The outdoor pool with what is probably the largest sunbathing lawn far and wide and with a view of the mountains.
Please note: the 2022 season is over. Next year, the outdoor pool is expected to open on 13 May 2023.
The large Obere Au outdoor pool in Chur is located by the Rhine at the foot of the Calanda mountain. 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. Sports enthusiasts can let off some steam during table tennis, at the group fitness area or at the pirate themed playground. If you're hungry, you can grill your own food in the barbecue area, get a snack from the take away or Khurer Gnusswaga or eat at the Obere Au sports restaurant.
Play afternoons in the outdoor pool in good weather From the 2022 summer season onwards, the play afternoons will be held in the outdoor pool on Wednesdays and Saturdays when the weather is fine and warm (instead of in the indoor pool.)
In 2021 Swiss Aquatics has included the swimming pool of the Obere Au outdoor pool in the official list of Olympic pools, category A. Category A are pools for the highest demands that are suitable for holding major competitions. Diploma Olympic pool, cat. A
