Should be on every Bergen Itinerary
Aug 2021
I went today and wanted to write a review immediately, I loved it so much. I am a big bathing fan (Blue Lagoon, Gellert, Onsens, Korean Bath etc) because it is a deeply meditative activity that opens up a unique side to each culture you experience it in. This ranks up there with some of the best, despite it being much less premium (more like a public swimming pool than a spa). This is a small spot nestled in a park at the edge of the old part of Bergen. There is light jazz music playing overhead. There is a big diving board for you to launch yourself into the North Sea, or the more timid can slowly lower themselves down the ladder. The whole of Bergen is stretched out in front of you. There is then a warmer pool to recover in after, and saunas where you can spend the rest of your time chatting to locals who came here to relax at the end of their day.

Sea swim
Aug 2019 • Couples
I was desperate to get in the sea while away, luckily we had one relatively sunny day so we took advantage.

The changing areas are clean and small lockers are provided for valuables, you are able to take you bag outaide around the pool which we did.

When we arrived there were only a handful of people there. We bravely jumped into the sea water which was really quite cold but bearable and definitely a refreshing 2 mins! After that you can get into the heated seawater pool, it isn't deep so good if you have kids with you. Deep enough to swim though. The lane closest to the sea was roped of for lanes.

The best part about this place is the view we went around 4pm and the sun was shinning right onto the pool.

We then used the sauna to warm up.

Great place to visit if you want to brave the sea with the safety of a lifeguard (it does give quite a shock) and chill out after a long day of walking.

Collegiate swimmer was happy
Aug 2019 • Family
My 21 year old son is a collegiate swimmer and needed to train while on vacation! He swam in the 25 meter pool which was very warm for competitive training and cooLed
Off in the harbor! He loved it and the Queen Mary cruise ship was docked nearby making it more special! Cost $10USD per person or 85NOK

Best for the hot days
Jul 2019 • Family
We got lucky to be in Bergen in the few very hot days during summer end of July. This saltwater swimming pool was the highlight for the kids (7 and 11). We also took advantage to swim in the fjord that was over 20 degrees warm and very refreshing. The place is small and can get crowded, but we loved it anyway. An easy 15 minutes walk from the city centre. There is also a nice playground close by with a few climbing walls and trampolines.

great place for kids and a family
Jul 2019 • Family
hot pool, ocean and a sauna. The kids loved to dive in the cold sea and then go to the saune. For families with kids: combine this with the aquarium next door =amazing.

I feel so alive!
Jul 2018 • Friends
Such a cool place to visit. The heated pool isn’t super warm but if you rotate being in the hot dry suana, then jump in the cold fjørd, and then relax for a little bit in the heated seawater pool, you feel so alive and refreshed. You get a spectacular view while you are there. The staff is super friendly and helpful and they are working on getting lockers set up (because they’ve recently opened) but the front desk will hold your stuff if you don’t feel comfortable leaving it around the pool area. They have things for sale like snacks, goggles, and shampoo. It takes about a 25-30 min walk from the city center but it’s a really nice and easy walk, not need to find transportation. Once you get to the end of the street there is a park with a walkway to follow down to the pool itself, so it’s kind of hidden but don’t worry, it’s easy to find as long as you can get by the water.
Don’t be scared to jump in the fjørd, it’s super refreshing and a great story to tell your friends when you get home!

Swim safely in a fjord!
Jul 2018 • Couples
If you want to add swimming in a fjord to your list of achievements when visiting Bergen, then this is a lovely way to do it safely. You can wear a life vest, if you like. There is a diving board for the very brave.

There is also a pool for doing lengths. Very small pool and you will have to follow the person in front of you. There is a very small pool for the little ones.

Some tables and chairs, but also grass and rocks to rest on. A kiosk for drinks and snacks. We didn’t try the sauna.

The view is stunning. You can take the public bus (11) there.

Be warned, there are no lockers, so don’t take lots of luggage with you.

If you are shy, there are no private changing rooms (one big room with a bench and hooks for your clothes). Plenty of showers.

A lovely thing to do on a sunny day - rest your feet, take a book. There is no shade.

Brilliant for all ages
May 2018 • Family
We were fortunate to find ourselves in Bergen during a heatwave and went here on the recommendation of a couple of locals. Was fantastic both for us adults and our three children. A splash pool for little ones, a larger swimming pool for older ones and the highlight - a lifeguarded section of sea to jump into (much colder than the pools but very refreshing). Life jackets provided and various inflatables on which to climb. Also a sauna and space to sunbathe. Cheaper entry after 4pm, but we chose to make a day of it.

Popular tradition in Bergen

Swim over the fjord in heated seawater in this cute public bath with sauna. Who dares, could also jump from the trampolin into the much colder sea.

A wonderful place to relax with a view
Jun 2016
This sea water open air swimming pool is tucked away on the end of one of the promontories in Bergen, away from the tourist crowds but well-liked by locals. The pool temp is great for swimming & there's a sauna, you can also choose to take a dive into the fjord if you feel brave enough. After the swim, relax on one of the benches or lawns around and watch the ferries come and go. Great value too.
