Construction began Naturbad Riehen in 2013 with the full support of Riehen's residents, who have long wanted a new public pool in the water which would not contain chemicals. Studio Herzog & de Meuron originally came up with the design of similar natural pool in 1979, but the idea was postponed for more than three decades before the municipality did not support the idea.

In the water treatment process, the first filter filters out grease, skin particles and hair. Then the water is sent to the regeneration zone, where plants such as water lilies and irises work with aquatic sediment and absorb bacteria and other compounds. Finally, clean water is pumped back into the area for swimming.
