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.

If visiting Baden Baden this is a visit you must make. For best results you need 3 hours as your visit is timed from moment you walk in to moment you walk out. This is an expensive ( €18.00 per person for 3 hours). Place to visit but well worth the money. Three separate main pools two outside with hot... More

Overall a relaxing few hours, but very average compared to Rupertus Thermen we have visited many times. Nice steam room. WEAK POINTS: - Entrance expensive with no discounts for children. - Food expensive and underwhelming - Children must be age 7 and over to enter, certainly they could let younger ones in during certain time periods

One of the largest and busiest therme baths I have visited. But it's well managed with typical German efficency and very nice. Stays open late which is added benefit.

Enjoyed a 3 hour pass in the upstairs spa, sauna and whirlpool. Didn't use the downstairs pool as we forgot our swimsuits, but no loss, there were too many people and kids as it was Saturday and schools were closed.

My wife and I spent four hours in the company of nude strangers at this top flight facility. We tried six different saunas dry, foggy, Finnish. It was a terrific relaxing day.

We went to Caracalla because we heard the other one was a nudist bath and we weren't really up for that. It is a modern facility and is very organized and clean. The staff were helpful. The wave pool was very fun but the random and intense pashing from the visitors was quite weird

We visited this place with our children and it was relaxing for the entire family. If your children are well-behaved and quiet, then you will enjoy this place. The hot outdoor spring/pool was tranquil but it does wear you out if you sit there too long. This place was very clean and the staff was WONDERFUL!! Very helpful. The food... More
