Treading water and doing something for your health – this option has been available for 32 years at the dr.-walter-langer-strabe between ketschendorf and seidmannsdorf. In 1988, the kneipp basin was put into operation on the walking and biking path between the two parts of the city, but from the beginning, it became apparent that the location was not ideal. During heavy rains, soil is regularly spooled onto the facility and into the pool from a high, sloping field. Only in 2019 did a huge load of sludge have to be removed again.
The kneipp- und naturheilverein coburg is responsible for keeping the pool clean. This has been contractually agreed with the city. But the association is not in a position to do this, says its chairwoman dorothea schaal. That’s why there has long been a desire for a better location.
