the building is beautiful and historic but there's not much attraction in seeing the building if there's no water to drink. Apparently, due to a new EU health regulation, either the Pump Room has to declare itself as a medical service or stop serving the water, so they're no longer serving water.

interesting to wander around in the arcades and enjoying the kitsch frescos on the wall, fresh when it´s hot.

We were told by our hotel that guided city tours are available in English. The guide then told us she could do it in English, but opted to do it in German because there weren't enough English speakers. Thanks a lot. We then asked at the Trinkhalle tourist info, when an English tour would be held. Snootily delivered answer: Never,... More

This is a gorgeous old building. The reason I only gave it a 3/5 is because there isn't much to do here. You can walk here from the city center and spend maybe 15 minutes looking at the building. The tourist information desk was very nice and helpful. There was a drinking fountain which wasn't working. So worth a quick... More

The building is very photogenic and looks great when illuminated with coloured lights in the evening. We arrived at noon on a Sunday and although the building was open, the tourist info centre was closed and the place looked very dark and dingy with minimal lighting. The spa water fountain was closed due to hygiene reasons so there was little... More

I know they have to repair and renovate but it was unfortunate that during our stay some of the paintings were hidden - however the bits we could see were really impressive and grand. The 'free water' was out of order too, until October - my poor timing but still a worthwhile trip

This place has a lovely Old-World atmosphere with an outdoor terrace surrounded by a garden and large lawn. Excellent wines and coffees, as well as small snacks. Free international newspapers to enjoy and plush, leather chairs and couches. There is also a bar and a few tall tables with stools. Service is excellent, attentive and unobtrusive. My only quibble is... More

Not much to see here and while I was there the famous 'water' was not running!! Bar overlooking gardens, but lacking any atmosphere.

Enter this gorgeous cafe and step back in time with all the comforts and service of today. Wonderful coffee and cake, free English newspapers to read in very relaxing atmosphere either indoors or in their beautiful garden. Staff are very friendly and obliging.
