Swimming

Take a swim or enjoy the sauna

During the summer, swimmers and sunbathers have access to two outdoor swimming pools (Helsinki Swimming Stadium and the Kumpula Outdoor Swimming Pool), as well as numerous public beaches.

The Ulkoliikunta.fi service provides real-time information on the status of public beaches located in the Helsinki region – including their blue-green algae situation and water temperature. The beaches’ lifeguards update the information during the beach supervision season.

There are also nine swimming halls which are run by corporations with support from the City.
