The large Obere Au outdoor pool in Chur is located by the Rhine at the foot of the Calanda. It is characterised by the extensive sunbathing lawn with shady trees and views of the mountains around Chur. The 50m-pool with 8 lanes is suitable for swimming lengths, while the learning pool with its wide slide and a tube slide offers plenty of fun for children and the spacious children's paddling pool will lure even the youngest to the water. Ball sports enthusiasts can let off some steam playing beach volleyball. If you're hungry, you can grill your own food in the barbecue area, get a snack from the takeaway or Khurer Gnusswaga or eat at the Obere Au sports restaurant.
By the way: There is also a swimming pool in Chur town centre, called "Badi Sand".
