Out & About in the Great Outdoors

Outdoor swimming pool

123,000 square metres of water fun, lots of activities and room to relax. The Fürstenfeld outdoor pool – Europe’s largest – offers plenty of room for sun worshipers and endurance swimmers, for bathing beauties, water rats and non-swimmers of all ages. The distinctive 10-metre diving platform is a main attraction for those seeking adventure and the sports pool is the nonplus ultra for sport enthusiasts. The speed slide, 115 metres long, further enhances the pool’s awesome recreational opportunities.  In addition to the large pool there is also a 50-metre sports pool and many recreational facilities such as 6 beach volleyball courts, trampolines, table tennis and excellent food services.

The campground is ideally located right on the Feistritz River but borders on the premises of the outdoor pool and has direct access to it.
