Hi guys,

every year in summer there is a great swimming event in Basel city, Switzerland. Let's have fun on the Rhine together!

We will meet up at 17.30 in front of Protected content

Please make sure, that this Rhine swimming quite different than swimming on the lake or ocean. You DO NEED a swimming sack or Basler Wickelfisch to swim with. If you don't have one, please buy one in Basel or online in advance. And of course you need to be able swim by yourself. The Rhine has some streaming and sometimes you need to swim bit strong to get out of the water.

For sure the weather play an important role for swimming. It should be warmer than 25 degree of air temperature and it should not be raining. I will update the weather condition next days.

best wishes
