Kaiser Friedrich Therme

The roman-irish bath - Kaiser Friedrich Therme - in Wiesbaden. Like the romans about 2000 years ago, you can take a bath in the water of Wiesbaden's hot springs here. There is also a finnish sauna, a russian steam bath, a tropical ice rain, a rasul, a sand bath, a "lumenarium" (room with different changing colors), a music/meditation room and a lot more...

Since cameras aren't allowed in the bath, I had to take a "photo of a photo". Credits go to Xenia Drebes who took this photo.

Super nice inside! I would have no idea this is in Germany. Really different thant what can be seen in Wiesbaden I believe... What's the purpose of the "lumenarium" though, any idea?

maya - unfortunately, that much luxery has its price: it costs 17,50 Euros (basic entrance), massages, treatments with see weeds for example, sand bath, or rasul go extra...

perle de rosée - you're right it's quite an experience

cynthia - you can :). The decoration just makes it even more interesting.

karine - I guess it's a new form of treatment, trying to influence your mood through a color bath. I've also heard that they tried to use colors in therapy as well. Blue for example is said to lighten inflammations...

Looks a lovely place to relax. The Romans knew a thing or two.

This is the American in me showing, but is it entirely nude?

Thank you all for your comments!!!

Mea - yes, it's entirely nude, but you can wear a towel or a bath robe when you're not in the water. Tuesday is ladies only day!
