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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 only place near central Amsterdam where you can swim laps.
Very nice, reasonable lane lines, polite distribution of fast/slow swimmers.
The 25m pool is 3 speed-designated, wide lanes, plus a double lane for socializers. The lanes are divided by loose ropes, so the water is very turbulent. The pool gets extremely crowded (10 or more per lane) during lap swim times.
Talk with a guard before just jumping into a lane – at times, some lanes may be designated for non-freestyle strokes.
I give it an A+ for a European public pool: Rebuilt just two years ago, it's brightly lit, spacious, immaculate, smoothly run, and offers a stunning canal view.

I was disappointed. The locker rooms were not clean; the pool has sand and hair; and it was crowded. I would have preferred to swim in the canal.
[November, 2014]
Open seven days a week. Lap swim daily from 7 to 9 AM, on Sunday from 7 AM to 12:15 PM. Consult web site for two other daily lap sessions.

An electronic wrist band will get you through the turnstile. Turn right downstairs, grab a hanger, then touch the band to the lock of the public (designated M/F) changing rooms. Touch it on the opposite door to exit, then touch it on the electronic key pad located on the lockers. A locker will be assigned to you. Touch the bracelet to the locker door to open it. To leave the facility, you must deposit the wristband in an opening in the surface of the turnstile that faces you.
