Your first visit
May I take photographs?
You are more than welcome to record your visit to us by taking pictures of yourself and your loved ones. In view of other visitors, however, it is not allowed to take pictures in the nudist area. In order to enjoy 100% relaxation and to successfully top up your energy reserves, mobile phones should be set to silent mode or ideally left at home.
What effects does the thermal water have?
Baden-Baden's thermal water rises from a depth of 2000 metres and thanks to being highly mineralised, with approx. 3000 milligrams of minerals per litre, it ranks among Germany's top mineral-rich waters. With temperatures of between 32° and 68°C, it regenerates and stimulates the entire body enhancing your wellbeing and aiding relaxation.
Are there additional offers?
The Friedrichsbad can be ideally combined with a training session in the ArenaVita Premium Fitness Club or with the beauty and wellness treatments in the CaraVitalis.

In the Friedrichsbad a selection of drinks are available to you. You can also treat your taste buds in our SpaRestaurant (in the Caracalla Spa building).
