Strandbad (Open air swimming pools with a lake and a beach)
A prime example for the active organization of leisure time are the municipal open air swimming pools with a lake and a beach, which are one of the nicest outdoor swimming facilities in the far surroundings. In summer they attract visitors from near and far, who appreciate the Mediterranean ambience and the generous range of bathing and playing opportunities. Sun worshippers and water rats enjoy these attractive facilities, as well as strollers and those wishing to do sport. It is a successful combination of a romantic bathing lake, extensive lawns for sunbathing and old trees.
The large swimming pool, the non-swimmer's pool with a double slide and the children's paradise leave nothing to be desired. At the yearly beach festival which is always held on the last weekend before the summer holidays, the visitors get into a holiday mood, celebrating until late in the night under the chestnut trees. In the colder season the beach invites you to go for a stroll or run. The inhabitants of Frankenthal are proud of “their” beach as a popular destination for the whole family.
