    Here in the USA I recently saw a film called “Watermarks”. It was about Jewish women swimming champions back in the 1930s who were swim-team members of a Vienna sports club called “Hakoach”. The indoor swimming pool of this club was really beautiful. It must still exist since the “Watermarks” film was made in 2004. What is this pool called today, and where in the city is it? And…most of all…can anyone go swimming there? I plan to be in Vienna in a few weeks and it would be great to swim in this pool, if possible.

    –> i pasted the above comment as i deleted the original comment i got instead of approving it.

    i did research on hakoah club vienna. unfotunately most of the material is in german. but we will look forward to the film

    the club still exists or again.


    i do not know if it is at the same location.

    maybe someone else knows

    the hakoah now is at hallenbad floridsdorf but the magnificent pool from the film is the “amalienbad” here in vienna and you still can swim there.

    We (my wife & I) recently returned from our trip to Europe, including a brief stay in Vienna. Thanks to the info provided by Luc Gross on this blog site we had a terrific few hours swimming at the “Amalienbad”. I’ve been in some pretty nice pools and spa facilities here in the USA, but the Amalienbad was the most beautiful I’d ever experienced. We even managed to get a tour of the olympic training pool downstairs and the sauna, etc. It really made our too-brief stay in Vienna excellent. Thanks again Luc!
