Welcome to

Zwemschool Pardoes

Since 1995, Swimming School Pardoes has shined as a beautiful, pragmatic, loving swimming school in Amsterdam.

Nestled on the edge of the Vondelpark, we have cherished the joy of swimming lessons in the warm READE swimming pool at Overtoom 283 for more than 28 years.

At Pardoes Swimming School, children immerse themselves in a literal warm bath! With water at 32 degrees, a depth of 140 cm and trusted swimming teachers, we create an oasis of peace, safety and relaxation.

Feel free to join our Swimming school
