Beckenried, Ruetenen

The Rütenen diving site is located in a beautiful park with swimming areas, barbecue areas, a snack stand (only in good weather) and a toilet. The parking spaces are chargeable.

Unfortunately, the very beautiful wall is currently closed to divers due to the risk of landslides. The restricted zone is marked under water with warning sign sand ropes.
