Whilst Züri Fäscht is a great event and amazing fun i am aware that many of you Ronsters maybe daunted by the prospect of sharing the city with 2.5 million people. But where to go? The areas around the lake are going to be crazy. The obvious solution is to head away from the lake and use some of the swimming spots on the Limmat river but there is a caveat…
Micturation. Tinkle. Pee. Urine. It has many names but if you don’t go a good distance down the river on the weekend that is what you are going to be swimming in and, for most people, that’s a bad thing. As with many of the big events such as Street Parade and Züri Fäscht the water quality takes a big dip (forgive the pun) during and immediately after these events.
So if you don’t want a golden shower from about half a million random strangers I would advise heading past the generating station at Oberer Letten and hitting the Unterer Letten, Wipkingen or Werd Insel instead. Or if you have a rubber boat, float down the Limmat to Dietikon (which I wrote about here) and, as everyone will be partying in the city, avoid scenes like the one pictured below.
On a more positive note, the Zurich authorities take water quality and temperature pretty seriously and they have an online map which shows water temperature and can be accessed on mobile phones. If you see the temperature of the water rising and a slight change in colour, my advice is, don’t go in.

I am a volunteer at PAFI, a small foundation in Switzerland that supports 200 children from an underprivileged community in Brazil to go to school and eat a warm meal per day. Recently, we fulfilled the children's dream of a sports field. To complete the project, install plumbing and buy sport equipment we are looking for some additional funding. Because we don't have any administrative costs, every cent benefits the children directly. Here is the link to the project: https://www.crowdify.net/de/projekt/sport-pausenplatz
Does anyone know organisations and foundations in Switzerland that we could contact to supporting our project?
