About Openluchtbad de Papiermolen

De Papiermolen is the outdoor swimming pool in the city of Groningen, a national monument with 5 swimming pools and a large sunbathing lawn. This beautiful and spacious swimming pool offers summer swimming fun for all ages. After a thorough renovation of the swimming pool, de Papiermolen was re-opened in 2019. The swimming season runs from Saturday the 27th of April until Friday, the 30th August.

Whether you want to swim or relax in good weather, there is something to do for everyone. Children can enjoy themselves in the water with 3 diving boards and a 35-meter slide. The 50-meter swimming pool is also very suitable for swimming laps and on the large playing & sunbathing lawn you can relax in the sun! The pool is heated throughout the season, so you can also enjoy swimming in colder weather.
