From early in the morning, till late at night

In 1912, when the Zuiderbad opened, it was far ahead of its time. Both central heating and electric lighting made it possible for bathers to use the impressive building in the winter as well. It may not be a pool for the professional competitive swimmer, but a passer-by wanting to absorb the ambience of one of Amsterdam’s delights would do well to step inside, pull on swimming togs, and try the dappled water.
