There are plen­ty of oppor­tu­ni­ties when it comes to swim­ming in and around Stuttgart. If you like water, you won’t lack for options, whether you want to cool off in the sum­mer, warm up in the win­ter, get fit, relax, or play with the kids!

Outdoor Pools

Freibäder” are out­door pools that are open dur­ing the sum­mer. While “Freibad” trans­lates direct­ly as “free bath,” these pools are not free in terms of cost. Instead, they offer the free­dom of the open air and sun­shine as you swim. Stuttgart has five out­door bathing cen­ters with var­i­ous char­ac­ter­is­tics, so whether you’re look­ing to relax, play sports, or enter­tain the kids, you’re sure to find the right fit.

Freibad Möhringen

Actu­al­ly, this bathing cen­ter offers both indoor and out­door swim­ming options. There is a heat­ed “ther­mal hall,” with a swim­ma­ble canal to the out­doors. That makes this pool the first of the sea­son to open and the last to close. It’s very pop­u­lar among fam­i­lies, thanks to the three pad­dling pools and baby slide as well as bar­be­cue area. There is a mul­ti­func­tion­al sports com­plex with plen­ty of fun activ­i­ties, and there is also a large sep­a­rate nud­ist area.
