As the weather is somewhat unpredictable these days, a swim is a great way to keep fit, exhaust your children, or just relax after a hard week of work.  

Most indoor pools are open again, but you many require that you reserve or pre-book a time slot. Not all facilities such as steam rooms, saunas or fitness rooms are operating, but where they are, we have included information on these too. 

An der Schwemm – Bettembourg

Under current restrictions, the large pool is reserved exclusively for swimmers and has been divided into 5 lanes. A maximum of 3 swimmers may be in the water at the same time per lane. 

Families living under one roof can also reserve the other swimming pool up to one week in advance, and come to play, swim or splash around. Reservations must be made by calling 265 295 210. 

Admission costs €4.50 for an adult and €2.50 for a child. Children must be accompanied by a legal guardian.  

You can find swimming time slots and general opening hours, plus more information on rules (such as not wearing shorts), here

The sauna reopened on 3 May but with restrictions.  Reservations can be made one week in advance after 14.00 (call the same telephone number listed above).
