Once a part of the fortification of the city towards the lake, these days the Bauschänzli peninsula makes itself useful as a beer garden. Get a big beer (a grosses) at the self-service counter and a bratwurst (veal sausage) with potato salad and enjoy the shade of the big old trees (where they are still standing) and the view of the river. Different bands play popular music (15:00 - 17:30, 19:00 - 22:00, Fri & Sat 15:00 - 17:00, 19:00 - 22:30; no dance music during the FIFA world cup, but the matches will be displayed on big screens) for the mostly fifty-plus guests who hit the dance floor. There is a full-service area where not only the food but also the prices are more sophisticated. Brass bands available for your morning pint on Sundays (11:00 - 13:00).
