The place for early morning swimming if you like ploughing up and down and pretending you are getting fit. When the building was first opened in 1898, this was the Velox cycle school, complementing the sporty atmosphere of the Museumplein. In 1912 it became the Zuiderbad, one of the oldest swimming pools in the country. It was threatened with demolition in the 1980s but those early morning swimmers - who include some pretty influential people - managed to keep it open and make sure it was renovated.
