Swim in the city centre!Frihamnen, Gothenburg
Allmänna badet is the Swedish name for the communal bath in Jubileumsparken in Frihamnen.
Since the summer of 2015 the people of Gothenburg has got a new favorite place to cool themselves off during hot days. The bath in The Jubilee Park is the first communal bath that has ever floated about the river Göta Älv. The pool is 20 meters long, 8 meters wide and is open for anyone who wants to take a dip. And in 2021 it’s gonna be even bigger with several pools!
Just like the sauna and the beach in the same place, the bath is a part of Gothenburg’s 400 year anniversary 2021 and has been made after the people of Gothenburg’s wish to be closer to the water. The water is being cleansed without chlorine and the bath was made with requirements for social and ecological sustainability together with RaumlaborBerlin.
You can’t book at a spot at the bath, if there’s a crowd the bathing time is limited to one hour per person.
Allmänna badet offers free sailing courses called “Alla kan segla” for school classes, groups and citizens alike. The sailing camp is open for all ages where you, during five days, learn the basics of sailing.
