NileGuide Expert Says:
Barfussbar is one of Zurich's best places to go out for a drink in the summer. There is nothing like sitting on a moored dock in the heart of the Old Town with a cold beverage in hand. The sun sets relatively late during the summer months, so there will be lots of twilight to illuminate the evening.

Barfussbar, literally "Bare Foot Bar", is one of Zurich's summer highlights. Using the same space as the daytime Frauenbad swimming area, the bar is the perfect location to watch the sun set over Zurich's historic buildings. As its name implies, shoes are not allowed, but this is an added bonus, since you are free to dangle your feet in the Limmat River. Thursday nights are usually freier Eintritt,
or no cover charge.
