From the moment you arrive, there is the decadence of a bygone era, beautifully tiled walls and dark wood reception desks. There are robes and slippers available to hire but I brought my own with me. The whole place, indoor and outdoor, has an extremely relaxed feel, nudity with no issues, and the saunas are so varied with an intense... More

I've been to saunas in Berlin, Munich and Nuremberg and Bamberg and loved everyone but the best ever was Neptunbad in Cologne. I was put off by the prices and some unfavourable reviews of Claudius Therme and I am so glad I went to Neptunbad instead. The sauna is part of a leisure centre and has the best facilities I've...

The Neptunbad is in a traditional-style building, somewhat far from Cologne center, as it takes two subway legs to reach it. It offers an "Asiatic sauna", a set of saunas around a pool with a small cascade, in a sort of Japanese-style decor. The "Historical sauna" offers a more traditional art-nouveau environment. The best part is its free air "Zen-garden",... More

I wanted to try a sauna in Cologne and was looking at Claudius Therme but was put off by all the extra charges, flip flop hire, bathrobe hire etc. Luckily I found Neptunbad and I can honestly say I had the most fantastic visit, despite being on my own. The site has a 3 storey spa area including outdoor section... More

We went to cologne for 2 days and visited the neptunbad as part of a break during a rainy day. It was really relaxing! 17 euro for 2 hours was great value for money. Bring your dressing gown as most people wear one and it is more convenient.

I was traveling alone on business and needed something to do on my last night before an early flight. I was a bit nervous since I didn't speak a word of German but the lady at the front desk was very nice and spoke very good English and was able to point me in the right direction. I was a... More

If you want to go where the Germans go to relax on a weekend or their free time, this is definitely one of the "insider" places! Neptunbad is a renovated beautiful spa with baths, pools and saunas to enjoy. The Germans bathe naked, so if you are not ready to try out their way, this might be too adventurous for... More

Keep it quiet. For two reasons: i) it is very peaceful and tranquil here, and silent relaxation is positively encouraged and ii) it’s never too busy, it’s pleasantly full most of the time. Neptunbad is a little out of the way in the suburb of Ehrenfeld but the adjacent station, Kornerstrasse, is served by two U-Bahn lines (3,4) and is... More

This centrally located sauna palace is in a monument. The sauna theme is zen. Beautifull and relaxing. Good atmosphere
