Lake Lucerne’s Beaches: Strandbad Tribschen

Luzern is located by the Lake Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee). In the hot summer, as is this year’s, is the perfect spot to cool down. There are many public beaches all around the lake. Some are free of charge, while others charge entrance fee. Strandbad Tribschen is one of those who charge entrance fee. For a fee of 5 CHF (adult), you can enter the area and use the facilities: children’s pool, showers, dressing rooms, bar, football and volleyball fields, etc. For additional fee, you can borrow the sports equipment (e.g. sup, boat).

The beach is sandy and the level of the water by the shore is no higher than the knees. There is also a barrier marking the area where the depth of the water is no longer safe for non-swimmers.

There is a lot of shade and a small pool for children. I guess that is why it is very popular with the families with children.

What I disliked the most at the Tribschen beach is the surface of the bottom of the lake. While the beach and the shore area is sandy, is the surface of the lake muddy. When I first stepped in, my feet sank into the mud. Not a pleasant feeling!

The beach

I was at the Strandbad Tribschen twice, once when my favourite beach in Luzern Uffschötti was packed we didn’t feel like joining the crowd. The second time we’ve went there when my boyfriend’s parents and grandmother were visiting. Although it is a nice place, I don’t feel it is worth the value of the entrance fee, unless you are a family with children or if the other Luzern’s beaches are too crowded.

When relaxing at the beach, you might get a visit – a flock of ducks.

    We have always been to Luzern in the spring when the weather is much cooler so it’s lovely to see your photos of the summer months Urska! Sounds like it’s been a hot summer for you this year so the lake must be a refreshing place to hang out. Always love those magnificent views of the Alps! 🙂

      This year was ideal for swimming in the lake. The water is usually even in the mid-summer water rather cool, but this year was pleasantly refreshing. 🙂
