The Alpamare is a water park and indoor swimming pool located in Pfäffikon in Switzerland (30 minutes from Zurich).The park opened in 1977 and quickly became the then largest indoor water park in Europe . The pool area is 25,000 m² and has eleven water slides with a total length of 1.6 km and a wave pool. Close to the shores of Lake Zurich, Alpamare offers both indoor and outdoor swimming, as well as the usual selection of slides, including one 295-foot lazy river ride. And if all that’s not enough, there’s even an outdoor pool with underwater music.
Built 30 years ago and continually updated it is probably not the most glizzy place in the world (even looks a litle old…), however is great fun for a day or half day for families, specially with young kids. Like everything in Switzerland it’s pricey. Expect to pay about CHF 42 (USD 42) for a 4 hour adult pass – a little less for children. The use of the wellness centre (sauna, steamroom etc) is an additional CHF 5. However, there is plenty of variation of lockers and locker sizes and the electronic wristband opens and closes the locks and are also used to pay for food. Changing rooms were very clean and warm and parking is free.
Final nice thing for me was the stunning views across lake Zürich towards the mountains that set this location off wonderfully.
