Sun is finally out! Here is our selection of “refreshing spots” in Luxembourg: swimming pools, ponds, lakes…It’s your choice.
Outdoor swimming pools in Luxembourg
Our beautiful country is overflowing with swimming pools. In Luxembourg City alone there are 6! That being said, when summer comes along with its sometimes-sweltering heat, cooling off in a swimming pool is nice, but in an outside swimming pool it’s even better.
So here is a non-exhaustive list of swimming pools equipped with outdoor green spaces in Luxembourg.
In the Centre
In Strassen, “Les Thermes” (1) will delight young and old alike with its outdoor swimming pool, water slide, and greenery perfect for tranquil sunbathing.
In the town of Niederanven, the swimming pool “Syrdall Schwemm” (2) is an oasis of freshness in a futuristic setting and above all with an incredible view. Guests can wade into the leisure pool inside the complex, equipped with jet showers and balneotherapy, but also enjoy the outdoor pool with its whirlpool station. Take a break in the outdoor reclining deck chairs and enjoy the tranquillity in of the green and sunny surroundings.
In Mersch, the “Krounebierg” (3) aquatic centre will be your children’s favourite playground with a wide variety of aquatic activities scheduled during the summer months. The expansive lawn and its deck chairs complete this perfect picture for a relaxing afternoon where living is easy!
In the West
The swimming pool “Réidener-Schwemm” (4) at Redange-sur-Attert is exceptional with a large complex consisting exciting water slides, outdoor pools, and an indoor wading pool for small children. Reclining deck chairs are available outside to relax after bathing.
In the South
If you have children, or if you have maintained your inner child, don’t miss the “Aquasud” (5) located in Differdange. Two outdoor pools welcome swimmers and families, as well as a big water slide, a paddling pool, a lagoon of games and especially 2000 m2 of green spaces as well as mineral beaches! Yes, you will forget being in Luxembourg for a day’s time.
In the East
And what if you combined swimming with tasting local wines? What a great idea! For this, head to Grevenmacher with its “open air bathing” (6), superbly situated along the Moselle. On the other hand, stay safe, drink or swim, you have to choose!
The country’s lakes and ponds
The Lake of Haute-Sûre (7) is the ideal place to sunbathe, picnic, swim, and simply enjoy a summer day with friends and family. If you want to take the time to learn a bit about the history of the lake, the office of tourism of Eislek organizes a 2-hour solar boat ride.
Finally, head for the village of Weiswampach (8) with its two artificial lakes. On one of the lakes only fishing is permitted, but on the second, swimming and water sports are possible.
The ponds of Remerschen (9) are also to be placed at the top of your list. Before or after a swim you can take a gourmet break at the Bistrot Gourmand, a restaurant with a superb, shaded terrace at Remerschen.
The good news is that Lake Echternach (10) will have its own swimming zone by the summer of 2022! Work is now in progress. Patience please!
Addresses for a water getaway
For those who wish to enjoy the pool for more than one afternoon, consider the numerous campsites in the country that have outdoor swimming facilities.
The Beaufort campsite and its “Aqua Park” (11) or the “Birkelt” (12) situated at Larochette are great places for a refreshing getaway in July and August.
Locations to combine aquatic pleasures and sports!
It’s hot, but you don’t want to just bathe and laze? Go directly to the Rosport Resevoir (13) where both water sking or even “banana” boating are possible.
You can also practice water skiing or wakeboarding at the Ski Nautique at Grevenmacher (14).
With this list, you’re ready for summer. When the time comes, don’t forget your sunscreen and your bathing suit!
Have a nice swim!
