- Aachen: For more than 2 millennia, the warm mineral waters that flow from thermal springs below Aachen have been used for health and relaxation. Spend a couple of hours at the Carolus Therme bath complex and you’ll be reinvigorated for the rest of your strenuous sightseeing schedule.
- Baden-Baden: There’s no better spa town in Germany, and certainly none more fashionable or famous than this sophisticated retreat in the Black Forest that has hosted royals and commoners alike. For a unique spa experience, shed your duds at the Friedrichsbad and follow the Roman-Irish bathing ritual that takes you through temperature-modulated saunas, steam rooms, and pools, finishing up with a cool-down and a relaxing snooze.
Wiesbaden: One of Germany’s oldest cities, Wiesbaden attracted Roman legions to its hot springs and lures travelers today to its casino, concert halls, and the huge Kaiser Friedrich Therme. Steam, soak, bubble, sweat, and bathe your cares away and then head over to Wiesbaden’s lovely beer garden on the Rhine.
