Friedrichsbad: Marble, Mosaic and Imperial Baths

The Friedrichsbad thermal complex was built to raise the city's economy that had suffered from the Franco-German war. It has been successfully serving this function for nearly 150 years! At the order of Grand Duke Friedrich I, a Renaissance palace was built at the thermal springs, where the terms existed even in Roman times. The palace was intended to attract the noblemen of Baden-Baden with its image only.

Friedrichsbad’s layout-design resembles the Roman Baths of Caracalla, the interior is splendid palaces: the walls of the complex are decorated with marble, mosaics, paintings, and the swimming pool is made of Carrara marble. There is a museum at the underground part of the complex, where you can see fragments of the earliest Roman baths of the site and watch a mini-film about the baths. Friedrichsbad complex functions based on the Roman-Irish tradition: hot spring baths of different temperature and hot-air baths. The bathing experience of the visitors begins with a shower followed by massage (if it is included in the ticket) and swimming in pools of different water temperatures (up to 67 degrees), and later the visitors are provided various spa treatments. The complex also offers relaxation in the Imperial bath designed for one person or in hot tubs for two and all that with champagne! Friedrichsbad is an all-nude thermal spa. You needn’t take anything with you to visit these thermal baths: slippers, sheets and bathing accessories are provided with a ticket. In total, Friedrichsbad has 17 "stations" - rooms and pools for a variety of procedures (swimming, massage, thalassotherapy, and air baths). The luxury ticket is for a 4-hour stay.
