The Freibad is a large swimming area located to the east of Stuttgart Central.
It offers a large park that surrounds the pool for people to enjoy themselves and relax in between swimming. For adults they offer a large pool with diving platforms and enough space to move around.
For children, they offer two seperate pools. One for smaller children, and one that allows children to swim without the danger of becoming lost in the depths (the deepest it gets is about 5 feet). The best part is that there is a large playground where children can go and play and parents can lay in the sun and not have to worry about the youngsters!
And, for those who worry about what they look like in a swimsuit, leave those worries at home, at the Freibad...anything goes! Tops are optional, and supermodel-esque women are a rare sight!
This is a swimming place you can actually enjoy!
