This is an excellent sauna / thermal baths in what the Germans call the Irish-Roman tradition. There are various different pools and saunas and you can pay extra for additional services such as the dead sea pool (€5) or something that looked very interesting called a Serailbad (herbal bath), which we didn’t do but it looks amazing - you go...

My wife and I have visited here a few times and each time gets better. The main pool area and outside areas are great for relaxation and playing around in the whirlpools and water jets. Inside they have hot and cold soak pools and jaccuzzi's. The entire place from entry to exit is immaculate and cannot be faulted. There is... More

I took my twin 11 yr old girls here for a relaxing few hours and a massage. We all REALLY enjoyed our messages. They even let one of my girls keep her bikini top on cuz she is a little shy. The spa area is wonderful. You can easily enjoy a half a day here, but being that I was... More

First things first. Germans are known for early "Feierabend" times. This place is opened until 11pm. Pluspunkt for that. I loved the fact that both inside and outside water temperature were just perfect. Keep in mind it's rather an therapeutic place so be kind, patient and behave accordingly. The relaxing area outside is beautiful, especially the hammock and massage zone... More

I came here yet again for my first-ever experience of the Lange Saunanacht XXL (a special all-night programme) and boy, was it worth it! For a fairly modest fee on top of the entrance price, you get access to their pools, saunas and steam rooms all night long, plus a special programme of Aufguesse and relaxation sessions and a delicious...

Great way to spend a rainy day in Cologne. The price for a couple of hours is quite reasonable, and soaking in the warm water was so relaxing!

A wonderful indoor and outdoor pool complex with saunas and steam rooms. We went on a very hot and sunny day so didn't use the saunas or steam rooms. We did a mixture of swimming, floating and sunbathing. It was all lovely and didn't seem too busy. A bit more nudity than we are used to in scotland but didn't... More

When the Germans do something, they do it properly. This 'retreat' (within 10 minutes walking distance from the Dom Messe railstation), is well worth a visit. Swimming pools, outside relax areas, cafe areas, jacuzzis and various different saunas are on offer. You must wear your bathing costume in the pool area, but none are allowed in the saunas or steam... More

Wow, this place is amazing and so affordable. It has 2 pools, indoor and outdoor. The outdoor pool has jets and a whirlpool. There are plenty of chairs for you to sit and relax, a restaurant and Spa (booking recommended). The place has steam rooms and saunas where you can choose to go nude or wrap up in a towel.... More
