The weather is cooling off and that means it’s time to seek out warm & toasty indoor activities for the munchkin to enjoy. One of our favourites? Babyschwimmen in der Kleine Schwimmhalle Wuhlheide (‘babyswimming in the Wuhlheide forest‘s little swimming pool’)
The swimming hall has 2 pools (a shallow ‘beginners pool’ & a lap pool) as well as a ball-filled baby wading pool. The water temperature is kept between 32°C – 35°C. Baby swimming lessons are provided for a mere €4/hour with one of the most patient & calming teachers I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting – in Germany, that is. Swim rings, water wings, paddle boards & floaty toys are readily available at no extra cost during Babyschwimmen.
Kleine Schwimmhalle Wuhlheide, An der Wuhlheide 161, 12459, Berlin
Baby swim every Monday & Wednesday from 8am – noon and Fridays from 9am – noon
(the very reasonable) Entry fee: baby & 1 parent – €6
additional family members/friends – €4/person
= mommy, daddy & baby pay €10 for hours of splishy splashy fun + a few laps to help mommy lose the last of the babyweight!
*bonus: the munchkin is absolutely exhausted after a morning of swimming & is pleasantly subdued for the rest of the day…a solution to the upcoming terrible two’s perhaps?
