Rüngsdorf. The Rüngsdorf outdoor pool was closed on Tuesday afternoon. The city has given technical problems as the reason.

The city had to close the outdoor pool in Rüngsdorf on Tuesday afternoon because the water treatment system stopped working. This was announced by Marcus Schmidt from the administration’s press office.

“The cause is not yet clear,” he said. It is therefore not clear when the pool can reopen. The GA has learned that several visitors to the pool were standing in front of closed doors on Tuesday.

The pool was built in 1930. Swimmers have the use of eight lanes in the 50-metre sports pool. There is a ten metre high diving tower, a water slide and a parent-child area with a “water mushroom.”
