The Kaiserslautern Swimming Club was founded at the turn of the century. Potent sponsors enabled a huge project: the open-air swimming pool Freibad Waschmühle in the Eselsbach river valley. The ‘Wesch’, as the Kaiserslautern residents were to call their swimming pond, was from then on a mecca for swimming friends. Back then as well as today, the water area of 7,200 square metres and the sunbathing area of 25,000 square metres garnered admiration.
The swimming season is ordinarily from May to September. Please gather information regarding detailed opening hours from the German-language website.
The ticket office closes at 7 pm.
Bus connections: Line 112 (Waschmühle, Bad).

In the past, the more adventurous were not afraid of the march to Gelterswoog. The still water with its blooming water lilies and the tall fir tree forest made the 'Hohnegger' an attractive destination for young people.Gelterswoog Lido
