  1. L Luca
    Great, great place!

    “Visited August 2019, saturday afternoon. There were a lot of people of different age and style, a good action around and hanging by the pool with a drink was perfect atmosphere between cruising. For me one of the best saunas I visited, where you can really enjoy your time.“

  2. M Moscardini
    Un paradiso

    “Location: City center. 10 minutes walk from the station.
    Type of clientele: During the gay pride weekend in June 2019, the sauna was practically full 24 hours a day. The age ranged from 25 to 50 years. Many beautiful boys.
    Structure: On the ground floor there are the changing rooms, the outdoor pool and the bar. On the first floor the rooms for a fee. In the basement, customers walk in a dimly lit maze of cabins, mattresses for group fun and various tools. Everything kept well.
    Cleanliness: Good. Managers clean several times a day.
    Prices: Not too high.
    Advice for customers: In the days of Pride we had a lot of fun. Fantastic experience. But we don't know if, outside of the holidays, the sauna is full of people.
    Advice for managers: The fact that entry, after 10.00 p.m., costs little, is a good thing, but it would be better to allow customers to go out for dinner and return.“

    Too expensive

    “Too expensive for a sauna, and not as clean as it deserve. The place can be nice but it was boring with few people at 5PM a Saturday. You have to pay for everything, even the flip-flop...“

  4. A Alexander
    Mega expensive

    “Ok this is a nice sauna but boy it’s expensive and the money does stop at the door. You pay for the douche you pay for a private room you pay over the odds for the drinks. Clientele is varied but it’s the sushi bar effect where they are in a constant loop going round and round looking for an Adonis that’s not there.“

  5. S Sam
    Beautiful Sauna

    “The place is classy and a beautiful pool. Very clean and spread out. I was there on a Thursday night and there was not much action. I thought Germans are horny and would be more active. The majority were old men or the young who stick together. It's a fabulous place but people make the difference. Best of luck.“

  6. S Sam
    Good enough

    “I went on Wednesday. Such a neat and clean place. It has a lot of everything. Unfortunately most of guys are over 35. I was the only one under 26.“

  7. D Duc
    Drinks added onto bill

    “They added more drinks than ordered. We found this out when we were at the pool party at CSD. Needless to say our our bill was higher than expected and there were 6 vodka and cranberry juice we didn't have.“

  8. C C
    Cleanest sauna, but bill problem

    “Probably the cleanest sauna I have been to also quite spacious too (Not as big as the old Chariots in London) Wasn't very crowded both times I visited. Maybe max of 15 people max.

    However, I had quite a bad experience on the way out. They were trying to charge me for 4 drinks (Rum and coke singles) instead of the 2 drinks I had. Unfortunately, there is no way to prove the number of drinks you had or what you ordered coz you do not get a receipt or anything at the time of ordering ( they only take your locker no). After having to explain (several times) that I only had two singles and a sandwich and after my friend who was a regular explained (In german) that I was with him, they managed to charge only for what I had.

    Please be careful, I hope this is not their usual practice.“

  9. K Knut
    Most beautiful & relaxing gay sauna I know

    “Not more to add to the caption, Most Amazing Gay Sauna you'd Not Experten in the middle of a Törn.“

  10. I Ian
    Great experience in Cologne

    “Interesting and thoughtful design highlighted by the outdoor pool and surrounding cabanas, this place must rock on a summer afternoon. Friendly staff, quality fixtures and fittings and clean as a whistle. I've been to dozens of saunas around the world and this is definitely one of the best. Five stars from me. Highly recommended for a fun and relaxing time.“

  11. D Dima
    Too German

    “I have been twice. Well, a very German place. I mean it is like something very industrial and without soul. The people are like that as well. The atmosphere is not friendly, like it was a competition. Very strange. But in my opinion gay Cologne is like that upon the whole. I had fun, I met nice men, but there are much better saunas in Germany. I think I cannot write here which ones). Ah, one more very important thing to mention - too few showers for such a huge sauna. It is obviously a great minus.“

  12. H Hans

    “Went there a couple of times , But never again. Staff very unpleasant not to say rude . Not very clean either .“

  13. I Ian
    Absolutely awesome

    “I cannot recommend this sauna enough. From the themed parties, the interesting and thoughtful design, the fabulous outdoor pool, the bar, the food and the service, this place is heaven on earth. Just go there.“

  14. a alex
    Not bad!

    “I went there 2 times: the first time it was not so crowed, but you can find few guys to play with. The second time it was the youngsters day (I'm 23) and I really enjoyed my time there because there was many young guy (around 20ies). Inside the SPA there's also a big pool where you can swim; maybe not during the winter because the water is cold. Experiences absolutely positive!“

  15. D DANILO
    Great sauna

    “I really liked the place. I went there in a not crowded day (Tuesday), but I found some guys to play with. The pool is very big, but the water is cold.“

  16. J Jad

    “Amazing place, hot and hot and hot place, I will back again.“
