This is a large, good pool. As regular swimmers my husband and I enjoyed this pool. Quirky changing rooms (round the pool), free to use lockers no coins required. Good showers. Plenty of lifeguards. We went on Sunday morning during family swim time and it was busy but part of the pool is.sectioned off for families. No problem swimming 20... More

While on a visit in Amsterdam, we wanted to go swimming. We read about this swimmingpool. It is right next to the Rijksmuseum. We had to buy a plastic card for 5 Euros which was programed with our 25 visits. My best gal and I could share one card. The pool must have been renovated in recent years because everything... More

We always love to go to bath houses/hamams when we travel. You usually could find great suanas, spa´s, hamams and swimmingpooles, but this one was a disappointment. It was to basic. No saunas (except small both´s with steam to whom you needed an extra coin), crowdy in the pool and no order where to swim etc.

Had a fantastic time here with my partner. Swam, relaxed and took an amazing herbal bath. The building is beautiful and extremely well kept. Staff were polite and friendly. Totally recommend.

Nice small, warm and old-fashioned pool with some peculiarities. There're private dressing cabins, but showers are shared and public. There's a shallow kids zone sharing the same water and separated only by floating buoys (that's why the pool is warm). Didn't see a zone for babies.

Entry fee was under €3 per adult(daytime price). Very reasonable price for any city centre- certainly would encourage me to pay another visit. I was disappointed (only a little) as the descriptions online mention the art deco style of both the interior and exterior of the building. I cannot say that it was so obvious of that style when I...

This is one of the nicer attractions of Amsterdam. It's a pool located in an old art deco building. 3.50 euros to get in and that includes lockers. Open to public at 8 am each morning. Water is warm (probably 20 degrees celsisus). Lanes and open swimming plus a waterfall on one side of the pool. Great chance to see... More

If you like to swim while you're in Amsterdam, you should visit the Zuiderbad. It's located near the Museumplein. It was build in 1897 and became a swimming pool in 1912, since then the design has stayed the same which creates a great swimming experience. The water in the swimming pool isn't heated and this was terrible when I was... More

Zuiderbad is a small swimming pool in the centre of Amsterdam, just behind the Rijksmuseum. It is only 25m long but is set in a very beautiful old building with lovely interior decoration. It is a very informal pool - just perfect if you are in Amsterdam on business and want a quick swim before your first meeting of the... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
