In the Swiss capital, Berne, it’s become something of a fashion.

To cool off during the recent heatwave and to have fun.

We don’t quite agree that there are no beaches in Switzerland as there are thousands round many of the lakes, but the land-locked country certainly doesn’t have a sea for people to play in.

So jumping into the River Aare is certainly an option.
