Winterthur and Frauenfeld no swimming pool with sauna

I have to say it as this is annoying me for some time.

In Winterthur and Frauenfeld (two cities that are nearby my location) don't have swimming pool accessible entire year with sauna !

Grueze swimming pool had it until they renovated last year and closed sauna for whatever reason. It was always full therefore it's not really clear to me why they did that.

I know that you have sauna in the Banana City spa and gym but I would like to have an option with the swimming pool where my kid could play&swim and I could enjoy high temperature...

Now only option is to drive to Zurich or Schaffhausen. Damm...

Re: Winterthur and Frauenfeld no swimming pool with sauna

Yeah that is a whole new level of "first-world problems". In this "rich country", there are of course plenty of pools with sauna, just not at every corner and in every town. I assume you realize Frauenfeld has a population of 22'000 - how many pools with sauna would you see in your country in a town that small? Probably not exactly many either.

Winterthur has several options, though many with outdoor pools during the summer only - Wülflingen, Wolfensberg, Töss to I think, and so on.

Your location says Zurich, so pretty sure that if you live anywhere between Zurich and Frauenfeld, you will easily find 10+ options within a 20-40km radius in either direction. It's really not that bad.

Actually in my origin country I have pool+sauna open an entire year in about 10 km drive. Here where I lived I had no problem to find this setup in the max 20-30 km radius.
As said it was in Winti until they renovated it last year and now it is gone. Of course I can go to Konstanz (what I do from time to time) but if I just want to go for quick sauna+pool it's not possible anymore unless I drive to Konstanz or Rheinau, Schaffhausen or Zurich.

Thanks for the suggestions and your concern about my problems - and yeah it is cool to have only that kind of issues ...

Re: Winterthur and Frauenfeld no swimming pool with sauna

Not too far from Winterhur is the "Water World Wallisellen", which offers state-of-the-art Sauna (as well as a full 50m pool)

http://www.sportanlagen-wallisellen....gebot-wellness

The Spa offering costs 26 CHF, the regular bath is for 8 CHF for a single entry (like most things in Switzerland, single entries/fares are expensive, but yearly passes are fairly reasonable priced)

If you're a big Sauna lover, the probably a reasonable gym is the best choice. I'm a member of "Active Fitness", which is roughly 2 CHF/day if bought on yearly subscription, and my healthy insurance is paying half of it. So, if I visit it 3-4x weekly, I'm just paying 2 CHF per entry, which is cheap even for German pricing levels..

Let's not forget that Swiss wages are high, and that high prices are quite normally, but there are (sometimes) ways to go around them.

There's also Embrach (Badi Talegg), which is closer to Winterthur than any of the above - http://www.badiembrach.ch

Well, guys I will find my way around - yes indeed Banana has spa&wellness but not a normal swimming pool for swimmers.
It's great feeling to go to sauna after swimming 2 km and now there is no option nearby - so I complained

Sauna. Switzerland! You gotta be kidding-women sitting around in full bikini and men sitting around with their surfing shorts down to their feet! What a joke.
