Pure relaxation: Wellness tips for your Berlin vacation

Let yourself be pampered and plan a wellness day during your holiday in Berlin. Whether municipal baths, a neighbourhood sauna or a luxurious day spa, Berlin has something to suit every taste. These include the city’s numerous historic baths, such as Stadtbad Neukölln, whose design was modelled on an ancient thermal bath.

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city

Berlin is exciting. There is something new to discover around every corner. Cultural highlights and tourist attractions are just waiting to be explored, as well as big shows and smaller concerts in the neighbourhoods. Some restaurants serve haute cuisine, while others will lure you with the smell of hearty Berlin cuisine and Currywurst. For shopping, you can browse flea markets, stroll through luxurious malls or discover chic boutiques in remote corners. On a tour through the city, your senses are constantly stimulated by new scents and smells, by music and conversations. Around the clock.

Fortunately, Berlin also offers many oases of peace and wellness. In the tranxx you will float on silky water and experience absolute deep relaxation with gentle underwater music. There are also discounts with the Berlin WelcomeCard, as well as at Fußfetifisch Berlin, where a shoal of scaled employees takes care of the hardened skin on your feet. Why don’t you give it a try during your next visit to Berlin?

Wellness with history

Almost every neighbourhood has its own public baths. The bathhouses have a long-standing tradition in Berlin and date back to a time when not all apartments were equipped with showers or bathtubs. Today, Berliners meet to swim a few lanes together or to relax in the sauna. In the city’s original Turkish baths, relax and unwind as if you have stepped into a scene from 1001 Arabian Nights.

Temporarily closed. - With its opening in 1914, the public pool was already considered to be among Europe’s most beautiful pools. Today, with up to 10,000 daily guests, it is one the largest facilities of its kind. Architect reinhold Kiehl designed the model after an ancient thermal bath, bringing about an ensemble of public bath and library.

Stadtbad Schöneberg "Hans Rosenthal" public swimming pool

The Stadtbad Schöneberg public swimming pool reopened in January 2012 after three years of renovation work. This work turned out to be considerably more expensive than planned, but all the more necessary because of it. Since it reopened, the swimming pool has borne the name of the Jewish entertainer and presenter of the TV show Dalli Dalli, Hans Rosenthal. He learnt to swim here for the first time at age 25, after he was forbidden to enter the swimming pool as a child by the Nazis.

Bad am Spreewaldplatz

If anything is missing in Berlin, it's the sea. The river that runs through the city, the Spree, can only slightly make up for this lack. But kids love splashing around in the water. The wave pool in the Bad am Spreewaldplatz swimming pool gives youngsters an idea of the force of nature before they go on a trip to the coast by the sea or even the ocean.

Time and again you will find gardens both large and small, meadows, playgrounds and magnificent parks in the middle of the city. There are around 2500 public green spaces in Berlin with an area of 6500 hectares. For comparison: one hectare is about the size of a professional football field.

In summer, Berlin also offers a range of outdoor fitness activities: Try tai chi or yoga at Tempelhofer Feld. The oldest Buddhist temple in Europe invites you to meditation courses in Frohnau.
