Langen’s three swimming pools (www.baeder-langen.de) provide first class leisure activities and spur visitors on to sporting activity. When in the summer the sun beams down from the sky, both young and old alike are drawn to the spaciously designed recreational pool for all the family and to the lido “Langener Waldsee”. In the cooler months of the year it is the indoor pool that is the El Dorado for swimming.
The recreational pool for all the family, located on Teichstraße, has a 50-metre long pool, a five-metre diving platform, a diving pool and an attractions pool. The non-swimmers’ area has been equipped with a wild water chute and a giant and a broad slide. Babies and small children have fun on the mini-slide and mushroom fountain. A generous lawn with a selection of old trees offers sufficient space to all bathing guests. A children’s playground and several courts for basketball, beach volleyball or table tennis round off the offer.
The Langener Waldsee is the largest leisure and recreational centre in the whole of the Rhine-Main region. It is to be found in the city forest and owes its existence to commercial sand and gravel quarrying. On hot summer days more than 20,000 bathers crowd together on the 900 metres of sandy beach. The lake is also popular due to its sailing, surfing, angling and camping possibilities and last but not least because of its extensive nudist area.
The indoor pool located on Südliche Ringstraße boasts one of the few 50-metre pools in the Rhine-Main region. In the 3.80 metre deep diving pool one can learn how to dive. On warm days the temperature of the water may rise to 29 degrees, otherwise it is 27 degrees.
