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.

I found this to be an average spa and quite pricey. Bring your own towel (4€), bathrobe (€7) and flip flops (10€) to save money on renting/ buying. A bathrobe is not essential unless you intend on going into the cafe/restaurant.

Echoing one of the other english speaking guests I have to say that more english around the saunas would have been really handy, we happened to get talking to a bilingual brit as we were about to leave and only then did we realise that our visit could have been even better. Also to all the apprehensive brits considering a... More
