April 26 – 28, 2024
It’s not just our local lakes that offer attractions. Those who like it a little more enclosed are in good hands at the various indoor diving centres in Germany. As we are not fans of heated, deep swimming pools, we have chosen two attractions in Duisburg. Within the old industrial region, two unused facilities have been converted into diving centres.
The Gasometer is Germany’s largest indoor diving centre. With a diameter of 45 m and a depth of 13 m, it holds 21 million litres of water. Over the years, various attractions have found their way into the large pool, from aeroplanes to boat wrecks, there is plenty to discover. The temperature depends on the weather and should be around 8-10°C in April.
Slightly smaller but no less special is the old drinking water reservoir at the Nullzeit diving centre. From a wreck to a shopping area to a cemetery, you will find several highlights here. With “only” 16 million litres of water and a maximum depth of 7m, it is a little smaller, but no less exciting.
We dedicate one day with two dives to each of these dive sites. We stay in two flats, each with two double rooms, kitchen, bathroom and living area. This weekend is self-catering.
Both pools offer old water with a temperature of around 10°, so it’s best to pack a dry suit.
