldwide. And it is not even the first in the world. There are many pioneers and at least as many contemporary companions.
The tradition of river bathing is a very old one, especially in Switzerland. Whether in the Rhine, Limmat or Aare, the water quality is usually so good that you can just jump into these rivers. Over the past two decades, many cities around the world have bethought of their bodies of water, which are being increasingly reconquered by the citizens.
Our association member Julia Stoff has begun to assemble a small collection of urban river baths. These are located on rivers, streams, former rivers and sea harbours and have been upgraded with more or less infrastructure. This first selection, shown here, is connected to the request to please send us more examples – with a short description of the location. We are glad to extend our collection.
