Floating swimming pool

The floating swimming pool, belonging to The Ritz Carlton Spa is afloat in the port basin of the historical Volkswagen power plant of the Autostadt. Since its construction in 2005, the floating swimming pool is one of the year-round, exclusive attractions of the Hotel The Ritz-Carlton in Wolfsburg.

The 50 metres long outdoor pool within the harbor is constantly heated at 29°C all year round. The construction of the pool embedded in the port basin follows the tradition of the so-called "bathing ships" that used to be popular at the turn of the last century in the Spree of Berlin.
