  • The former municipal bathhouse Neptune bath is an exclusive, commercially operated 15 years fitness - and wellness area where you can become a member. The old building is built in the art nouveau style and preserved as much as possible. There are numerous fitness equipment in an art nouveau Hall, in the former swimming pool area. Physical therapy, cosmetic, massage, nutrition counseling and child care are offered. Further there is a protected monument historic sauna as well as an Asian sauna and Bäderlandschft with a total of seven saunas in the indoor and outdoor areas, swimming pools, several sun terraces and a Japanese Zen Garden. We were in the sauna area and were excited not only by the wide range of infusions. Super nice ambience, clean and neat, cool bath! By the swimming pool, the sound bath loved us. Here you can do through the water dive and listening to sounds! Unfortunately, the changing rules in the sauna area is somewhat strange, because women and men not treated equally! And selbstverstädlich, everything has its price, which is not low in this facility. The sauna and bath area is open from 9 to midnight. In addition to the members, this may be visited by day guests. The price of admission for a day card is over 30 euros. Add any parking fees for existing before the Neptune bath public parking garage come, because the bath itself offers no parking or makes available. There are two dining areas in the sauna area Art-Nouveau restaurant and Furthermore, the Baden Baden, a small restaurant with a beer garden where guests from the street have access. We have explored both restaurants and were impressed by the quality of the courts nor by the value for money! Conclusion: Design, the decor is beautiful! Unfortunately, it is often too crowded, and it's not fun then! The total cost of the day add up and are simply too high for accurate observation of things! The staff is very schulmeisternd and the customer is patronized very! Yes, it would please me if my small contribution of experience could be somewhat helpful to you.
