I've been to several German spas in the last year and I think this was my least favorite. Besides the resistance pool outside (which was actually really fun), I just wasn't that crazy about the design of the pools, spas, or saunas. I didn't get a calming vibe from the place and didn't feel like it was really relaxing. If... More

My boyfriend and I visited Claudius Therme on our weekend visit to Cologne for the Christmas Markets. What a great find. After walking all day on Saturday at the zoo and all around the Markets it was lovely to visit here on Sunday morning. It was really well organised. It was very cold the weekend of our visit so didn't... More

We went down to Koln from Dusseldorf really just to go to this spa. It was a little chaotic as we had the language issue, but the place has a happy, lively feel-almost as if it's a spa party. Which is pretty funny (for an American) considering the nakedness. There are lots of couples, though, which helps the discomfort fall... More

Arrived in Cologne 2 hours after a redeye flight from the US. Discovered that a visit to a modern sauna and swimming pool (indoors) facility is the perfect place to decompress. Planned to stay for 2 hours but ended up staying 4 hours. There are moist, dry and scented saunas as well very comfortable "quiet" rooms with lounge type chairs... More

Went in October with a friend who lives in Neuss. I loved the "difference". You could never do this in UK with such confidence and unwritten etiquette. I really enjoyed exposing myself to a different cultural scene. The Germans have got this thing absolutely right. Go there.

Really great place . Spend a whole day there . Just don't forget to bring flip flops and a robe or you'll have to pay for them. I recommend to go to the Zoo and then take the Selibahn to get into the spa. ( the Zoo is very close to the spa , in order to cross the river... More

Great spa, so many pools, Jacuzzis and saunas you could spend hours here. 2hrs for €15 really is cheap for what's on offer. Take your own flips and towel or you'll have to pay more and the main spa is not naked but the saunas are balls deep

It is a nice place to relax lot of Ambients big variety although 90% of the visitors are high above 70. We accidentally swam into their gymnastic course ( we were swimming from outside in) and even talking very silent discussing where to go they were asking us to leave the pool and others kept complaining as well as in...

This is a really nice place to relax. You have convenient lockers and showers, and everything you need for a good experience. The pools were great.
