Odense Harbour Bath - go for a free swim

Take a dip at Odense Harbour

You will find Odense Havnebad in the heart of Odense Harbour. It opened in the summer of 2016. The structure resembles a ship with a deck and cabin, making it easy to find.

It can accommodate a total of 300 guests at a time. It's free to use and open all year round, making it perfect for winter bathers. During the summer, the water is at least 20°, and in winter, at least 3°. If you want to keep track, you can see the current temperature of water and air on the swimming pool's website. As a guest of the harbour swimming pool, you have access to:

  • Changing facilities
  • Showers
  • Toilets
  • A large sauna (85°). Remember a towel to sit on
  • Small locker for valuables

A lifeguard will be periodically present during opening hours.

Practical information:

  • The swimming pool is open all year round but closed on 25 December and 01 January.
  • If you have forgotten something, please drop by during public opening hours. Unfortunately, it is not possible to call or email.
  • The water in the harbour bath is an established chlorine pool, as the water in Odense Harbour is unfortunately not clean enough to swim in.
  • Although the harbour bath is an outdoor facility, smoking is not allowed on the premises, including e-cigarettes.
