Outdoor pools: time blocks are cancelled, already booked tickets remain valid

The outdoor swimming pools in Bonn can be used again without time limits from Saturday, July 17, 2021, after the early swimmer's block.

They open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Sunday, plus 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets already booked remain valid. Tickets booked for the 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. time slots can be used from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Attendance will be expanded, but will remain limited. "We want the incidence of infection to remain at a low level and therefore consider the regulations made in the crisis team to be necessary," explains Stefan Günther, head of the municipal sports and baths office. Bonn is currently in incidence level 0 and could theoretically lift all restrictions on the use of the pools. With the regulations now in place, even if infection numbers increase and the incidence level rises as a result, there will be no need for any time adjustments until the end of the outdoor pool season. The regulations are thus reliable for bathers.

The pool operation aligns the maximum guest numbers with the specifications for incidence levels 1 and 2. A maximum of one person per seven square meters is allowed in the pool. Based on the available lounger and water areas, the following maximum user numbers have been set:

Römerbad 2.500 persons
Ennertbad 2,500 persons
Hardtbergbad  2,000 persons
Outdoor pool Rüngsdorf  1,200 persons
Outdoor pool Friesdorf  800 persons

For early swimming, tickets can also be purchased at the ticket offices on site. For the regular opening hours from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., prior booking via (opens in a new tab) is still required.
