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.

Very nice place, especially in winter. It`s snowing hard but you`re swimming in the open air in hot water.

This was the last day of our week in Germany and we decided to treat ourselves to the Caracalla Spa where they had a thermal pool and saunas. We arrived at the Caracalla and were told that the main pool was out of action and they directed us next door where we ended up at the Fredrichsbad which is a... More

My wife and I went to the spa in December during our visit to the Christmas market. It was a great place to relax. There were several pool options and several different temperatures. The steam room and the outdoor pools were our favorite. The heated outdoor pools were really fun especially since it was so cold outside. I'd recommend the... More

Modern spas where to go with the whole family. Nice atmosphere and relaxing massages. My kids really enjoyed the outside where they could mix the heat of the water and the cold outside temperature

Lots of facilities in both bathing and sauna areas, but some of them were not available to enjoy because of too many people inside.

Pros: Large facility, very clean despite number of guests and heat/humidity. Both open and closed shower stalls for the more modest. Kid friendly pool temperatures, tolerant of some noise and splashing, lots of room. Outdoor pools are pretty with a view of a small chapel. Cons: This is not a zen or relaxing place. Lines to get in and large... More

Much better then I imagined. The outside pools are great, especially in contrast with snow all around. The bigger one has a current, it is a bit cooler but has 2 jacuzzi pools with hot water. Inside i most enjoyed the hit and cold pools. There are many different saunas upstairs, I most enjoyed the ones outside, in log cabins.... More

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
