Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and 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 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For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us.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.

Facility Notes

The pool is striped with 25 meter lanes in both directions, which is not common in Europe. It appears that there must be a boom or bulkhead to shorten the 30 meter lanes, but no boom is visible in the photographs. On the side of the pool that would be the other side of that divider, there are two striped lanes, both about 20 meters long, as there are staircases leading into the pool at both end of the lanes. Check the photographs associated with the Targeted Google Map link, above, as a picture is, indeed, worth a thousand words.

Facility Reviews

The most modern short-course pool in Germany.
This is a fantastic facility - light, big, open. The lanes are extra wide - eight lanes were set up plus a large open swim area, where people were also doing laps. I went at what I would expect to be one of the busiest times - Saturday early afternoon - and there were only one or two people per lane at any time.
It's super easy to navigate - pay downstairs and get a card for the locker from the cashier (no coins needed) - the changing rooms and the pool are on the 2nd floor of the facility. The changing rooms are not separated by gender, but by individual (Einzel) and group (Sammel). Some people also take stuff with them poolside. Caps are not required.
It's a great pool - I'm looking forward to going again today!
