Public baths & wellness
Forget the stress of everyday life - relax and recharge your batteries in the Vierordtbad or enjoy action and plenty of sliding fun at Europabad – at Karlsruhe's public baths you’ll find plenty to suit anybody's type and taste. There are lots of beautiful saunas in Karlsruhe for connoisseurs, fitness junkies can swim their rounds in the 50-metre pools, and adventurers will also come into their own.
Going by the motto ‘he who swims outdoors stays fit’, the Sonnenbad (literally sunbaths in English) is the only outdoor pool in Germany that is open from March to November. In addition to a pool with a slide and a children’s paddling pool, it offers a swimming pool that is 50 metres long and 15 metres wide. All pools and the changing rooms are heated as necessary depending on the time of year; at colder times, they are heated to 28°C.Details
The Vierordtbad’s slogan is ‘Water, warmth, well-being!’ – a fitting description for this feel-good oasis right at the heart of Karlsruhe. These modern swimming baths are located in a historic bathhouse that first opened in 1900. Swim and bathe in the balmy waters of the main temperature-controlled pool, or relax in one of the smaller warm-water pools, which are heated to 36°C.Details
