The Venue

Volksbad Jena - Former Indoor Pool as Event Location

100 years ago the Volksbad Jena (public swimming pool) was built for swimming, bathing and sweating. After its closure in 2001, it was reopened in 2007 after extensive renovation and has since established itself as event location in Jena.
Since January 2010, it houses the management of JenaKultur and some classrooms of the Volkshochschule. It is also ideal for events, celebrations and special occasions.
