The bathing culture is strong in Germany, but attractive offers are still lacking in many cities and municipalities. The investments of the municipalities are still too low to offer visitors modern equipment or multifunctional concepts.

In an interview, Dr. Stefan Kannewischer, President of the International Association for Sports and Leisure Facilities (IAKS), comments on this and points out possible solutions.
