  • The design and the variety of offers are almost unmatched in the city (field of honour include, when compared to the other large saunas like Mediterrana) from Cologne. The Asian Spartan held ambience and the service is wonderful and you can park it right there or train well comes out with the U. , If one wants to use a small swim goggles in the pool because of the strong chlorination, you will pull unhindered during sport swimmers from the fine Studio, prevented their sports cars only drawback.

  • Overall you already realize that moving in a different price range: the audience is somehow "genuine", it's nice and quiet, the equipment is high quality. Really pleasant. We have a relaxed Sunday allowed us, and there spent the afternoon and evening - a good decision. It was not crowded, but we had to find something, lying side by side to get two - for me but not end of the world. There are enough places to rest, something to read or sleep, and also with various "sound levels". The saunas were me personally something to uniformly designed. I had also a salt wall in the salt sauna or a be salting (there's that word at all?) the air are desired, there was however "only" salt Scrubs for self-testing. Also right, of course, but... at "Salt-sauna" I had a different expectation after my last visits to the sauna. Citrus sauna It smelled like only very subtle citrus - I'd like to sit not completely befuddled in the sauna, but we expected something more both. Compared with other saunas the general ambience is the variance of the saunas but really nice and definitely near the top in my personal ranking :) - rather in my experience mediocrity. But as we were very relaxed and would definitely come back, said, ultimately it is yes no amusement park, but a place of recreation. The food in its restaurant was worthy of repeat - we dined pasta, soup, salad and Tarte Flambée and were completely convinced of everything. Day ticket, food and drinks we were going on €120 for two just about - that's already a lot of money, but I find we have invested it well :)

  • We had a very pleasant stay. The sauna area was very nice and pleasant. The infusions and peelings were always on time. The staff was very friendly. The restaurant is super, great food and great staff. The best thing has to offer Cologne!
