Sunny or rainy, hot or cold, you can always go for a swim in Breda. Whether you like diving into natural waters or prefer the lanes of a pool, in Breda it’s possible for anyone to get in the water. We’re recommending five nice places to go for a swim.

Sonsbeeck (indoor and outdoor pool)

Swimming all year round? Swimming pool Sonsbeeck is the right place. It has two slides, a Crazy River, a baby-toddler pool and a 25-metre pool for swimming lanes. After all the fun in the pool, you can relax in the restaurant, which has a view on the pool.

Swimming pool Wolfslaar (outdoors)

This outdoor pool is situated right by the beautiful forest ‘Mastbos’. The pool consists of multiple pools, a family slide and diving boards. Wanting a break from the water? There’s a meadow right by it with a nice café, where your kids can play around whilst you have a lie down.

Galderse meren (natural water)

If the weather permits, the Galderse meren are a great place to swim in natural water. The lake consists of two parts, one of which is surrounded by a beach. The other part is used for diving and surfing. The water and beaches are very clean and during summer there’s several food stands around.

Asterdplas (natural water)

A great place to cool down is the natural water of the Asterdplas. Around the lake, there’s a beach as well as grass-covered meadows. You’ll find lots of surfers and sailors here, but no motorised vehicles are allowed. Tip: bring food to have a picnic, or grab something to eat at the nearby ‘Texas Hoeve.’
