Piscine de l'Illberg

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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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

This facility and the Mulhouse Olympic Natation / MON Club share the same street address and are so close together that the Piscine de l'Illberg's location icon on our map search tool covers up the Mulhouse Olympic Natation's icon, unless you zoom in quite closely.

Facility Reviews

A 21st century facility set in a large sports complex a short way from the centre of the town (a 2 km walk or Tram Route 2 to the Palais de Sports stop). This outstanding 50 metre pool opens most weekday mornings at 7:30 AM and remains continuously open until the evening, unlike most swimming facilities in the area. However, do check the facility website for any variations. Eight lanes: one marked 'intensif' (i.e. fast), five marked 'regulier' (i.e. medium), two marked 'occasionel' (i.e. slow). Of the 'regulier' lanes, two were marked for those using bits of kit; the remaining three were for those using arms and legs only! Between 7:30 and 8:30 AM there were barely 25 swimmers in the pool, making for a really enjoyable experience.

At the facility reception desk you will be issued with a chipped bracelet. For casual users, changing is in individual cubicles each with dry and wet side doors. Once you have changed, take your day clothes with you through the wet side door and place them in a locker. Once you have loaded it, the locker is activated by closing the door and pressing the button with the chip on the bracelet. (There is a small amount of storage space pool-side for stuff that you want to keep with you.) After your swim, go through the above process in reverse. Your locker door is opened by once again pressing the button with the chip on your bracelet.

As with all other facilities in Mulhouse, the authorities at Piscine d'Illberg require swimmers to wear a 'maillot de bain sportif' (e.g., Speedos®) and strongly recommend the use of a 'bonnet de bain' (i.e., a swimming cap).
