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 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.
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.
