A little history

The Bains des Pâquis have existed since 1872. First built in wood, then extended in 1889 on piles, they were rebuilt in solid form by the City of Geneva in 1932.

In 1890, the Bains became public and municipal. They cost money from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and were free on Sundays and public holidays.
A few free hours were reserved for women in order to avoid promiscuity.
