First of all the place is so beautiful and so clean. There are 18 different experiences: hot, cold, warm mineral water pools, saunas, steam, massages, and finally a sleeping room where you are wrapped up in a warm blanket after the 18 steps. The staff is helpful but not intrusive. this is the spa experience of a lifetime.

Is there any way to have a rating worse than 1? This was THE most terrible sauna experience of my life. Where do I start... First, the place was filthy! In a place that has constant moisture, deliberate heat, hundreds of people, you have got to keep it clean. It almost seemed as if the lack of cleanliness was intentional... More

My husband and I enjoyed our experience at Friedrichsbad. We went on a day when men and women can go together. But many Americans aren't too fond of co-ed nudity...so pay attention to what day you go. This bath experience is set up with a series of stations. You start warm, then get hot, then cool down until super cold,... More

This was a much needed three hours of relaxation during a ten day tour of Christmas Markets in Germany and France 2013. My only regret was that we only made Baden-Baden a day trip. Yes you are nude but so is everyone else. If you can get past the nakedness then relax and enjoy. I did not originally pay for... More

Visiting the Friedrichsbad with a friend was a great relaxing experience. Being European I am used to nudity in Saunas and Thermal Baths and we had a bit of a giggle imagining the faces of our anglo-saxan friends when entering this "textile free" establishment for the first time. It is very relaxing but we were lucky on a quiet Monday... More

Beautiful building with lots of history, amazing service, great experience. I wish I lived closer so I could get a VIP chip and go every day. Everything was so wonderful. Even if you're shy, you will get comfortable. You are given a sheet to lay on most of the time and many people wrapped it around their bodies to move... More

I love these baths and having been there in high season, I wanted to write about low season. Since the baths are experienced naked and often with males and females together, I wanted to just give a few tips if you go in low season. I went on a night in January and there were not too many staff present.... More

Bah! My husband and I have twin 16month olds so he sent me on my own journey of the baths while he stayed with the kids as my Valentine's Day gift. In other words, I knew NOTHING about the baths. He did mention nudity but being the American that I am I truly envisioned momentary skivvies en route to the... More

So, yes, you are naked. For the entire experience. We went during the mixed, and I have to say although I thought I be more embarrassed with men around, I was glad my fiancé was with me. It is a kind of live and let live (naked) atmosphere. In other words, get over yourself and do it! No one, I... More

Back in 2007, my wife celebrated our 25th wedding Anniversary at this bath house. Obviously we Americans have a greater insecurity about nudity and our bodies than Europeans. The experience is well worth going out of your way to live the "good life".
