Facility Reviews
The best pool for laps in Munich.
Time and day are the critical variables for lane availability.
Two wide lanes in the middle for lap swimmers. Excellent lane etiquette!
WOW! Water was cool, clear, not salty.
Of all the pools in Europe, this was the best for swimming hard and fast. There was a lane where people were really training! Downside: Kids were EVERYWHERE in the locker rooms.
Great for laps! Crowded, but fast and organized. Cold water; Jacuzzi® not much better.
U.S. Olympian Mark Spitz won a bunch of gold medals right here in 1972. Class act pool. Wear Speedo®-type trunks. Pay €4.30 at the front desk. Don't forget to bring a €1.00 coin with you downstairs, as you will need it to lock your locker. Oh, that little black blank rectangle on the shower wall about solar plexus height? That's the motion detector that activates the shower. Unless you wave your hand directly in front of it, no water for your shower! Bring your own soap, shampoo, and swim equipment. [May, 2014]
