Over an area of 4000 m², with its bathing and sauna areas, the Caracalla Spa offers pure enjoyment in healing thermal water for all those seeking relaxation. An indoor and two outdoor pools with temperatures from 30-34°C are the central elements of the bathing area. Water falls, water domes, massage jets, whirlpools and a flow channel make your stay into a water experience. The hot and cold water grottos (38 and 18°C) stimulate the circulation and strengthen the immune system. In the year 2000, this area was expanded with a Roman scented steam bath. Three years later there also came a brine inhalation room, in which guests could also relax outside the tubs. Whoever is looking for even more relaxation can find this in the massage room inside the bathing area. Here you can be spoilt by all the facets of this art.The sauna area of the Caracalla Spa has completely changed over the last 25 years. Roman mosaics and columns and also numerous museum pieces and antiques give the spa its Roman touches and let you experience the bathing culture of the times of Emperor Caracalla. Inside the sauna, guests can choose from seven difference offers – from the Finnish sauna to the unique glass steam bath. Relaxation is possible between every sauna visit. The Blue Space senses room brings together wellbeing and art and provides a completely new feeling of mental regeneration. The absolute quiet and the natural atmosphere of the green relaxation room ensures total relaxation. If these possibilities are not enough for you, since the end of 2003 there is also the sauna outdoor area. In the picturesque garden of the new castle of Baden-Baden, you can experience rustic bathing enjoyment in the log cabin sauna made of pine wood. The wood of the Finnish polar pine has a unique scent and makes the sauna into an unforgettable natural experience. The pristine atmosphere in the “Fire Sauna” and the “Wood Sauna” also ensures this. In 2009 the modern WellnessLounge opened its doors. Inside the building of Caracalla Spa guests will be offered nine wellness and cosmetic treatment rooms named after Roman gods. Specific rooms are provided for all the treatments, which include massages, body packages and beauty programmes. The wellness lounge offers a range of new possibilities and a whole host of new wellness trends including soap massages in a wet room, either alone in a beautiful massage room with overhead lighting or in twos in a twin massage room. The luxury spa consists of a bright room with windows in the ceiling and two high-quality single-piece bathtubs. Couples can also experience wellness together and be looked after in an individual manner. The wellness lounge also has a wellness bar and a wonderful rest area with an outdoor sun terrace.

On a visit to Baden-Baden we visited with the children the baths. Quite organised place. Staff could be more attentive. Very clean. The swimming pools both indoors and outdoors very good. Sauna and hamam on the upper floor very good but unsuitable for young children. Many naked old people in there. I would recommend a visit there.

Great spa with very good spa pools. But you need to remember to brig our own towel. Otherwise you will get hit with 6€ for rental. But good clothed and naked areas too.

We have just spent a week in Baden Baden. Our wonderful apartment was about ten minutes walk from Caracalla Therme. Our week was full of sun and very hot, and on returning from our walks and excursions, we would arrive at our lodgings in the afternoon quite tired to say the least. However after resting for a while at our... More

A lovely lovely spa in Baden Baden. There are plenty of heated pools and steam rooms downstairs. We ventured upstairs to the Sauna (as a couple) and it was completely fine - everyone comfortable. Wear a towel if you are so inclined (we weren't). Saunas were fantastic and worth the money alone.

Even though the choice of steam rooms is limited this is still a very good spa at a great rate. The interior and exterior are very neat covered in white marble. A large choice of pools, heat-light relaxation, but only one steam and one inhalation room. No admittance for children under 7, which can be good or bad depending how... More

We were disappointed that this was closed for refurbishment during our visit to Baden-Baden, as the only alternative was the naked spa down the road, a step too far for us prudish Scots!

There are many great spas in Germany and this one is up there. It has a lovely ambience and every time we have been here we have enjoyed it....so much so we are going to return tomorrow. It's a very different experience to the naked spa next door but one not to be missed. Top tip - bring your own... More
