If you need to relax and unwind this is the place to do it! There are number of saunas at different temperatures and heated thermal pools too. Decorated in a Japanese/zen style, Neptunebad is just lovely! The restaurant is also very good and reasonably priced. NOTE:: This is a MIXED NUDE sauna/spa. You must be nude in the saunas and...

I guess I tried most sauna/spa places in Cologne and this is by far my favourite. It might not be the cheapest but one gets a good value for the money. The service is very friendly and helpful and there is a good choice of different types of saunas and pool. I just love that warm pool with the underwater... More

First experience in these hot springs - amazing, hot, full of beautiful decorations and special energy. Special performances with the mint oil, salt... Great swimming pools. I do recommend. In between they serve fruits and tea.

After climbing the Cathedral steps, we decided a nice hot jacuzzi and sauna would be nice. The front desk was very friendly and offered us towels for rent. We tried the Aufgass sauna and the chocolate rub in the steam room. Both are free with admission and well worth it. The age group was 20-50 year olds with women the... More

I came to Neptunbad with my boyfriend after reading positive reviews on this site. The woman at the front desk spoke perfect English, nearly forgetting to mention that it is FKK (bathing suit forbidden). Luckily, this is one of the reasons we came in the first place... The atmosphere is amazing, very relaxing. There are many indoor and outdoor saunas... More

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
