Dr J and I spent a glorious day at the Romertherme 'Health Resort' which features one of the most beautiful sauna and bathing landscapes- under the largest, freely suspended, glass roof in Europe. Apparently this spa was a favorite of the composer Beethoven's- I don't think the glass roof was around then!
The Schwefelwandl (small sulphured water baths) are in the 'open air' area.
We had the good fortune of enjoying beautiful warm weather while we relaxed.
This main large pool was connected via separate water 'tunnels' to the outside sulfur baths that were kept at around 36c and had massage like waterfalls.
The outside sulfur pool area had lounge chairs:
There was even a restaurant with cafeteria style health food:
Dr. J and I bought the 'all inclusive' pass which gave us access to the Sauna and Steam Bath area.
There were two Finnish saunas, two aroma stream baths, a bio sauna and an Ottoman steam bath.
Most of these were co-ed naked.
They actually had signs (wish I got a photo) of male/female swimsuit with a big 'X' across them.
We hung out most often in the eucalyptus aroma steam room when we were not in the sulfur baths and it was fantastic.
I must say the European spas are very different from North American Spas!
Have you ever been in a mineral or sulfur bath?
