A real attraction is the lido-ferry: as soon as the water is warm enough, the ferry Stopps right next to the lawn and picks up the visitors to bring them upstream to the Rhinefall. There you can jump in the water and let yourself drift down the river, back to the bath. There is also an old shelter, from wher daredevils can dive from 6m height into the river, or swing themselves Tarzan-like with a rope.
Also small adventurers will find their challenges:
the small creek inside the park of the open air bath is great to build small dams, and to sail little ships..
A small swimming pool and a spacious paddling pool are ideal for families with smaller kids.
The fire places invite you to barbecue and picnic, and if you haven´t brought along anything, the small kiosk offers chips, hamburgers and sandwiches. The entrance fee has to be paid at the kiosk-there´s no fence, paying is a matter of trust. From the station it´s 10 minutes by foot, just follow the signs.
Tip: Hike from the Laufen Castle at the Rhinefall, it´s only 2km by foot.
