If the temperature is rising and you’re longing to cool off, go for a swim! Oslo is a city surrounded by water in many ways, meaning there are plenty of places to take a swim in Oslo.
Sørenga Seawater Pool, Sørengkaia 69
It’s open year around and consists of fresh seawater, directly from the Oslo Fjord. At Sørenga you’ll find a swimming pool, a beach and a children’s pool. Sørenga pool is located in the fairly new neighborhood with the same name, which has plenty of restaurants and cafés if you get hungry from all the swimming!
Frognerbadet, Middelthuns gate 28
After your visit to the magnificent Vigeland Sculpture Park, take a swim at Frognerbadet! If you prefer swimming pools over seas this will be your cup of tea. Frognerbadet consists of an outdoor swimming pool complex split into two 50-metre pools, water slides, a diving tower and a children’s pool. The pool, that’s only open during summer, has been offering Oslo residents to come for a swim since 1956. At the premises there’s locker rooms.
Tjuvholmen Badeplass, Dyna brygge 4
Closer to the city center than this little gem is practically not possible! Out on Tjuvholmen lies the bath where adults can access the fjords and kids use the small beach located here. Surrounded by modern houses and restaurants, this is probably one of the coolest places to go for a swim.
