The Best Saunas in Strasbourg: Bains Municipaux

Plus Nordic pool and Roman baths, salt room, and other features… For us this is the best saunas in Strasbourg, a rare and unique place to spend time as a couple

If you’re visiting or living in Strasbourg, the saunas at the Municipal Baths are an absolute must-visit. They’re luxurious, relaxing, and great to try at any time of the year.

There are several different sauna options available:

  • dry steam
  • salt
  • infrared saunas
  • and a big bonus: jacuzzi, cold bath, outside well-being area, and Nordic pool!

Everything is clean, well-maintained, and accessible for visitors 16 y.o. and older.

The Best Saunas in Strasbourg: good to know

  • Time to spend: 2-3 hours
  • Bring your own towel, water bottle, swim suit
  • We found the less crowded time to be on weekday mornings
  • And don’t forget to take off your glasses (if you wear one) before entering the sauna

1. Sauna routine for newbies

  • your first visit to the sauna should be short and intense: between 8-12 minutes
  • take a cool/cold shower on leaving
  • give yourself at least fifteen minutes of relaxation in the rest room, before another visit to the sauna
