La Motta outdoor swimming pool is open during the summer time from May to September.
When it opened in 1923, La Motta Lido was the first open-air swimming pool in Switzerland. Originally built as a wash-house for Fribourg’s workers, its two baths were filled with water from the Sarine river. But in 1940, the city’s population successfully appealed to the Federal Court for the baths to be open to everyone. The lido has still retained many of its original features, such as its red tiles and quaint sky-blue cubicles. La Motta also offers spectacular views of St. Nicholas Cathedral.
