Early Swimming and Evening Swimming
We organise Early Swimming and Evening Swimming: lane swimming in our 50 metre long pool early in the morning or in the evening. These extra hours are possible thanks to dozens of active members who help out as volunteers on reception and as authorised lifeguards. During the summer season you can swim your laps at the following times:
- Monday to Friday: 6:30 am to 9:30 am.
- Monday to Thursday (not on Friday): 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm
- If on Mondays to Thursdays temperatures are 25 degrees or more the pool will sometimes stay open to the public until 7:00 pm with the last entry at 6:30 pm. There is no Evening Swimming for members on those days. You can check the official website of the city council or call 020-692 50 30.
- Monday to Friday: 10:00 am to 5:30 pm. Last entry at 5:00 pm.
- Saturday and Sunday: 10:00 am to 5:30 pm. Last entry at 5:00 pm.
Frequently asked questions

Are there special rules of conduct during the Early Morning and Evening Swimming hours?
- Changing in and out of swimwear is permitted only in the changing rooms and not at the poolside.
- You may only swim in the 50-metre pool because this is the pool we rent, not the shallow arm of the pool.
