Enjoy an Invigorating Spa Ritual
Switch off your mobile phone, leave your laptop in the hotel and spend the day at one of Baden-Baden’s famous spas. Since opening in 1877, the old-world style spa of Friedrichsbad has blossomed into a veritable temple of wellbeing – a relaxing, joyful experience utilising methods and traditions stemming back over 140 years. Water in the spa is sourced from the slopes of Florentinerberg and as it contains high mineral content, the liquid has curative properties for bathers. Once happily ensconced inside the spa, make your way around the 17-step circuit of hot and cold baths, enjoy an invigorating soap and brush massage and steam sauna, before taking a refreshing dip in the thermal pools. It’s worth noting that Friedrichsbad spa has a no clothing policy so if you’re shy and retiring, head to nearby Caracalla Therme instead. The thoroughly modern Caracalla spa boasts a combination of indoor and outdoor warm thermal pools, a Roman-style sauna and restaurant serving delicious healthy snacks.
