It gets cold and damp outside, so many people long for a break in the thermal baths. Which ones are particularly recommended in Germany is shown by the Thermen-Check 2023.

Summer is finally over and those seeking relaxation have to find other options than sun and beach to be able to relax properly again. It's a good thing that there are a large number of thermal baths in Germany that offer numerous opportunities for a nice break - whether relaxing in the high-temperature water, feeling good with a massage or some fun and action on fast-paced water slides.

Germany's best thermal spa is located in Bavaria

The holiday portal Travelcircus took a close look at a total of 286 thermal baths in Germany, Austria and Switzerland during the Thermen-Check 2023 and created a list of the best for each country (you can read the evaluation from the previous year here). The most important criteria for the ranking included attractive value for money, reviews from guests on Google and TripAdvisor, facilities for saunas, steam baths and spa treatments, and general awareness based on the average number of search queries on Google. For Germany, it turns out that the best thermal baths in the Federal Republic of Germany are located in Bavaria.

At the same time, the front-runner in the check is the largest thermal spa in Europe – the Therme Erding. In 30 saunas and five steam baths, visitors will find regeneration and relaxation. One of the highlights is the VitalOasis, which is reserved for guests over the age of 16 and where you can relax in whirlpools and sulphur pots. On the other hand, the adventure pool offers plenty of action for families: young and old alike can choose between 28 slides, a wave pool or a wild lazy river.

Second place in the 2023 Thermal Spa Check went to Therme Euskirchen with its paradisiacal ambience including 500 South Sea palms and turquoise water. For well-being, there are 10 saunas and a steam bath, as well as a variety of infusion programmes. In the massage oasis, visitors can let themselves be pampered and thus switch off from everyday life.

The top 3 are rounded off by Aqualand Cologne: both adventure seekers and those seeking relaxation will get their money's worth thanks to spectacular water slides as well as eleven saunas and two steam baths. On top of that, visitors can relax in a deceptively real cave, the adventure grotto, in extraordinary surroundings.

How much does a visit to a spa in Germany cost?

Who would have thought? A visit to the thermal baths in Germany is still cheap compared to neighboring countries: On average, admission costs 29.66 euros including saunas, as the thermal spa check by Travelcircus has shown. In Austria, guests pay an average of 41.80 euros for a warming break. However, the wellness Olympus has been reached in Switzerland: visitors have to pay an average of 71.47 euros here, which represents a price increase of around 23 percent compared to the previous year.
