Owner description: 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.

Ground floor with, first floor without clothes... but this place is more than that. Nice swimming pools, including an external hot one (was -1C when i was there) and many places to relax. On the first floor there are some saunas and somehow you fell comfortable to wear just the towel

We went to both the Roman-Irish baths and Caracalla and much preferred Caracalla. Our favorite part of the experience we discovered close to the end of our three-hour time there. Upstairs, in the back is a very large sauna room. There is a "sauna master" who comes in and pours some aromatherapy on the rocks and then fans everyone. It... More

You need to bring your own towel/ bathrobe and flip-flops. I really enjoyed the outdoors pool. the main area is full of swimming pools, some outdoors. The second floor is an area only for adults with saunas and steam rooms where people must be naked. You can pay by hour and if you decide to stay longer they will charge... More

We had a wonderful experience at Caracalla Therme. Be sure to be brave enough to indulge in the saunas. Fully naked but you quickly become used to it. The staff explain everything. We even had the luck to experience a. Sauna 'show' where one of the staff came in and fanned us all. Highly recommended.

The Caracalla spa is one of two in Baden Baden. This one requires swim suits when you enter the ground level pools. This is where kids can hang out. There are several temperatures from just warm to hot and lots of jets for massaging. I especially liked the over the head tubes that seem to throw water on your shoulders... More

First of all, i did not try massage. So the review about the facility in general. Visited in Feb. Temp -4 outside. It is like a water heaven. There are several pools from 8 to 38 degrees. After Sauna, the 8 feels great but you may also test 38 if you can stand. You can swim under the water and... More

The place was great and as described un the booklets and website. However, it was not really clean as it supposed to be. Staff were not welcoming and supportive. There were no free towels nor slupperies which I assumed they will be served like any other spa. It is good place to visit but you need to be prepared.

Great value relaxing day out. Have returned time and again to the Caracalla over the last 8 years. Very clean pools. Child friendly from 7 up which is great. My 11 year old looks forward to it more then we do! Good selection of saunas upstairs including a solarium which is only 59 degrees which is great if you're a... More

This is like a water park, without the super long lines of screaming kids. There are multiple pools- large, small, hot, cool, indoors, outdoors. Easy to spend a lot of time here.
