This is a well organised, clean facility with wonderful pools, hot tubs, more pools and lots to do. The site is very easy to find and has a parking garage located right beside. How it works: As you arrive you are handed a small plastic token (and small bill) that you will keep with you to record your activity (this... More

Really lovely place for sunbathing outside. Just could be very busy on weekend. But for single person no problem to find a place. Was also a summer deal: you pay for 3 hours and get one hour for free, which means 3 + 1= 4 hours at the price of 3 h.

The personnel was helpful and friendly, the guests were kind and showing us around when we needed help. I loved most of the saunas, the pool in the middle with dim light and underwater music. All clean.

Not far from the center, 15 min walking. Many pools with different temperatures, one really cold. Hydromassages of different size and an external pool with a stream like a river started up twice per hour.

Although the do have a swimmingpool area, I only go to the sauna area, which is separated from the swimmingpool. With at least 9 different saunas, and a Turkish steambath, you'll probably find the relaxation you're after. Sometimes the aufguss is very crowded, but apart from that it's very good.

Over the last year I've visited several spas in Germany. This one is one of the better ones...very clean, calming, and modern. Multiple areas to explore and rest in, which keeps you from being bored. Really recommend if you're looking to relax.

Sitting in the outside pool in January with snowflakes coming down was a truly beautiful thing. Take a towel, robe and some cash to spend on food and spend the whole day there. There are plenty of spaces to rest and even a soundproof sleeping room.

In Victorian times a great many people came here for wellness reasons. It being open to the public you can just stroll around and feel, see and smell the hot water coming out into the fountains.

This was our 3rd family visit to Carolus Therme in Aachen, Germany. We chose the morning of 22 December since our kids were lucky to be on Christmas break already, whereas German schools were still running and Carolus Therme had lower guest levels (and no children). The place features two outside pools, connected to the interior through swim-through canals. Indoor,... More

Beautiful facilities and very well organized this is a must visit place. Swimming in the warm water in one of the outside pools during a cold winter day is an experience in itself. Make sure you bring a towel and don't go upstairs unless you want to be surrounded by naked Germans.
