4 hours of relaxation and luxury. My husband and I enjoyed our time here to unwind and relax. This was truly an amazing couples experience. Not for the shy due to being all nude. But, when in Germany, do as the Germans do...

The bad cannot be seen without paying for it. the surroundings are open and should be visited, it is a totally different feel in this city, different from most of the other places and sights.

The ruins are next to the Friedrichsbad spa. They are only open a couple of hours every day. So if you are in the area, it is a decent break. But I would not go out of my way to see the ruins. Very small area. The audio guide helps, but still not worth a trip to see.

For anyone who has seen the remains of ancient baths in Rome (Caracalla, etc.), or at any major Roman site, the Roman baths at Baden-Baden are of minor interest. But the walk up to them and the ruins themselves make a pleasant way of passing a couple of hours.

The ruins itself are nice, but what 's on top is execellent: The Friedrichsbad. Bath like the Romans, if you take the whole package with soap/brush and massage it's like a visit to the sauna and hammam combined. 4 hrs later you feel envigorated ! Go on mixed days when male/females bathe together. Of course everybody is in the nude... More

The Roman Bath ruins are located adjacent and underneath the two active spas in Baden-Baden. the price of admission includes a head seat with narration on the various features of the roman bath ruins. These ruins provide you with a glimpse of how advanced and clever the Romans were in terms of heating water, and operating a bath for men... More

This small, tucked away piece of ruin had got me interested even before I arrived in Baden - Baden; so I went to this place a little before its opening time. But of course, had lots to look at and read on the panels describing the roman baths even without paying a penny. When the place was finally opened on... More

We weren't able to get inside for a tour but did spent some time to photograph the ruins. From here we headed to the Amphitheater.

The Roman bath ruins are quite well preserved, particularly the underground heating system. There is a short explanatory film at the beginning, which is also quite good. The audiotour is (sadly) very dull and seems to drain any interest or excitement from the ruins. Never mind, it is only a couple of euros to get in, so it is still... More
