History of the Oderberger Baths


The ‘Stadtbad Oderberger’ was designed in1898 by architect Ludwig Hoffmann to supply the then rapidly growing district of Prenzlauer Berg with public institutions. In 1986 it was forced to close and remained so until 2012 when extensive renovations began. In January 2016, the Hotel Oderberger Berlin was opened. The pool area continues to be used as an event location, but since October 17th, 2016 the swimming pool is re-opened for the first time in 30 years.
