Open-Air Swimming on the Seine

outdoor swimming pool in parisAlong the quai in the 13th arrondissement (across from the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand), you will see the entrance to the Piscine Joséphine Baker, a 25 x 10-meter swimming pool perched on the River Seine. The pool is open year-round but it’s a particular joy in the summer when the glass roof is opened to allow for sun-bathing on the large deck overlooking the river.
The pool complex also houses a wading pool for kids, saunas, a hammam, a jacuzzi and a gym.
It’s only €3 for a visit to the pool, or €24 for 10 visits, or €37 for a 3-month pass. Quite a bargain! It’s best to check the pool schedule before visiting, but generally the pool is open 7am – 9am and 10am-11pm on summer weekdays, 9am-8pm on summer Saturdays & Sundays.
