    Take a leisurely swim in the River Aare from Solothurn’s outdoor swimming pool through the most beautiful Baroque town in Switzerland.

    The following entrances and exits are suitable for bathing in the Aare:

    Entrances
    - Freibad Solothurn
    - Landi Steg Solothurn

    Exits
    - Regio Energie

    When the weather’s good, people let themselves be carried along by the Aare’s gentle current. If you get out of the water at Steg Regio Energie, you can pay a visit to Solheure, where a drink awaits all thirsty swimmers.
