What we are about

Built in neoclassicist style, the swimming area is a majestic hall of marble pillars, sculptures, palm trees and an arched ceiling with skylight windows. With its central location, historic significance and architectural character, it is a preferred choice for locals when it comes to swimming and wellness. Øbro-Hallen is located right by the central park Fælledparken and near the local sports and cultural institutions of Parken Sport and Entertainment, Krudttønden, Østerbro Stadion and Theatre Republique.
