The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.

Perfect sauna relax for cold winters!
Jan 2018 • Couples
Two saunas, outdoor and indoor chill area. It's got quite busy, maybe as it was Monday 'happy hour'. Nice vibes, friendly service, wonderful, clean sauna and rest zones, I sooooo zoned out (only mild disturbance was someone loudly crunching on an apple in the otherwise completely quiet area, eating there should be restricted)

relaxing

A small and very relaxing sauna in the heart of prenzlberg. there are two sauna rooms, one in the main section and the other one you reach through a small cobble-stoned courtyard which has seating areas and beautiful culptures of giacometti-like proportions. once an hour is "aufguss" time, when water, mixed with etherical oils, is poured onto the hot stones. wonderful and relaxing

Small, cosy and affordable Sauna

This is very different from the bigger spas in Berlin, but this is a good thing. :) They have two saunas, an indoor one which isn't as super-hot as the outdoor one. They also have a sort of open lounge, as well as a little bar area and a rest room with beds which is set back from the lovely lovely garden. After a hot sauna infusion the garden is the perfect place to stand and relax in. They have a ladies day and this is affordable, allow I'd say 2 or 3 hours, 3 hours should get you at least two of the aufguss infusion sessions which are wonderful!

Not bad

The reception area of this place doubles up as a kind of lounge for regulars to have a beer, smoothy or even what looked like a mixture of both. The staff were helpful as to guide us into the small open shared changing area where you strip. We rented two towels each one to sit and one for our feet.

There was a little communal area where I flicked through a coffee table book of Saunas while some chose to towel down in the same area. It all seemed pretty cosy. This was mixed sex and nude as I'm told is common in Germany, all nude, men and women, welcome in all areas. Changing, sauna and a garden in the middle which had a selection of benches or some people standing to air dry.

One cabin was 75°c and could accommodate at most 10-15 sitting and the other one was a 100°C log cabin in the garden which could see 15-20 people sitting in it, and did. I was there on the last Sunday before the end of New Years holiday's and perhaps that was why it was busy but we were cheek to cheek.

It's cosy in there. I was shimmying past people in narrow hallways but it also has to be said that it felt far more comfortable than some larger facilities that I've attended. There was a very friendly atmosphere in the cabins and I'd be happy to return even if it were packed. The largest seating area is just off the garden and has sun loungers to lye flat and read.

A perfect small, fun local sauna.
