Over an area of 4000 m², with its bathing and sauna areas, the Caracalla Spa offers pure enjoyment in healing thermal water for all those seeking relaxation. An indoor and two outdoor pools with temperatures from 30-34°C are the central elements of the bathing area. Water falls, water domes, massage jets, whirlpools and a flow channel make your stay into a water experience. The hot and cold water grottos (38 and 18°C) stimulate the circulation and strengthen the immune system. In the year 2000, this area was expanded with a Roman scented steam bath. Three years later there also came a brine inhalation room, in which guests could also relax outside the tubs. Whoever is looking for even more relaxation can find this in the massage room inside the bathing area. Here you can be spoilt by all the facets of this art.The sauna area of the Caracalla Spa has completely changed over the last 25 years. Roman mosaics and columns and also numerous museum pieces and antiques give the spa its Roman touches and let you experience the bathing culture of the times of Emperor Caracalla. Inside the sauna, guests can choose from seven difference offers – from the Finnish sauna to the unique glass steam bath. Relaxation is possible between every sauna visit. The Blue Space senses room brings together wellbeing and art and provides a completely new feeling of mental regeneration. The absolute quiet and the natural atmosphere of the green relaxation room ensures total relaxation. If these possibilities are not enough for you, since the end of 2003 there is also the sauna outdoor area. In the picturesque garden of the new castle of Baden-Baden, you can experience rustic bathing enjoyment in the log cabin sauna made of pine wood. The wood of the Finnish polar pine has a unique scent and makes the sauna into an unforgettable natural experience. The pristine atmosphere in the “Fire Sauna” and the “Wood Sauna” also ensures this. In 2009 the modern WellnessLounge opened its doors. Inside the building of Caracalla Spa guests will be offered nine wellness and cosmetic treatment rooms named after Roman gods. Specific rooms are provided for all the treatments, which include massages, body packages and beauty programmes. The wellness lounge offers a range of new possibilities and a whole host of new wellness trends including soap massages in a wet room, either alone in a beautiful massage room with overhead lighting or in twos in a twin massage room. The luxury spa consists of a bright room with windows in the ceiling and two high-quality single-piece bathtubs. Couples can also experience wellness together and be looked after in an individual manner. The wellness lounge also has a wellness bar and a wonderful rest area with an outdoor sun terrace.

Overall not impressed. Felt more like a public pool than a spa. Definitely don't waste your money on any spa treatments. We had a facial and a massage, which wasn't great. Might be nice place to go if you are on holiday with your family. If you want to really relax go to the Friedrichsbad instead.

The Caracalla Therme spa is perfect if you're in need of relaxation! There are many different types of pools, all varying in temperature. The upstairs area offers a vast range of sauna, steam and other relaxation methods. However this area is for people who have the courage to go without swimsuits! You will not be disappointed!

Take your own towels, and thongs/flip flops if you want (most people did). We were thankful for the swimwear, many bodies of all shapes and sizes! It was quite crowded compared to what we are used to in Australia, but definitely relaxing. Two hours was plenty of time

Very relaxing and therapeutic. There was a wide selection of pools at varying temperatures and size. An aromatherapy humidity room was wonderful, but SO hot! It was a very warm day, but we really enjoyed the outdoor pools with the 'river' and various water features. There is food and drinks available, but not alcohol. We did not go upstairs to... More

We just had to try the spa when in Baden-Baden. Initially wanted to try Friedrichsbad as it was more authentic but we missed the day for mixed bathing, however we still loved the experience in the more modern Caracalla. We told the lady at the desk it was our first visit and she was brilliant explaining everything. The main part... More

This is a nice way to spend a relaxing afternoon. There are plenty of different pools and steam rooms to visit and keep you occupied. We both had a classic massage, which while nice, wasn't the best we've had yet was the most expensive we've paid for. The whole place might be a little overpriced for what it is, but... More

We had a great time in Caracalla Therme. Everything works. Seems pretty clean, and not too crowded. Arrived around 10:30/11:00 and the pool was almost empty. After 1 hour the place started to get busier, but not in an annoying way. Great pools and saunas. Definitely would go back!

We had a fantastic experience in the Caracalla spa and thoroughly enjoyed our experience there! Although we did not go into the sauna area we enjoyed everything else that the spa had to offer including a tasty lunch. There are numerous pools to enjoy and relax in and the facilities are excellent

enjoyed the day greatly, very reasonable price and got a free hour as we were staying at an apartment in Baden Baden and got a card with money off attractions. Staff very friendly and helpful, had no problems with security as lockers are provided. Bit too hot in the naked sauna upstairs when a staff member came in and created... More
