Can you imagine that we spend a day in a very beautiful place without taking any pictures? That is simply because we were in an environment that didn’t allow any cameras: the Carolus Thermen in Aachen.
What is awaiting you in this paradise? 3 thermal pools (1 inside, 2 outside), 15 saunas (dry and wet) and 3 restaurants! To be honest, it’s not cheap, but it is worth the money, certainly if you are looking for some luxurious relaxation.
After you have changed to swimming gear, enter the beautiful thermal pool, surrounded by 18 columns, take a dip in the warm water grotto and venture into one of the outdoor pools. Go two levels up, take off all your clothes and you are in sauna paradise.
Lars had never been to a sauna before and found the heat to be oppressive. He felt a lot better in the Oriental World of Baths (one floor down) with its hammam and steam baths, which quickly became our favourite place. At the end of the afternoon Lars and I had a snack in Bella Vista, one of the restaurants.
