We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, 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 the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)
Also, 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 the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

It has great locker rooms, electronic locking lockers provided with entry fee (fees are higher on weekends/holidays). I went at about 8:45 AM on a weekday and had to split a lane for 30 minutes but then had the lane to myself and was able to click off 4,200 meters in just about an hour. Lane etiquette seemed very well understood and appreciated.
The aquatic complex houses five different pool options, If you want to do more than laps. There’s a warm water/thermal pool, which is quite large; if you want to have family fun, there’s a pool with water slide, plus a kiddie pool, and an infant pool, and your obligatory Danish sauna.
There is a full activity schedule for the pools on the website, and they say that they always have at least four lanes open for laps. This is one of four pools that the Aalborg Svømmeklub uses and, from what I can tell, that is mostly in the afternoon after school. My contact with the team didn’t yield much of a result, but I don’t believe they have a Masters team, just youth/club level.
The Gigantium complex also houses a basketball stadium, a hockey rink, a fitness center, a wellness/spa center. Everything that you would need to survive the endless cold and rain of Danish weather (not to mention four hours of daylight in winter) and not go crazy.
The center is a five minute walk from the Scandic Hotel, which is southeast of Aalborg proper, but it can’t be more than a five minute cab ride from city center. You buy your ticket at the small café just outside the pool entrance.
