It was a good idea to start the Badboot, a floating swimmingpool in the docks of the harbour of Antwerp and to transfer it in winter to a ice-skating arena. Unfortunately it sunk down to the bottom of that dock last year and will not...More

Really! It actually sunk in the dock and has been salvaged two months ago. I hope however, they will make a new one, because the idea was excellent and swimming there with a cocktailbar at hand was great

The boat sunk into the river and so there's no more badboot. So don't go there :-) It will be quite dissapointing.

Super clean barge pool in Antwerp Harbour with lovely warm showers after your swim. A great experience. One thing though - the boys could not wear their board shorts and had to BUY fluorescent blue lycra boxer shorts to wear in the pool. Cringe!

We had a great early-evening swim at this barge pool in Antwerp Harbour. The water was warm, the pool and dressing rooms tidy, and at 4euro per person it was entirely reasonable. We had trouble finding it (more signage would help) but were so happy...More
