Freibad Sand
The outdoor pool in the middle of Chur's old town treats you with refreshing summer hours.


The «Badi Sand» is iconic and known for its refreshing water temperature! That's because the historic swimming pool in the heart of the old town is idyllically situated in the shadow of the cathedral and is an insiders' tip for visitors to Chur. The 50m-pool is a welcome way to cool off on hot summer days and the beautiful sunbathing lawn and wooden patio offer an inviting spot to relax.

You can have a nice chat or play cards over a refreshing drink and tasty snack at the bistro on the sun terrace. Your gaze will be drawn to the vines, the spires of the churches, and high up to the surrounding forests. Please find more information on the bistro and menu here.

100 years of «Badi Sand»
The Chur Swimming Club was founded in 1921 to encourage the people of Chur to swim when the Chur Swimming Centre (Sand outdoor pool) opened in 1922. In 2022, Sand outdoor pool turned 100 years old. More information.
