The Amalienbad, with its Art Nouveau and Art Deco elements, is one of the prettiest of Vienna's indoor pools. The pool is situated in the heart of Vienna's largest workers' district and is a magnificent example of the construction activities of "Red Vienna" in the 1920's. Above all, the wall tiling and mosaic work in the women's sauna are still well worth seeing today.
Even older than the Amalienbad is the Jörgerbad. Completed just before the First World War, the Jörgerbad is an impressive Art Nouveau building and the oldest of Vienna's indoor pools still in existence.
If you're in Vienna with children, you should drop by the Dianabad, where wave pools and a pirate ship provide as much fun as the super-long water slide, which even runs "uphill".
Any amount of action - as well as relaxation - is promised by the Hütteldorf indoor pool. The heart of the pool is an adventure area: with flowing stream, massage jets, water canon, play pool and whirl loungers. Swimming enthusiasts can do their lengths in the sport pool. A generously sized sauna area with steam bath, bio sauna and infrared booths extend an invitation to relax.
The Stadthallenbad, constructed in 1974, has been refurbished throughout and is Vienna’s most modern swimming center. The architectural jewel by Roland Rainer is an important building of the post-war modern era and was fitted out with state-of-the-art technology during the refurbishment. At the same time, the original look of the 1970s was retained and restored. The Stadthallenbad is not only one of the most popular pools in Vienna, but also serves as a training center for competitive swimmers - and includes two new diving towers. Vienna now has two one-meter and two three-meter diving boards for the first time, meaning that in future it will be able to host international synchronized diving competitions.
Therme Wien, which opened in 2010, promises an experience for all the senses. Numerous offers in the water and on dry land on a total of 74,000 square meters attract young and old alike.
