Natural swimming pond – Bert Evens
My prefered spot is the Zwemvijver Boekenberg. A zwemvijver is basically an outdoor swimming pond fed with naturally filtered water. It’s situated in Boekenberg, a fairylike parc that used to be a castle garden. In the zwemvijver, you’ll feel one with nature because of the greenish, sweet water surrounded by old trees. A hidden gem.
I’m a member of the Deurnese Ijsberen, so we swim all year round. Ijsbeer is dutch for polar bear. And you can take that literal; in winter the water temperature drops to 2 degrees Celcius, but even then I don’t miss my weekly swim. For the cold hearted, don’t worry, the pool is only open to public from may to september. During those months it’s a refreshing getaway from the hot city center.
