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.

Not too expensive, very very very nice and very clean. The water is warm, the pools are big and you can choose between between quite a lot of beautiful activities. The upstairs part is the sauna without clothes and it's lovely and with a lot of inside and outside choices! It's overall very clean and the staff is very nice

There isn't a better place to relax and unwind! Also expect children as the Caracalla Therme are mostly non-nude and family friendly.

Really fun. The changing rooms are really clean. The pools are nice temperatures and the pools are big. There is a passageway to the outside pools so you don't get cold. You don't need to bring much stuff. The only essentials are a swimming costume and a towel. Overall I think this place is well worth a visit and the... More

Myself and four friends visited Caracalla and did a great deal in which breakfast was included in our four hour price. As such we arrived and were seated in the restaurant before being served a really nice continental breakfast - croissant, cold meats, cheese, jam, read, coffee juice etc. All very pleasant. We headed inside after breakfast and spent most... More

These bathes are great, although not too hot and you don't get the mineral feeling you do in other places. Very clean and efficient. Bring your own towel. Otherwise all you need is there.

So initially when coming to Baden-Baden I truly had no idea that it was a spa destination. Upon checking in I quickly realized. I am a spa junkie in general and this was truly a different experience then I had ever done, I'm sure some of you are more familiar with European spas then I. Upon arrival I learned the... More

This is seriously one of the most amazing themal baths I have ever been to. Remember to bring your bathing suits and towels. They don't let you in without those and buying any of that stuff there is super expensive. That said, the entrance is cheap 15 euros or so for 2 hours. You change into your bathing suit and... More
