forest bath


In the immediate vicinity of the Hilden Forest, the forest pool is an idyllic place to swim, romp and relax during the warm season. Surrounded by green nature, the sporty outdoor pool offers, among other things, a 50-metre-long swimming pool and an equally large non-swimmer pool. The brave water rats look forward to the extensive diving facility. This has a one, three, five, seven and a half and ten meter board for the brave jump into the cool water. You can also go high on the 50 meter long water slide or on the wide slide. For the younger guests there is a toddler slide in the shallow water and also a paddling pool with colorful figures. In addition to the swimming area, the approximately 15.000 square meter facility also has a spacious sunbathing lawn with many trees and numerous leisure activities. Sports enthusiasts will get their money's worth with beach volleyball, football or table tennis. But the fun factor is also high with open-air chess or on the children's playground.
