Total bathing fun - in all weathers! In November 2022, the municipal council approved by a large majority the draft plan of the architect's office Lehmann (Offenburg) for the new Rastatt combined pool. The existing Natura outdoor family pool will be expanded to include a spacious indoor swimming pool, including a slide and a diving pool. The 50-meter pool will be retained, as will all the trees on the extensive Natura site. Multipurpose and toddler pools will be attractively redesigned. Construction is scheduled to begin after the end of the 2025 outdoor pool season. The work is expected to take two and a half to three years.
The anticipation is already great: because after the opening of the combination pool, water rats no longer have to study the weather forecast if they want to spend their leisure time at the Schwalbenrain. Even if it rains in summer or the sun is too hot, the protective roof of the indoor pool is just a few steps away.
The planning of the combi-pool with a cost estimate of 36 million euros is the responsibility of the architectural firm Lehmann GmbH (Offenburg) together with AO Landschaftsarchitekten Stadtplaner und Ingenieure Mainz GmbH. The project is accompanied in an advisory capacity by an advisory board consisting of representatives of the city administration, the municipal council, the youth delegation and Rastatt associations.
