Cholplatz Lakeside Beach

Strandbad Cholplatz,  Seestrasse 73,  6442 Gersau

The lido Cholplatz is located in the beautiful village of Gersau.


In 2012 this lakeside beach was voted one of the most beautiful swimming areas in Switzerland. It is located on the edge of Gersau and boasts a magnificent view of the village and the surrounding Alpine ranges. Cholplatz is family-friendly and has a children’s pool. Visitors particularly appreciate all the free toys and water play equipment (e.g. the large water trampoline and slide, the jumping bag and swings), as well as the delicious snacks served up in the lakeside pub. You can even hire stand-up paddle boards.
