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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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 Notes

Swimming in the pool described above is swim suit optional, so men and women swim on alternate days. (Swim suits have been allowed only since 2001.) There's a smaller, bathing suits-required pool open to all. See the schedule on the "website" link, above.
The pool was built in 1928 and is decorated like a Roman Spa; it was completely renovated and reopened in October of 1999. Word has it the place is really "posh".
The pool was closed from May 29 through August 28, 2016. This was probably an annual, recurring closure.

Facility Reviews

The entrance fee is for the lockers on the lower floor; a curtained-off room on the terrace overlooking the pool can be had for just a little more. It's very swank. There is also a sauna. But, while the clientele when you are there are always same sex, the life guards are always women.
One lane is reserved for lap swimmers here. The water is very clean!
It’s not so good for lap swimmers; it’s gentlemanly swimming up and down, at a slow pace.
This is a wonderful place to swim downtown. Since it's nude swimming, be mindful and check online as to what days are for men and for women - they do not swim together. It's not ideal for lap swimming, as there is usually only a large lane or two for lap swimming; sharing the lane with several people is the norm. But the place is amazing, clean, and with multiple saunas. The upstairs has a terrace that surrounds the pool with private, curtained-off cabana rooms. If you are a swimmer, it's a must visit in Helsinki.
