The Harbour Bath in Aarhus

The Harbor Bath is designed by the famous Danish architect Bjarke Ingels Group BIG. The triangular floating complex comprises a rectangular 50-metre-long swimming pool, a circular diving pool, square children’s pools and two saunas.

The Harbour Bath is open for the summer and you can go for a swim everyday from 10 am to 6 pm.

Take a walk on the elevated plank walkway, which doubles as a viewing platform overlooking the pools and water beyond.

Bars and restaurants

The Harbor Bath is a spot full of activities, not just for swimmers. Along the sea front you will find bars, restaurants, shops and even a theater. 

Designed by one of Denmark's greatest architects

The Harbor Bath in Aarhus is designed by Bjarke Ingels. He is the architectural master-mind behind other buildings on Aarhus Ø, Aarhus’ urbane harbor area, for instance the spectacular "AARhus" with its triangular shapes.
