eriksdal-exterior-105h.jpgAt the Eriksdal swimming complex you’re going to find something for everyone who loves the water. There are pools indoors and out, public saunas and diving platforms. Eriksdal is a good place to go when the weather turns nasty. The indoor area has a terrific adventure pool—with a water slide, simulated rapids and bubble pools—and both 25-meter and full-sized Olympic 50-meter pools.

The Swedish National Swimming Team trains here in the summer, which can mean that some of the pools may be closed to the public from time to time. But what difference does that make if you can get a world-star swimmer’s autograph instead?
