Arena Badeschiff [1] is open daily from 8am until midnight, and it offers yoga classes, massages, a wooden pier to relax upon, and even a small sandy beach as well as a refreshing swimming pool on the river. [2] The entry fee is 4 Euros and there are also seasonal passes for those that cannot make it to the real beach but want to escape the city’s heat and relax in a cool atmosphere.

Measuring 105 feet long and 26 feet deep, the space offer amazing panoramic views of the city’s most renowned landmarks [3]. It serves breakfast, lunch and all sorts of fresh foods [4] throughout the day, and there is also an open-air bar for enjoying a cocktail and live music while watching the setting sun. And for those that had a long night of hard partying the night before, there is a large comfy bed for siestas along the many deck chairs on the pier.
