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.

This is seriously one of the most amazing themal baths I have ever been to. Remember to bring your bathing suits and towels. They don't let you in without those and buying any of that stuff there is super expensive. That said, the entrance is cheap 15 euros or so for 2 hours. You change into your bathing suit and... More

I came at 3 pm, and bought 2 hour relax for 15 Euro. It worths the experience. I love the outside pool most, at 3 degree Censius you can still feel well in the warm water. I did not try the second floor, the naked sauna, as no one there told me what to do, and rent me a towel... More

The modern building is clean and efficiently run. The lower level offers warm pools to swim in which extends to an outside pool with water features. There are sauna cabins and a good eatery. The upstairs is for those who prefer naturism and is mixed and works very well. Good selection of massage therapies offered too but you should book... More

Although the saunas and pools are nice, there is a limited number of showers and limited number of places to sit/relax consider the number of people visiting. Lack of organization and lack of thoughtfulness behind the setup (only 2 cold water basins out of a 60-people sauna), the showers outdoors not working in the winter because afraid water would freeze...

The spa is split into two areas, both covered by the entrance ticket. On the ground floor are a series of pools, inside and out, plus a couple of saunas. This is family friendly space since everyone wears swimming costumes. We found it to be busy but ok, and good fun going outside in February. Upstairs is the main sauna... More

At Caracalla, either bring a towel or rent one, same with bathing suit. Entering the bath after the locker room, you are greeted by a large steaming indoor/outdoor pool with whirly jets and timed waterfalls. There are lots of children and families so it has a bit of a water-park feel. I brought my white towel from the hotel and... More
