River Reuss

I don't take charge if you are going to this place, well actually into this place. Lucerne, the city where I live, is next to the "Vierwaldstättersee" (name of the lake). Here also starts the river Reuss that passes the city and also divided into the old and new part of it. Lots of tourists are coming to see the "Kappelbridge" (view picture) that crosses the river. After this bridge there are coming some others.

The third bridge is also historical and a good spot to jump into the water. Well of course just in case the water is deep enough at this time. Otherwise use the steps to go into it. To be honest I don’t know many people that use this river at this part for swimming. Probably because it’s strange to swim in a river surrounded by a city and stuff, but the water is pretty clear. You could even drink it. No joke. Because some miles further where the river leaves the city and goes through a beautiful nature you will find lots of people. But I like it anyway. It’s a special feeling swimming under the train bridge (view pictures), along those buildings and so on. If you are lucky you will meet some other crazy people that put a kind of board on a long rope to a bridge so that they can surf.

So if you are in summer here, give it a try. BUT never forget: Swimming in a river is different to swim in a lake. You have to be a good swimmer and know how to act when you get into a water curl.
