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.

After doing five or six days of touring we were able to spend a couple of hours in this awesome spa. It's a little unusual getting changed and locking up your clothes and valuables but it is typically German. The indoor part has a hot and a cold pool plus several other warm pools to relax in. There are also... More

Great afternoon relaxing in the pools. The inside pool has lots of space and is in a lovely setting. The outside pool is also large with fountains and a garden setting. Easy to find, well maintained and clean.

Be very careful. My wife and I visited this spa and were initially impressed by the staff and spa then everything went really wrong We went into the main pool for 20 minutes and my wife's shirt was stolen right off the chaise lounges we had picked out. We let management know and told us they are not responsible and... More

To 'take the waters' is a must see activity in Baden Baden and this spa is quite special. Just about every spa feature is to hand and the tour round the main pool and the integrated jacuzzi areas to experience water massage on every part of your body is worth doing. The upstairs 'no clothes' sauna areas are extensive with... More

I visit a lot of spas in different parts of the world, but nothing beats Caracalla. The bathing experience is unique, the massages are great and the food is superb too. It is worth visiting Baden Baden if only to experience Caracalla. Tip: Remember to book the massage in advance of your visit, since the massage slots fill up really... More

Our vacation took us to this day spa. A truly heavenly place. Clean, large, easy to understand. The salt aroma room was interesting but the steam room with the lemon verbena was amazing. We spent three or four sessions there. Then off to the thermal pools. Experience them all. THe temperatures are mild with one that was closer to hot,... More

My husband and I enjoyed our day outing to the Caracalla Therme Spa. Here are a few details from my experience: - Parking lot location was slightly challenging to find. More directional signage would have been helpful. - 15 euro for two hours of spa enjoyment plus an additional hour free since we had a city visitors card (received card... More

Big variety of spa opportunities -- everybody can find something suitable! Saunas, swimming pools with warm and hot miracle water, various types of water falls - or you can just seat on stone chair covered with water outside and enjoy the sunlight. Though saunas are not very hot..still so many people, it should be comfortable for everybody. However, for a... More
