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. « less

If you are looking to do any treatments book in advance as they get full very fast. We were there for 3 days and couldn't get a treatment.

After having been to Friedrichsbad a number if times, I was expecting a bit more. This was a decent experience and is at least a thermal bath that you can enjoy with your family, which is who I would recommend this to. There is a restaurant inside which is nice. For couples or mature individuals, I would recommend Friedrichsbad. We... More

We stayed three hours but could have stayed more. There are towels to rent for 5 euros which is a little pricey. Bring your own if you can. The clever wrist band opens your locker and records any beverage and food purchases.

Sunlight streamed through walls of glass, glittering off of blue pools and waterfalls. After a depressing experience at Friedrichsbad the day before, Caracalla was a slice of heaven. We could wear as much or as little as we wanted, come and go from pool to pool to steam room and back at will. Best of all we could laugh and... More

One of the best and most beautiful spas I've been. We stayed for 3 hours, since in summer they give you an extra hour free, if you pay for two hours. In the end we enjoyed ourselves so much in the pools and whirlpools inside and outside and relaxing on the loungers under the sun, that we didn't have time... More

Liked the blue relaxation room but the rest of the spa is not special and a bit old. Been to better ones in Germany.

What a relaxing, amazing experience. Three friends and I drove 8 hours from Italy because we decided to go to the spa. We entered the complex late afternoon and made our way through the 17 steps..including two separate massages, steam, sauna, hot pools, cold pools, whirlpools, and then tea in a solarium followed by a nap wrapped up like a...

I liked everything I. These baths. The cleanliness, the service, the amenities the automation. In the showers there is a liquid soap for both body and hair. BUT you need to use a very good hair conditioner and a leave-in conditioner as the mineral water makes your hair VERY dry. I wish there were some drinking water dispensers as you... More
