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.

A great way to relax . A 2 hour entry flies by trying the different pools and inhalation rooms. Beware you need to bring a towel otherwise the rental is an additional 6 euros and the red light therapy leaves a tan. Wonderful indoor outdoor experience and you get to keep your swimsuit on.

I read amazing reviews of this spa and was very much expecting a magical experience. The pools themselves are nice and the experience was pleasant but I found it all very confusing and this overshadowed my whole impression. Simply getting a towel was a difficult ordeal! Their were lots of families and children, but that was expected. I would like... More

Caracalla is a very good place but if you like it quiet avoid summer when the city is almost hard to recognize. Ask at the reception of your hotel for a voucher for an extra hour and also if they sell it too - it's one euro cheaper. Yes, not much but why not? :) Be aware that they close... More

After traveling for two weeks around Germany it was nice to stop in Baden-Baden for some relaxation. This place is very much like a public pool in the US but has all the heated pools, saunas, and other spa-ish stuff to make it fun and different. We really enjoyed the jets in the large inside pool. They are the strongest... More

The baths at Caracalla were interesting without being wonderful. My personal favourite was the brine inhalation room. However, being peak tourist season it was extremely crowded with a lot of children around including talking loudly in the steam rooms etc (their parents not seeming to care about all the signage requesting quiet...). If you want the quiet and restful bathing... More

If you wish to relax and enjoy from s unique place filled with thermal water and pools, this is the best place in town, it's also good for families with kids from 7 years old and more. Don't forget to bring a towel, it is not given as part of the entrance fees.

Caracalla Therme are very good! Excellent massage in the swimming pool inside the first thermal baths! At the edges of the pool you will get different power jet and at different levels, it allows you to massage different parts of the body. I visit various hot springs in different places, and I can confidently say that this place is one... More

Looking forward to trying this out, but having read some of the reviews I was dubious as to how nice it would actually be. Having visited a ' natural' spa pool previously the pools here looked no different from a public chlorinated swimming pool and quite hectic. Not somewhere I would go to relax or very appealing. Maybe it's different... More
