Important Notice Please Read - CLICK HERE

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the more than 20,000+ facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times; we cannot tell you about the availability and cost of swimming lessons; we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their access policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include email addresses and hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in each listing is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editors become aware of a change but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about three years to complete; in many places, prices will change two or three times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. Please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with your area and visiting for the first time.

To our English users: For reasons described in the FAQ, county names shown the listings in England are the cities' and towns' historic counties, not necessarily the counties they are assigned to now.

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.
