Swimming spots near Strasbourg

Summer in Alsace generally means heat waves… And as there is no sea or ocean (it’s probably the only flaw of the area… What do you mean I’m not objective? 😉 ), we need to find another way to cool down. Of course, there are swimming pools, but it’s not the same pleasure as swimming in a natural setting. Thankfully, in Alsace we have lakes and gravel pits! Here are the swimming spots near Strasbourg. Yes I know, you won’t be alone on a beautiful day (these places are usually overrun by locals), but it’s still very pleasant to swim there....
