I found the changing rooms and locked my phone, camera and money into one of the safety deposit boxes. The air temperature was 30°C and the pool was reported to be 22°C. My swim was certainly refreshing and I admit the pool is a very unique place to be however, any tranquility or calm that I could have gained was overrun by the many children I was sharing my experience with. Next time, Im going to swim in the evening or attend one of the monthly ‘Nachtbad’ or late night swimming evenings where the pool is open up until 23:00.
I have often been put off going to the Naturbad, as there is a rumour going around that on very warm days or at the end of the season the Naturbad water has a bad smell to it and should be avoided. I didn’t experience this, the only warning I would make is that if you expect clear, blue water to swim in then, you’ll be disappointed as the Naturbad’s water is murky and has green algae floating in it. To be honest that didn’t bother me at all and didn’t hamper my experience in the slightest.
