THE SWIMMING POOLS OF DRESDEN ELBLAND
Lidos and indoor pools
Immerse yourself in a greener world. Take the plunge from the high board. Or simply reel off lengths of the pool. Maybe dip just your big toe in and retreat. Splash about with the kids and whizz down the big slide for the fourth time. Whatever your choice of aquatic activity, Dresden Elbland and its stunning selection of water parks will not disappoint.
For all-comers: an awesome selection
Spouse, offspring, parents in tow? Dresden Elbland offers family members of all ages almost unrivaled choices. The lidos and natural adventure pools, for example, with giant slides and aquatic gameplay galore and sometimes just a stone’s throw from key tourist attractions or nestling next to a stately home. Others score top marks for canoe, boat and bicycle rentals, sand pits, volleyball and table football. From fine dining to finger food, bathers will never go hungry and some of the larger pools incorporate a sauna area, a ‘wellness oasis’ and play areas for children. But Dresden Elbland also has several remote and tranquil bathing spots accessible only on foot or two wheels. Just click through the list; we guarantee that you will find bathing opportunities to suit your personal taste.
Refreshing: Natural pools
Dive down with the ducks and race the fish! Deep within the woods, spend mellow moments beholding the bright blue sky. Or take a dip in a time-honoured natural pool loved by locals for more than a century. Dresden Elbland is home to numerous natural pools to cool off in – all with their own stand-out charm and covering the length and breadth of the region. One of the best is Naturbad Mockritz, a natural pool in delightful surroundings. Listen to the croaking of the frogs and, if you’re lucky, the company of a curious family of ducks. A must-try for solos, couples or groups with kids.
