This is a large, good pool. As regular swimmers my husband and I enjoyed this pool. Quirky changing rooms (round the pool), free to use lockers no coins required. Good showers. Plenty of lifeguards. We went on Sunday morning during family swim time and it...More

While on a visit in Amsterdam, we wanted to go swimming. We read about this swimmingpool. It is right next to the Rijksmuseum. We had to buy a plastic card for 5 Euros which was programed with our 25 visits. My best gal and I...More

We always love to go to bath houses/hamams when we travel. You usually could find great suanas, spa´s, hamams and swimmingpooles, but this one was a disappointment. It was to basic. No saunas (except small both´s with steam to whom you needed an extra coin),...More

Had a fantastic time here with my partner. Swam, relaxed and took an amazing herbal bath. The building is beautiful and extremely well kept. Staff were polite and friendly. Totally recommend.

Nice small, warm and old-fashioned pool with some peculiarities. There're private dressing cabins, but showers are shared and public. There's a shallow kids zone sharing the same water and separated only by floating buoys (that's why the pool is warm). Didn't see a zone for...More

Entry fee was under €3 per adult(daytime price). Very reasonable price for any city centre- certainly would encourage me to pay another visit. I was disappointed (only a little) as the descriptions online mention the art deco style of both the interior and exterior of...More

This is one of the nicer attractions of Amsterdam. It's a pool located in an old art deco building. 3.50 euros to get in and that includes lockers. Open to public at 8 am each morning. Water is warm (probably 20 degrees celsisus). Lanes and...More

If you like to swim while you're in Amsterdam, you should visit the Zuiderbad. It's located near the Museumplein. It was build in 1897 and became a swimming pool in 1912, since then the design has stayed the same which creates a great swimming experience....More

Zuiderbad is a small swimming pool in the centre of Amsterdam, just behind the Rijksmuseum. It is only 25m long but is set in a very beautiful old building with lovely interior decoration. It is a very informal pool - just perfect if you are...More

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
