Nice swimming pool in the center of Ghent especially if you want to swim laps, there is also a small children pool but ii is more a swimming pool for swimming not playing. It is a city owned swimming pool and they intend to restrict the opening hours due to budget cuts, if you want to go over there better... More

As a historic swimming pool in the center of Ghent this is a very straightforward public place: pool only, no additional features. But it more than makes up for it with a stunning interior swimming hall in the Art-Deco architectural style.

Very nice pool with simple efficient access and locker system, good hours, low chlorine, and nice art deco environment. This was an easy walk from the center of town. It is a typical European experience where swimming laps is equivalent to running an obstacle course with swimmers moving in random directions; sometimes it even feels a bit like "water dodgeball"...

A first time in a swimming pool where you've never been before is always a bit of a struggle. Especially when wearing glasses ;-) But apart from that, my visit was an entirely success. Really a movie setting. With a soundtrack of nice poptunes. Outdoor setting near a marina is simply fantastic.

Visited after reading it was an Art Deco pool - it was lovely (the outside was not so inspiring but the interior is lovely. The pool itself was a good temperature and well organised.
