Berlin’s best swimming pool architecture


Originally published on The Spaces



Like the lidos of London and the piscines of Paris, Berlin’s bäder come to life in the summer months.

The city has a rich cache of Victorian and early 20th-century swimming pools that survived the onset of WWII. Many have been restored to their former glory – with Veauthier Meyer Architects becoming the go-to practice for such revival acts – while others have taken on new life as restaurants and spas.

Here, we do a lap of everything from Art Nouveau swimming halls to a domed spa with an underwater sound system.
