Piscine des Amiraux In Paris France

The Piscine des Amiraux was designed in 1927 by Henri Sauvage and was architecturally ahead of its time and the Amiraux swimming pool was officially inaugurated in 1930.

The building design is very plain and basic in colours with plain white inside and outside, yet bright red letters that spell out its name on the front.  To break up the continuous white, you will find blue stripes on pillars and blue square tiles placed amongst the white tiles and yellow doors to the cubicles, making the indoor area a bright, cheerful and pleasant place for a swim.

Piscine des Amiraux In Paris France

It is embedded in the centre of houses and has been classified as an historic monument since the year 1991 and because of its appearance, like the swimming pool Piscine Pontoise, it has been used in films and even attracted the filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet, who requisitioned The Piscine des Amiraux for filming a scene of 'Amélie'.

The Piscine des Amiraux is hidden away in the 18th arrondissement of Paris and although it is not as well known as some swimming pools in Paris, it is a very pleasant place to swim and far less crowded than some.

There is a 33 metre long by 10 metre wide pool and the whole building is far more modern than that of the Piscine de la Butte aux Cailles, which was only built three years prior and at this place you can even book courses in aquatic aerobics and aqua basics.

The Piscine des Amiraux is open at the following times:

  • Monday from 5pm through to 7.30pm
  • Tuesday from 7am to 8 am and from 11.30am through to 1pm
  • Wednesday from 7am to 8am and from 11.30am through to 5.30pm
  • Thursday from 7am to 8am and from 11.30am through to 1pm
  • Friday from 7am to 8am and from 11.30am to 1pm and a later session from 4.30pm through to 6.30pm
  • Saturdays it is open from 7am through to 5.30pm
  • Sundays again this swimming pool is open all day from 8am through to 5.30pm

Please note that the times are subject to change and the swimming pool usually opens for longer periods during the summer months, so it is advisable to check prior to your arrival.

The nearest metro station is the Simplon and one of the ways to get to the Piscine des Amiraux is by exiting the Goutte d'Or and you start by crossing the street and boulevard Ordener Barbès, then you take the Rue Boinod and the 4th street on your left, which is Rue Herman La Chapelle, where you will find the swimming pool.
