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've always heard that if you visit the Black Forest and Baden Baden you need to go to the spa. So today we went and couldn't have been more disappointed. This place is enormous, terribly hard to find, definitely not an exclusive venue, and if you're not local you have little chance of understanding what you are to do. Some... More

Lots to do, loads of pools, inside or outside. We went around 6pm before the sun set and we got to see the great colours of the sky from a hot pool! Great! Relaxing! we didn't book any treatments or the sauna, but we tried the main pools and steam room! Worth a visit! Great first experience with thermal waters!

I wish Finland would have a spa like this! Rather quiet and still lots to do. No kids yelling... My kind of a spa! Lots of saunas and pools to try, so recommended time would be around 3 hours to spend if you like saunas. Only minus was that they claimed to have a real Finnish sauna there (actually couple...

We chose here rather than the regimented (or seemingly so) approach of Friedrichsbad next door and we were very glad we did. Excellent facilities, very clean and thoroughly enjoyable. The only comment would be that the spiral stairs to the sauna area upstairs are difficult for people that struggle with movement so perhaps an elevator would be a great option.

The spa was easy walking distance from our hotel (Hotel Am Markt) & in a beautiful quiet area right next door to the Roman Spa. With the exception of the saunas upstairs, swim suits are worn in all pools and steam rooms. Our hotel provided towels but they can also be hired at the spa. We booked & paid for... More
