spa etiquette in Baden Baden

by dobrovod

I have been to Baden Baden before but didn't make it to the Caracalla Therme or Friedrichsbad. I'm hoping to make a trip there again later this month for a long weekend. Would it be best to try both places on different days? What is the typical etiquette inside the spa, completely undressed after a locker area, towels are provided, etc? Are robes and slippers provided or available for sale? Should I plan to wear swimming attire in some parts of the facilities? If I schedule any treatments, is tipping expected?

The two spas are totally different.

Caracalla-Therme: normal swimwear required in the pool area, you move freely and do as you like. You bring your own swimsuit, towels and everything, in 'emergency' these things can also be rented for a small fee. Only the sauna part upstairs, completely separated and out of sight, is nude. When buying the ticket you have the choice between pool area only, sauna only, or pool and sauna.

Friedrichsbad: entirely nude. Fixed curriculum. Sexes are separated except in the big pool at the end. Towels etc. are provided, no need to bring anything.

Are there locker room areas for storage? (I now think that I'll try a couple days at the Caracalla and then one at the Friedrichsbad.)

Thank you.

There are big lockers for your clothes etc. behind the changing cabins, and small lockers for valuables a) at the entrance to the changing area and b) inside at the beginning of the pool area. The keys have straps so you can tie them round your wrist or to your swimsuit and keep them with you all the time.

I'm talking about Caracalla, I have never been to Friedrichsbad (the nude thing doesn't appeal to me) but I'd expect it to be the same, as both belong to the same company.

Trinkhalle

by tini58de

This drinking hall was especially built for mineral cures by Friedrich Hübsch in the 19th century. A hallway of 90 meters length with Corinthian pillars and 14 frescos ddecorate this monumental building.

A marble bust of Emperor (Kaiser) Wilhelm 1st in front of the Trinkhalle reminds of him and his wife Augusta being frequent guests in Baden-Baden for 40 years.

The healing water from the Friedrichsquelle inside the building is served together with Nuremberg healing water.

The rooms are now used as information center with one of the 2 tourist information, a ticket agency, a souvenir shop and a reader’s cafe with domestic and international press.

Opening hours : daily from 10 am to 6.30 pm.

Trinkhalle: Water tasting!

by Kathrin_E

Unfortunately there is no category "water tasting" among the themes...

The Trinkhalle (drinking hall) hosts the tourist information office and one of Baden-Baden's thermal springs, the Friedrichsquelle. Hot spring water is constantly running from the tap and may be taken for free. Bring a bottle or a cup, or get a plastic cup for 20 cents there.

It is recommended not to drink more than 400 ml of this water per day. Well, I assume you won't want more. The taste is strange, rather salty. Give it a try, though - this is one of the things one simply HAS to do when in Baden-Baden...

The 19th century hall was built as a shady refuge where people could walk up and down, talk, watch and be watched while sipping their water.
The paintings on the walls show scenes from old regional legends and fairy tales.

The relief in the gable above the main entrance (photo 5) shows the healing powers of Baden-Baden's springs. From left to right, sick and old people are brought to the spring, which is impersonated by the nymph in the centre who is giving water to a little child and his mother. On the right side, healthy and happy young people are dancing and playing with their children.
