Berliners survive the long winters by regularly going to their special sauna. Many locals are loyal to their favorite sauna, but this depends on preference and location. Whichever destination you choose for your soak and steam, each sauna is a privilege in its own right. No matter how much fun you are having, you want to take at least a two-hour break and make it to a Berlin sauna. They might just be one of Berlin‘s best kept secrets.
Most of the locals go all nude as they move from one sauna session to the next, but swimsuits are allowed. There are usually both hot and cold baths and pools for groups or individuals to dip in and out of, showers, and plenty of steam. This is one form of detox you wont be able to forget.
Liquidrom is a fairly well-known spa in Berlin because of its ultra modern set-up. They often invite DJs to play, and the swimmers and local bathers can sink their head underwater to get a listen to the underwater groove and enjoy the light show. It’s sort of like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (like many other places in Berlin). You can have a float in their saltwater pool all the way through midnight. Liquidrom definitely beats the bathtub any day.

Olivin Wellness Lounge Sauna
When they said lounge, they really meant it. In this Finnish sauna, you can get a massage and a tasty bite as well. If you want to enjoy your day here, the best to go is in the morning, when you can indulge in their sweet waffle breakfast. Olivin Wellness Lounge Sauna is an attractive cozy sauna in which to start your perfect day. If you can’t make it for the breakfast, they are open until midnight, and they have an herbal aromatic steam on the hour, every hour.
