After reading several reviews about the baths, we chose to go on a mixed day when everyone is nude everywhere. As we were advised, we lost all inhibitions within minutes of disrobing in the locker room--in the presence of men and women. The stages were well designed to heat you up and then cool you off. Be sure to do... More

If you don't mind being a bit adventurous and try getting out of your inhibitions of your body then this is a worth a try. The changing rooms are mixed sex on four days a week. You change and lock up all your things. You will be given a big sheet of cloth which is not for covering yourself but... More

Was at first skeptical of "nude" bathing, but after 5 minutes it just didn't matter. Everything about Friedrichsbad is great; clean, calm, and rejuvenating. We took the full 4 hours, inclusive of the massage, and loved every minute of our lives xperience. Highly recommend.

If you come to Baden-Baden and pass on Friedrichsbad, you are really missing out. We were nervous about the nudity as it was our first time at a nude bath and we are far from model figures, but our nerves were alleviated within minutes inside the place. After a minute or two in the first shower, we forgot all about... More

Don't let the pictures of beautiful people in the add put you off. I had some seriously teary moments at the thought of baring my all at the baths, but the range of body types present eases the anxiety and everyone is really considerate and helpful. Eventually it becomes a wonderful experience that I plan to repeat. Be brave. It... More

Yes we agree with the majority of reviews here. This is a must do in Baden Baden. My wife had initial reservations about nude bathing but at the end of the four hours came out with a huge smile. The being nude is an essential part of the whole process and experience and in our experience we quickly adapted and... More

This was our first experience at a nude bathhouse, and after about five minutes I felt right at ease. Here are a few tips. The 17 stations are actually around 8 stations, and every now and then you go back to the shower to rinse off, and the final two stations (suggested time 30mins at each station) are sort of... More
