Harbour bath Islands Brygge

Open air swimming right in the centre of the city. Meet local families with children, beach boys and regular swimmers alike.

On hot days, Copenhageners swim with the city's spires in free view. During the week, many locals pass the pool for a quick dip on their way home from work. During the winter, locals enjoy the saunas.

The quality of the water is checked daily and has to be approved by the authorities before swimmers are let in. There are five pools in all, two of which are specifically for children. The shallowest pool is 30 cm deep. The diving towers are one, three and five metres high respectively.

There is a lawn in front of the pool where you find lots of room for picnics etc. Often this area is busy until quite late with people BBQing, enjoying a beer or listening to music.

A freezing but refreshing dive

The harbour bath at Islands Brygge is expanding and adding new bathing facilities that gives you the opportunity to swim during the cold winter months as well.

Parts of the wooden deck will be expanded and lifted, so there is room for three underlying saunas and thermal baths with a great view over the harbour. There will also be another an additional pool.
