Fodor's Review

Also known as the Roman-Irish Baths, Friedrichsbad offers a one-of-a-kind spa experience. With 17 stations that take you through warm and hot dry saunas, ice baths, and thermal pools, there is a method to the ultimate relaxation on offer. Housed in a building dating back to 1877, this "temple of well-being" was considered the most modern bathing establishment in Europe and its ornate copper and terra-cotta temple only adds to the unique ambience. As with all spas in Germany, this one is textile-free; the 3½-hour spa treatment package includes a honey peeling or soap-and-brush massage. Note that no cameras or children under 14 are allowed.
