Cost was 18Euro for a total day pass, which is good value I believe. I went on a Saturday and stayed for about 8 hours. The changing rooms are seperate for male and females. In the main complex there’s a pool, 4 saunas, 2 steam rooms, hot and cold spas, and a pub and restaurant. Plus there’s additionally places outside where you are able to swim and relax. The clientelle really is pretty much 50/50 men and females, and of all ages. Girl come here either by theirselves, with friends, or with partners – unlike the UK where a large proportion of girls who visit are with a partner. Everybody who goes in the sauna or steam room is fully naked(unlike these UK places where a lot of folks keep themselves wrapped in a towel) and lots of people just walk about the complex naked(though in the restaurant and bar area you have to wear a bath robe). And also unlike these UK places, there is no perving or “swinging” going on. Everyone here is here because they love using the sauna, hot tub, and swimming pool. I truly loved my time there. This is the kind of place I Have been looking for a lengthy time. It was quite active on the day that I went.
Then on the day which I returned back to the UK I had a little bit of time to spare, so I went along to the Sauna Garten in Blub, at Buschkrugallee 64. Was not that easy to find the real area itself. I needed to enter the Hotel reception and ask, who pointed me to the different side of the car park. Afterward I couldn’t spot it easily, because there was no clear signs at the entry to say that this was a sauna complex, there was just a sign(can not remember what it said) to signal that this was the entrance to a pub.
Anyhow, guessed in and found this was indeed the sauna. The cost was 18Euro for up to FOUR hours, or 20Euro for a day pass. As I only had just over 2 hours to spare however, I went for the 4 hours choice. All quite fine interior. The changing room is unisex. Afterward in the key place there’s 6 saunas, and 2 steam rooms – all of fluctuating temperatures and styles. Plus there is a small swimming pool, sanatariam, and relaxation area. Again, everyone naked in the sauna and steam rooms – none of this silly towel wearing business. A good number of people walk around the intricate nude. Didn’t seem to be quite as balanced a blend of sexes here though(on this occasion anyway), perhaps about 62% males/38% females at my rough estimate. http://nudeace.com went on a Tuesday afternoon between 3 and 5pm. There was probably only about 30 people here at that point. I anticipate it would have got a little more active later that evening after I ‘d gone. I was unhappy to have to leave the area! As with the Therma Europa Centre, I found this sauna completely brilliant. And I would see again if/when I am next in Berlin.
If just they’d spots such as this in England. It’d be excellent to visit one each week to relax nude. Instead all we get here(apart from the united kingdom festival saunas which are highly recommended) are these pitiful seedy “naturist health Spas” which are dominated by perverts and swingers(due to the inclusion of “play rooms” upstairs), and a mainly male clientelle. Never ever again will I pay to see those areas again – The price I pay(paid) for those(?15 for Bristol Gardens, ?18 for Rio’s) will pay for half the price of a return plane ticket to Berlin! http://macgallery.net paid merely ?35 for my flight to Berlin from London Stansted.
I look forward to returning to Berlin or elsewhere in Germany later this year, and spending a day or two nude at any of these outstanding sauna complexes again.
German Saunas = completely dazzling!!
UK Saunas = completely rubbish
