Built in 1971 It complemented the 1950’s Pankow outdoor pool.
The Complex consisted of a 25m swimming pool a smaller 12m non-swimmer pool and a sauna in the basement.
In 1996 the indoor swimming pool and the adjoining open-air pool were taken over by the Local council
In 2000, the outdoor pool was renovated and reopened it as the Pankow summer pool in summer 2001. Unfortunately, nothing more came of the previously announced renovation of the indoor swimming pool: it was closed by the pool operators due to financial losses.
Set in a residential street, opposite a school the most awkward issue to skipping through the Harras fencing are nosey neighbours.
