Aukammtal Bad in Wiesbaden -- any experience with it?

by fritzrl Online Now Mar 11, 2005 at 1:32 PM

Here I am, looking forward to speeding my recovery from jet-lag in Wiesbaden by visiting the Kaiser-Friedrich Therme for a little steam and sauna. I was disappointed to find out only yesterday that the day I’ll be in town (Tuesday) is the women-only day at KF, and I don’t qualify.

However, I did find on the website a reference to the Thermalbad Aukommtal – with a variety of pools (soaking, swimming, warm, cold), and a large selection of sauna experiences. It looks equally welcoming, if quite new, and the women-only day for Aukammtal is Monday.

Has anyone on the board ever visited the Aukammtal spa? If so, do you have any thoughts or impressions you’d like to share? Also: I know that KF is ‘textilfrei’ (no swimsuits required), but the website doesn’t mention whether Aukammtal is the same in that respect. I have no problem either way with being nude among strangers in an appropriate setting. But, if I don’t have to pack the swimming trunks, I’d rather not -- I likely won't be using them at any other time on the trip.

Thanks in advance for any info.

    Thanks, Brekkie!

    I actually did make that trip in 2005, and solved the problem by taking the waters in Baden-Baden the evening of my arrival, then in Wiesbaden the evening before my departure back to the US.

    It's a loop I hope to repeat early next year -- my return to Germany is already in the planning stages
