Hallenbad Süd

Hallenbad Süd, Kassel

The Hallenbad Süd is an indoor swimming pool at the city quarter Brückenhof of Kassel, Germany. It is existing since 1971 but it was completely refurbished in 2010 and is a very modern facility. You will find two pools – one for children and a 25 metres sports pool. Within Kassel, the Hallenbad Süd is rather remote but it is worth getting here. Only day tickets are offered and cost 3,50 Euro – the same you would pay for 1,5 hours in the Auebad (if you get a discount by getting a customer loyalty card).

Sachsen-Therme

Sachsen-Therme, Leipzig

If you need some relaxation or want to do some sports at Leipzig, Germany, the Sachsen-Therme might be your choice. It is a spa in the city quarter Paunsdorf in the East of the city and therefore a little bit remote. Therefore, it has everything you need: a whirlpool, a flow channel, artificial waves, a sauna, an outdoor pool and a 25-meter sports pool. It feels a little bit like a copy of the Ostsee-Therme (Scharbeutz) and the Westfalen-Therme (Bad Lippspringe) if you’ve seen one of them.

Swimming with penguins

Spreewelten, Lübbenau

The Spreewald (or Błota in Lower Sorbian) is a nice former swamp area where you can hike, ride your bycicle, do canoeing or let yourself be taken around in small traditional ships. But what if the weather is bad? In Lübbenau, Germany there is also a nice spa – the Spreewelten.

Nemo

Nemo, Magdeburg

The Nemo is a spa and sauna in Magdeburg, Germany – close to the Elbauenpark. It includes indoor and outdoor pools, a slide, two restaurants, three saunas and a steam bath. It is nothing really special and it is of medium size – but I absolutely enjoyed the silence at the sauna and the chance to relax after hours of walking throughout the city. Continue reading “Nemo”Y
