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.

We got 3 hours Friedrichsbad Therme tickets for free, unfortunately kids are not allowed to swim there. Luckily, we could exchange it into Caracalla Therme tickets where kids above 7 years old are allowed to swim too. Was a wonderful time to swim 2,5 hours out there. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the old history of the famous Caracalla. I... More

Too loud. Too drafty. Too busy. Not enough loungers. Little personal space. One in one out by 2pm. God knows what it's like in the Summer. Way better options elsewhere.

We spent only 3 hours, enough to realize how special Caracalla Therme is. Amazing atmosphere, and extremely relaxing. Outside pool swimming from inside on the evening was an outstanding experience. Highly recommended.

If you plan to go to Baden-Baden, plan at least 4 hours to spend here. After a couple hours in the pool area with my two teens, the wife and I 'abandoned' them and ascended the spiral staircase to the Sauna area, where swimsuits are verboten! (Forbidden). You must be nude. Wy wife is South American and was initially very... More

We spent 4 hours at the spa and followed the advice on the website about trying the sauna experience and followed it with the cold shower and warm up foot bath. Spent some time in the relaxing blue room (nude) which was cool, then spent the rest of the day down in the hot thermal baths (bathing suits) and relaxing... More

Our hotel was nice and close, which made this just a wonderful ending to our 6 week trip. There are several pools, both in and out. The locker rooms are clean and modern, with beautiful showers and everything you need to relax. We did not get a chance to enjoy the various saunas, the Roman spa, the cold pool or... More

Lot's and lot's of different pools, saunas and hot tubs to try out. So much it took us the full 3 hours just to try everything. It was busy with kids at first... More

It was crazy busy as between Christmas and New Year but still had a great time. Loved the outdoor pools, crazy river, hot tubs and the huge choice of other stuff, saunas, steam, cold pools etc. Had a fantastic couples massage too. Will return, sure it's even better when it is not so busy.

We enjoyed our time at the Caracalla therme! There were a lot of things to do, different inside baths, different outside baths, saunas, steam-rooms and lying and seating areas. The price was also acceptable. It was a very nice atmosphere, a restaurant inside and outside the bathing-area. If you have a hotel guest-card you get an extra hour bathing-time for... More

Having enjoyed the old spa the previous day we went to the Caracalla and came away thinking it to be rather average. First unlike the old spa the numbers of people are much less controlled so it can be crowded. Various indoor and outdoor pools complimented by various steam rooms etc make up the Caracalla. Anyone who has been to... More
