You can swim in the outdoor pool or in the large natural pool facility with sandy beach. Toddlers love the heated paddling pools. This varied swimming and leisure centre is situated at the heart of Kriens.

Parkbad Kriens is part of Kleinfeld sports and leisure facilities. In the natural pool, there is no chemical cleaning with chlorine. Instead, the self-purifying effect of the natural waters is used, combined with a plant filter installation.


The restaurant indulges you with set meals that vary each day as well as a small menu.
