Had a lot of fun there 😊 but no chance to swim outside and the changing rooms were a bit strange for German standards, as you don't have any privacy 🤔

In Pirbadet you can enjoy several different pools, a well-being area and slides. This makes Pirbadet suitable for all ages, but especially children! Note that it is usually crowded in the weekends and vacations, especially if the weather is bad. Also the view is amazing!

A little expensive however, there are lots of different pools and slides to keep the whole family occupied. Conveniently placed jacuzzi near the pools allow you keep an eye on the kids. The climbing wall above the wave pool was good fun but I'm paying for it today! Well worth a visit.

What a surprise this was! An amazing pool. Loved the jacuzzi's and the lane swimming pool. Something for everyone. Was really impressed with how large and spacious it was. Would highly recommend.

Pirbadet is a clean, modern, well-organized, fun, vastly spacious and extremely multi-dimensional indoor swimming facility. Perhaps one of the best in the world. It sits at the edge of Trondheim fjord with magnificent views of the island fortress Monkholmen and the mountains of Fosen on the other side through the panoramic glass walls. Giant cruise ships dock nearby and drift... More

I have been to Pirbadet several times, and liked it even though it is overpriced and can be pretty busy with training groups and other activities. But for my unpleasant surprise lwhen I visited last time after a summer break - the hairdryers from the dressing rooms were removed..! Instead you' ll find a note that you can rent them... More

Good swimming pools with 25 or 50 meter lane in seawater. Lots of possibilities to play for children. Normally not especially crowded.
