Designed for the 2000 Olympics, the Europaportpark often hosts international competitions. Although the International Olympic Committee decided in favour of Sydney at the time, the SSE is still the largest swimming pool in Europe with a water area of 3391 square metres.
The pool has a 50-metre pool (26°C), a non-swimmer area (28°C) with a slide, a wading pool, and a therapy pool (33°C). There is a special happy hour fee at a reasonable price for early birds and for working out. The offer is valid for 90 minutes between 6:30am to 8:00am or 8:30pm to 10:00pm.
