Especially enjoyable during the winter months when there’s snow on the ground outside, a sauna is the perfect way to relax, unwind and sweat out toxins from the festive months. Austria is renowned for its spa culture and Vienna’s saunas have become a popular meeting place for locals.

Amalienbad

This Art Deco/Art Nouveau masterpiece, a time capsule of 1920’s ‘Red Vienna’, is by far one of the city’s most photogenic pools. Based in Vienna’s working class district, the women’s sauna, decked out with a stained glass roof and mosaic tiles, is a fabulously retro venue in which to sweat it all out.

The Ring Hotel Spa

The view of the Karlskirche through a porthole from the sauna, illuminated at night, is by far the highlight of this boutique day spa in the heart of the city.

Therme Wien

Opened in 2010, this sprawling complex covering 75,000 msq (making it Europe’s biggest modern city spa) is a calm oasis, perfect for a one-day holiday. The Brine World (access available at an additional charge) has a variety of saunas of varying temperatures and a ‘Floatarium’ for weightless relaxation.

Jörgerbad

Building, Swimming Pool
Constructed just before the beginning of WWI, Jörgerbad is among the oldest indoor swimming pools in Vienna. Tastefully adorned in Art Nouveau decor, with rusty orange and sky blue tiles and a swooping oval glass roof – this impressive building in the low-key 17th district is one of the most attractive places to get your daily exercise. As well as the sauna, be sure to check out all the modern additions that have been added to the original 1914 design, including a water slide that runs partially outside the building.

Hietzingerbad

Swimming Pool
Located on the outskirts of the suburb of the 13th district Hietzing, home to the well-known Schonbrunn Palace and the city zoo, this low-key sauna offers you the chance to rest and relax in a local setting. A humble pool – surrounded wonderfully tacky palms and sunny yellow tiles that turn a kind of neon deep blue hue at night – is also available to use.
