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. « less

My daughter commented that one must be 14 and be completely naked to sit in the saunas on the upper level. I said she can sauna anywhere but can't get hot... More

Even my spa averse husband found a lot to enjoy here, as one can wear a swimsuit in most areas (only a few of the saunas were au naturel) & one of the best massages I've ever had despite the language barrier. Bring your own towels & toiletries (they did have soap dispensers in the shower)

My husband and I seem to be becoming spa goers... this is the second therme we've been to in Germany and we loved it! If we had more time, we would have purchased more hours at the thermal baths. We purchased 2 hours of time, and got 1 free hour because the hotel gave us a complementary "green card" which... More

I have been going to Caracalla for 20-odd years, and it has never been so horrible as it was today - far too many people, too many children, and really not very clean, especially the main indoor pool and the toilets (do people really have to throw loo-roll, used, on the floor?

The Caracalla Baths in the middle of the old city of Baden-Baden contain numerous pools, hot, warm and cold, with whirlpools and jacuzzis, saunas and aromatic steam bath. I came twice with my wife while on vacation in the Black Forest.
