Caracalla--private changing rooms?

Would someone please describe the changing rooms and lockers at Caracalla Spa? Are they private or not? Thank you!

There are both individual cubicles and shelfs where you can leave your clothing. Don't forget to make a mental note of the locker box number, as it's not shown on the key.

Thanks so much for your help. Just to clarify, when changing clothes, is there a room for privacy or it it like a typical locker room where everyone is getting dressed/undressed? Are there toilets in the changing area?

There is room for privacy, like #1 wrote little cubicles, there should be toilets also.

Yes, there are also toilets and showers. The cubicles are lockable.

You walk in through the turnstile and enter a passage with many many doors on both sides. Each door leads into a small lockable cubicle that is meant for one person to change in. The cubicle has a second door on the opposite side, through this door you reach the area with the lockers and then the showers and the pool area. Anything beyond the cubicles is "barefoot" area, i. e. no street shoes, of course you can wear clean slippers or flipflops if you want to.

The locker keys do have tags with the numbers, by the way. The key comes with a bracelet so you can tie it round your wrist and keep it with you all the time.

For your valuables, if you don't want to put them into the normal lockers but in a safer spot, there are small extra lockers a) next to the turnstile at the entrance and b) inside at the beginning of the pool area.

If you are concerned about privacy in the changing room, please be aware that many areas, esp. sauna areas, are required nude. You can be asked to leave if you don't remove your clothing. I have noticed that some people leave a towel or robe around them, but they must remove it in the sauna. There is also an "outdoor area", with small pool, which is nude. This is not true in the general swimming area, where bathing suits are worn. Areas where children go (swimming for example) are clothed.

If you are not used to this (most Americans are not used to it) it is usually rather OK, since all the other guests, obviously the Germans, are comfortable and usually ignore others, just enjoy their own relaxation.

You also can take children to the sauna area and some people do, at least a little older ones, toddlers don't like saunas, last time I went there were children approx. 8 years and above.
