Best public pool in Munich for kids?

I'm looking for recommendations for a good public pool where we can take our 6-year-old during a visit to Munich in June. If the weather's nice, we'd like to swim outdoors, but I'd appreciate having an all-weather option as well in case it rains. Our hotel is the Residence Inn on Orleanstrasse, if that helps narrow down locations.

Thank you!

Hi, there are several options:

Prinzregentenbad (outdoor)

Müller’sches Volksbad (indoor - swimming only)

Cosimawellenbad (indoor wave pool)

or via S-BAHN

Therme Erding (with a huge water slide park)

Have fun!

If you want to look up the opening times, addresses and for some photos:

- outdoor swimming pools: http://tinyurl.com/buyn43z

- indoor swimming pools: http://tinyurl.com/cd6dw4a

.

The Prinzregentbad is the nearest to you, there's a bus stop opposite your hotel, take either the no. 100 or no.54 bus until Prinzregentenplatz (4 minutes) and walk the remaining 300m.

Or you walk the 1.1km from your hotel to the outdoor pool: http://g.co/maps/z2zaj

.

To get to the Müllersche Volksbad, just take any S-Bahn from Ostbahnhof and get off at the first stop "Rosenheimer Platz".

Or walk 1.8km through the French quarter to get to the indoor pool: http://g.co/maps/bma7r

.

Please see here for the web site of the Therme Erding: therme-erding.de/de/…english.html

To reach the Therme, take the S-Bahn line S2 from Ostbahnhof to the stop "Altenerding", the journey will take 49 minutes. Then walk 600m.

For kids the Cosima is ace.

For outdoors the Schyrenbad or PRbad are fine. Again for a family affair I would suggest you even head to the Olympic complex- tourism and swimming combined... outdoors for sunning, indoors for swimming...

My local is the Dantebad...right next to Munichs best local beergarden...

I wouldnt recommend the Müllerische as the most child friendly pool. Go there for adult swimming, pampering and admiring the architecture...

The complex at Erding is open quite late in the evenings but its really a half day commitment to water pursuits ut there to make it worth while.

Michaelibad is another long standing locals pool.

Thank you, KepinItReal! The idea of swimming in the Olympic pool sounds really fun.

We always go to Michaelibad Freibad. Large outdoor pool area. Fun pool with slides. Olympic style square pool. Little kids pool. High dive pool.

Large expansive fields with volleyball courts, Some kids play areas. Plenty of trees for shade. Right next to U5 Michaelibad stop and if you want you can go to the Michaeligarten Biergarten afterwards.

Only €3.60 entrance. In fact all the SWM pools are cheap

If you go on googlemaps on the Feichtstrasse you will see the Ostpark and Michaeligarten with its lake and then the Freibad next door with its 4 pools.

Please note there is an indoor pool but this is separate. Seperate charge/entrance

Heres a list of the "Freibad" (outdoor pools) in Munich

swm.de/privatkunden/…freibaeder.html

and as examples

Michaelibad

Dantebad
