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.

This was my second visit to a thermal spa, after I had a not exactly pleasant experience in another country. I enjoyed every single minute of this visit. The water is so pleasant, the place so clean and quiet, and with the very practical lockers and entrance chips you don't have to worry about your belongings. 100% recommended!

This would be fantastic for couples or groups of friends. Modern and funky decor. Plenty of sunloungers and huge space in all the different pools. Lots of different sauna/steam/saline rooms to try. No smart phones allowed so don't forget a book as they wont let you read on your phone!

This is the first time we've experienced a thermal spa and it was fantastic. Although it appears expensive there is lots included. You have a wrist band on entry that allows you to securely lock your locker. You are then requested to shower before you enter the pool areas. The showers are individual or there is an area of two...

We have been visiting the Therme for over 10 years every couple of years. Unfortunately the atmosphere of the facility has become more like a public swimming pool rather than a spa. The water is no longer 100% thermal water but has some chlorinated water and the temperatures of the various pools are much cooler and less varied than in... More

A series of indoor and outdoor pools of varying temperatures to just sit and chill out! We went on a Saturday and was incredibly busy, with lots of locals, so maybe mid week is best!? The minerals in the water are great for the skin, and the variety in pools gives you lots to choose from, with jacuzzis, rapids, saunas... More

First time in a spa and thermal pools so not entirely sure what we would find. And we found large hot pools many with bubbling water. Clean, busy, quite expensive. Basically we stood in the warm to hot water for an hour and a half and went back to the hotel. I could have done this in the bath but... More

Many pools with different temperature of water and many jets of pressurized water and other attractions. Few saunas and steam baths. Two pools are outside the building one of them simulates flowing water. Every thing was clean. Prices were reasonable with big discounts for underground parking. We left there relaxed and we recommend it.

We stopped here the other day because I thought it would be fun to have my teen daughters experience a European spa. They did not feel comfortable with the nudity in the Freidrichspa where I went so I brought them down the hall to the Caracalla. A bit like Disney, with warm water and too many people. The Freidrichspa, just... More
