Again,I didn't find anything in Wohlen, just in Bremgarten- one pool was available only for kids and the other one was offering a private session, 40mins, 35chf. To be honest it doesn't make sense for me to travel from Wohlen to Bremgarten for 40mins for 35chf+train ticket. In 40mins I barely get used to the water and make some splashes, when will I learn to swim?

I think we need a bit more detail here. It depends a lot on how much you want to learn to swim.
The outdoor season has just ended in Bremgarten which should mean that after the summer closing and renovation etc. the indoor pool will be available more often.
You say 'one pool was only available for kids'. Does this mean you went to the public pool in Bremgarten and were not allowed to get into a learner pool? Was it not available for other swimmers?
What does a 'private session' mean? A private lesson, or a group lesson in a pool which was closed to the general public at the time? If you have a good teacher, in 40 minutes you should certainly do more than a few splashes. My record with a water-shy swimmer was a 25m swim in deep water after 6 lessons, each session 60 minutes. I had other swimmers too though, so he had to practice on his own for part of the time.
To shorten the time it takes to learn - get used to the water under the shower (at home), breathe out into a bowl of water, turn your head and breathe in - nice and rhythmically. Open your eyes in clear water. Do all the 'nasty' bits without wasting lesson time.
If you take lessons, repeat the stuff you learn between times if you can. If you cannot do it in water, practice the movements at home in front of a mirror! Practice the leg kick while you can see what your feet are doing.
There are a lot of ways of shortening the learning process. If you Google 'swim videos' there are quite a few sites with video clips which might help you to get a better idea of what you should be aiming for.
Good luck anyway.
