Roman Bath Ruins

The first bathing facilities were erected by the Romans in the then named town of Aquae Aureliae. One of these baths, the so-called Soldiers’ Bath, is to be found beneath today’s Friedrichsbad. Here, in a uniquely preserved state, visitors can view the bath’s remarkable floor and wall heating systems. A visit to the ruins is a fascinating step back in time when a long forgotten age can be experienced at close quarters.

On touring the baths, which are one of Germany’s oldest and best preserved examples, you will pass by 2m-high Roman walls and experiencemore that 2000 years of history at first hand – it’s as if the ancient Roman bathing culture had suddenly been revived!

Informative guided tours are available to visitors. For those who prefer to tour the ruins on their own, audio guides are available – naturally in several languages. And to complete the picture, detailed computer graphics will enable you to see how the historic bathsactually looked in their days of glory.

Guided tours around the Roman Bath Ruins from April to November. Every 2nd Saturday in the month at 2pm. Duration about 45 min., 4€ p.p.
