When the temperatures rise in summer, the inhabitants of Basel, Switzerland have their own idea how to cool down again: they pack their stuff in waterproof packs sold throughout the city and jump into river Rhein, often close to Solitudepark. They drift through the city center and you can often watch people walk back in swimming cloth and fully wet through the center.
Sometimes you can see clusters of people floating and sometimes they bring crazy equipment with them. I tried the river myself and I can assure that there is no better idea to refresh than this.
