We’re not sure about everyone else, but when we’re feeling the heat one of our favourite ways to cool off is to go for a swim in a local pool. Here are some of our favourite places to take a dip!
This pool is located right next to the beautiful Parc Laval, and it’s not too far from the city center of Esch either. There are actually several pools here—a large main pool, an outdoor pool, a wading pool for the youngest swimmers, and a pool with a large water slide! The main pool (which is indoors) has a diving board, and the outdoor pool (which is by a playground) has water jets and whirlpools. Click here for a list of opening hours—they vary by day! Entry is €4 for anyone over 12 and €2 for children ages 4-11.
Stop by Centre de Natation An der Schwemm for a waterfall, a paddling pool, and the 40-meter “Black Hole” slide complete with sound effects and strobe lights! There’s also saunas, a terrace and a juice bar. This pool is indoors, and you must reserve your spot in advance. Entry is €4.50 for adults and €2.50 for children. You can make a reservation up to one week in advance! One more thing to keep in mind: wearing shorts (American-style swim trunks) is forbidden. Click here for a list of opening hours!
AquaSud in Differdange contains an outdoor pool, an indoor pool and a fitness center! In total, there are 9 different pools, so you’re sure to have some fun! Opening hours are 9:00 AM until 9:00 PM on Monday through Friday, and 9:00 AM until 7:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday. You’ll want to book your visit in advance—tickets are €5.50 for adults and €4.40 for people over 65 or under 16. And entry for children under 4 is free! Swim shorts and Bermuda shorts are prohibited here as well.
Head up to the very north part of the country for Troisvierges’s pools—it’s got both an indoor and an outdoor one! The indoor pool is reserved just for swimming, and you’ll have to make your reservation in advance. Entry is €4 for adults, €3 for children ages 13-18, and €2 for children ages 4-12. Click the here for opening hours! The outdoor pool was recently renovated and is Troisvierges’s largest pool. It’s got water slides, separate pools for young children, a snack bar and lots of green areas to relax in! You’ll have to reserve your space here as well, and entry fees are the same as the indoor pool. Click here for opening hours!
Krounebierg is an aquatic center in Mersch that not only has an indoor pool, but also has a bistro and a wellness center! You’re sure to have a fun day out here. The pool is equipped with a water slide, a whirlpool, diving boards, and water games, and the center itself also has a massage bench and a solarium. There’s also a separate pool for those who don’t want to swim and would rather float around! Click here for opening hours. Just like the other pools on this list, you need to reserve a time in advance. Prices are determined by age and amount of time spent in the pool, and they range from €2 to €6.

This indoor pool is located in Schifflange’s sports center, so it’s perfect for cooling off after a workout (or for the workout itself!). You can also enroll your child in swim lessons here! This pool is meant for swimming, but there’s also a small paddling pool close by. You’ll have to call the center (54 72 42) in order to make a reservation. You can also visit the nearby sauna and steam bath! Click here for opening hours and a list of prices.
Something great about this pool is that there’s no reservation required! It does have a cap at 500 visitors, though, so make sure you get there early! Grevenmacher’s pool is outdoors and complete with a diving board, a water slide, and designated lanes for swimming laps. It’s also got an open-air bath, and there are limits on how many people can be in the pools at once (86 in the main pool, 51 in the non-swimmer pool, and 13 in the paddling pool). In addition, there’s free sunscreen! Entry is €7 for adults and €4 for children and students. The pool is open every day (from May to September) from 10:00 AM until 7:30 PM.
The last pool on our list is up in the historic town of Diekirch, and it’s a great way to cool off after a day of exploring! You can take a dip in the main pool, the non-swimming pool, or the plunge pool. All of them are indoors, and the main pool also has a diving board! Or, if swimming isn’t really your thing, you can unwind in the sauna and spa. The pool also offers a lot of free activities for kids outside during the summer months! Opening hours vary by day; click here for more information! Entry is €3 for adults and €1.50 for children.
