My girlfriend and I decided to try somthing new, so we booked a day at the Spa. This place is situated on a rooftop in the centre of Berlin and is great if you just want to spend the day relaxing and destressing. There is a large heated indoor pool which allowes you to swim outside aswell. There is ample seating provided around the pool . The spa provides 4 saunas, a steam room and 4 whirlpools. There is also a restaurant which has delicious food at a reasonable price. The whole place has a very calming, relaxing atmosphere. We bought a day pass, which allowes you to stay till midnight if you wish. We ended up staying about 7 hours!!!! Was just so relaxing. Didnt want to leave. We will definately be returning.

This is a wonderful, relaxing sauna, swimming and spa center atop the Europa Center with a inspiring view of central Berlin.

All activities are "mixed" in the Northern European sense of things so you will run into men as well as women completely naked (that is why it is so relaxing since it's no big thing).

Unfortunately, they do not translate their website into English. Except for the restaurant waitress not much English was spoken BUT don't be shy about asking the regulars to guide you through this wonderful place.

If you are ONLY interested in swimming then you may wear a bathing suit in the swimming pool OTHERWISE bathing attire is NOT allowed in any of the saunas. I saw some women with swim suits but NO men wearing them.

There are separate changing rooms for men as well as for women. You are given a locker key which you can wear on your wrist. For valuables I would recommend you use the special lockers (place your locker key and money in here) near the main restaurant since you will need your wallet to make food and drink purchases.

The pool has a few jet-stream "hot spots" and make a point to swim in the outdoor area near to all the sunbathers since the view is terrific and there are two waterfalls at opposite ends, too.

There are dry saunas as well as wet (my favorite) steam rooms. These Haman-like rooms vary in their intensity and fragrance depending on which one your are in. There is even a dry sauna on the lower level that looks like a Finnish lakeside cabin.

The whirlpool baths rotate every half hour so why not visit all of them? There are basically two almost-identical sides to the sauna/whirlpool area (originally when the center opened 39+ years ago men were segregated from women).

Spa treatments (including massage) are offered on another floor which I did not visit.

Equipment: Bring your own rubber sandals, towel, bathrobe (a must) and you will save on the admission price.

Otherwise, you can rent the "complet" package at 29.80 euros as of April 2009. Late night admission appears to be a little bit less in price.



Address: Nurnberger str 7
Directions: Atop the Europa Center. Just off the Ku'dam and close to the KaDeWe department store.

5 saunas, 3 steam rooms, 4 hot plunge pools, 5 cold plunge pools, a swimming pool and a rooftop garden with sunloungers. They have massages and day spa facilities but didn't use them. Never felt crowded, maybe it does in the summer. I was staying in 5 star hotels with spa areas but ended up here instead each day beacuse it is much bigger and better than them.

The rule is you can wear swimsuits in the pool, if you want, but not in any of the sauna areas so after the first swim and trip to the saunas, everyone leaves them off.

They were retiling the changing rooms while I was there - it didn't bother me at all but should be finished within another week or so.
