Open Air Swimming Pool Wuhlheide

A hot tip for the summer: go swimming totally relaxed and enjoy the light and air in the Wuhlheide.

In fine weather the Open Air Swimming Pool in the Wuhlheide is a popular attraction for families, children and young people. A 25-metre-long swimming pool and a multi-purpose pool with children’s and baby slide invite you to exercise and enjoy a swim. There is a sunbathing lawn and a children’s playground with climbing frame and seesaw. As exercise in the fresh air is known to make you hungry, a snack bar and a kiosk offer snacks, drinks and treats.

Historisches History

The outdoor swimming pool in the Wuhlheide is as old as the park itself. From the very beginning, its horticultural concept provided not only landscaped rest areas and forest zones close to nature, but also areas for active recreation. This included the outdoor swimming pool Light and Air Pool Wuhlheide (“Licht- und Luftbad Wuhlheide”). After the Second World War, the landscaping fell into neglect, but the outdoor swimming pool was still used. In the course of the gradual reconstruction of the historic park area, which began at the end of the 1990s, the pool was extensively renovated in the style of the 1920s. The operators are the Berlin Pool Company (Berliner Bäder Betriebe).
