Hidden in the Wienerwald amidst giant pine trees, finding the Neuwaldegger Bad is like finding a summer Neverland – you’ll never want to leave (especially after you pay 13€ to get in!). For 30 years, Eva Dolezal has taken care of this small, charming swimming pool in Hernals. And the personal touch she lends to it makes it feel like home for all who visit it.
There’s one pool with a shallow area for kids and is surrounded by green meadows and old wooden sun chairs. A restaurant, set in a charming wooden hut, is located right next to the pool where you’ll find all your grandma’s specials: Gulasch, Reisfleisch, stuffed peppers, or homemade cake. The Schnittlauchbrote is also something you should definitely not miss out on, according to the regulars here.
To finish off the picture of this being a place frozen in time, Neuwaldegger Bad has two FKK areas – one for ladies and one for gentlemen, so everyone can feel comfortable doing their thing in the nude… like naked volleyball… and naked tennis… and maybe some naked tree climbing. Whatever you’re into.
Serious swimming options for the serious swimmer: This is not really the place to come for serious swimming, however, if you catch it when it’s quiet enough, you can do some mini laps in the deeper part of the 25m pool.
