Bathing and swimming fun

How about some backstroke or breaststroke laps? Or some relaxing minutes in the thermal pool? Pack your swimming things, there are enough bathing opportunities. For example: The ‘Bille Baths’ is an idyllic location right next to the small Bille river with many possibilities to bathe, swim or simply relax in the sauna. The outdoor pool has comfortable 28° C and is easily accessible from the swimming hall.

An excursion to ‘MidSommerland’, an idyllic location on the “Aussenmühlenteich” is like a trip to the Far North – in the south of Hamburg, though.
