Moving to Aachen Germany this summer. Not having luck yet finding a pool or master's group for training. During last summer's visit the best I could do was swim in a nice pool with one lane line for swim lessons and adults all leisurely swimming head's up breatstroke. Any info would be greatly appreciated as finally have time to really train.

Did you check out any of the six listings for pools in Aachen, Germany at www.swimmersguide.com?

Go here:

http://schwimmen.dsv.de/Modules/Clubs/Search.aspx?Lang=de-DE

Under 'stadt' put 'Aachen' and hit 'suche'

It should give you 8 clubs in Aachen. Highlight one and hit the little spinning world next to 'internet' to get the club website. I know some, if not all, of the clubs in Aachen have a masters group.

Where I live in Germany, it is almost impossible to get a lane without being a member of a club. But I bet if you talked to a particular club, they might let you practice with them without becomming a member, at least temporarily.

Best of luck, and if you get near Stuttgart, come swim with us:

Thank you so much for the info. This is just the kind of site I needed. I will be in touch with the different programs. It would be good for me to become a member to meet people and to train harder than I do by myself.
