Welcome to the Sports and Water Park of the H2O

Athletes, swimmers, pool lovers, action fans and wellness enthusiasts - all of them are here in their element. Please have a look at the wide range of sports and leisure facilities of the H2O Herford here.


At the H2O, adventurers slide down the Thunderbird towards Tabokiri Island. The exciting flight and underwater travel is 110 metres long and there are some special highlights involved: the bathers are swept away through thunderstorms, meet mean sharks on their way and are amazed about amazing underwater worlds up to the end of the trip. Upon arrival, there is not much time to take a deep breath – the next travel is on: in every slide expedition, the visitors dive off into a different world and discover the water slide in a new way over and over again! Three scenarios may be chosen by the traveller - the underwater adventure “Deep Sea”, a flight above the mountains in the “Blizzard” and a trip through a dark hole into “Space”.

Tabokiri - The jungle island for children

H2O Herford has lots to offer for kids: as well as two spectacular water slides and a whitewater channel, there’s also the lure of Tabokiri jungle island.

Tabokiri – the Caribbean World of Experiences

This unique adventure area consists of 400 sq m of jungle with water slides, a diving grotto, an old wooden sailing ship, a temple with a waterfall, water cannons and lots of other jungle attractions. TABOKIRI is a little island in the Caribbean. The island is covered with a huge number of palm trees and an almost impenetrable jungle with a small fresh-water river flowing through it. A grotto is partly concealed by a rushing waterfall.

The treasure of Tabokiri Bay

They say there’s buried treasure in Tabokiri Bay. There are also lots of strange animals and plants to look at. You can explore an old temple, and watch all sorts of exotic fish in a diving grotto. There are several little lakes, a waterfall and various other tropical attractions, as well as lots of fun puzzles to try and secrets to discover.

Karlos Strand

Those who are still too small for a day in the jungle can splash about with their parents in the separate children's area. This area has recently been rebuilt and a brand new water playground has been created. In this area, the little ones experience how much fun water can be while playing with numerous water toys and attractions in the safe shallow pool.
