On the last evening of our vacation we came here for a massage to release our body from all the long days. The 45 minutes massage was really bad. It feels like the woman did it was not professional or in her first days in the job. Instead of feeling better I feel now much worse then before.

I was alone and my first time visit. It was much more beyond my expectations . Indoor and outdoor pools , jakuzis , hot showers , hot saunas and wonderful cooling pools. The restaurant menu was incredible . Drinking your beer in such a relaxing athmosphere was fantastic. In sauna part there are many naked people sitting next to each... More

I really like this place, the atomsphere is great, I come for relaxation,peace and quiet.The view of the dome is beautiful, relaxation rooms are fantastic. I do find the pools a bit chilly but I been too afraid to try on a warm summer day..afraid it will be too overcrowded.

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

Well worth a visit. We payed €15 each and spent about 2 hours in there. I would go again. One area you have to get your privates out but you can stay in the main area and avoid seeing and saggyness!

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.
