In Switzerland there are so many natural sources around, that you barely have to bring a bottle and can just take a sip of every source you pass. Typically these natural sources are guided via piping so you can easily use the water, http://sehenswertes.ch/Sehenswertes/schweiz/Doerfer/Schornen/Brunnen/Bildergalerie/SDC14131.JPG.
If you take a radius of 10 km around Zürich city center, there are 1044 drinking water points available 😊. http://ausleuchtung.ch/travel_pack/?lat=47.372454125432945&lon=8.542385101318361&zm=14&rd=10&sk=amenity&sv=drinking_water&t=0 My prefered method of finding them ‘in the field’ on Android is OSMand, which I typically have running whenever I hike or cycle anyway. With the POI search ‘drinking’ you can display the drinking water POIs on the map to see which one is nearest or most convenient for your direction of travel. When I plan routes in advance I use https://www.komoot.com, which lets you display the drinking water POIs and use them as routing points easily. The amount of drinking water PIO on the map of your area off course depends on several factors like (1) availability of natural sources, (2) local culture making them readily accessible and (3) OSM contributors focus for putting them in the OSM database. Here in Switzerland all of these factors are strong, although I find a water point every now and then which is not on the map yet.

Around me public bubblers are found in most public playgrounds, some parks (50%?), some public squares (40%?). Very much depends on the local climate .. if you can open your mouth and get a drink there is not much point in providing another water source :) > > Maarten > > On 2018-06-04 10:29, Philip Barnes wrote: >> OSMand starts for me in less than a second, however the nearest >> drinking water is 150 miles away.
