Joséphine Baker: A Swimming Pool Floating in the Seine
Along the quai in the 13th arrondissement (across from the Bibliothèque François Mitterrand), you will see the entrance to the Piscine Joséphine Baker, a 25 x 10 meter swimming pool floating in the River Seine.
The pool is open year-round but it’s a particular joy in the summer when the glass roof is opened to allow for sun-bathing on the large deck overlooking the river.
The pool complex also houses a wading pool for kids, saunas, a hammam, a jacuzzi and a gym.
It’s only €3 for a visit to the pool, or €24 for 10 visits, or €37 for a 3-month pass. Quite a bargain! It’s best to check the exact opening schedule before visiting, but generally the pool is open 7am – 9am and 10am-11pm on summer weekdays, 9am-8pm on summer Saturdays & Sundays.
