Swimming fun in East Belgium possible again from 1 July

Published on 25.06.2020

Just in time for the summer season, nothing stands in the way of bathing fun in East Belgian open-air swimming pools, indoor swimming pools and bathing lakes. As decided by the National Security Council, swimming pools and wellness facilities may reopen their doors to the public from 1 July, provided that safety precautions such as safety distance and a maximum number of people are respected.

"We respect the rules and look forward to welcoming you", write, for instance, the people in charge of the town of Malmedy and the local open-air swimming pool "Mon repos". Overall, the safety of swimmers has top priority in all the facilities in East Belgium, including the Lago-Bäder in Eupen, where investments have been made to provide a new air supply system in the indoor area and, more generally, the latest technology for online reservations. This enables bathing guests of this facility to book their stay from home without any worries.

At the bathing lakes in Robertville and Bütgenbach, admission capacities have been reduced due to this year's official decisions. There are also special regulations concerning the use of changing rooms and water activities. "These can vary depending on the facility and are made in close consultation with the political decision makers," confirmed Björn Pfeiffer from the Worriken/Bütgenbach leisure centre.

To ensure that nothing stands in the way of safe bathing, we would ask all visitors to the open-air swimming pools, indoor swimming pools and bathing lakes in East Belgium to check the official website of the respective facility for the current regulations and reservation options before visiting.
