I visited Mühlhausen the first time and I was excited. This year I returned with my wife Elizabeth. She shared my love to this historic town immediately. One of the highlights of this visit was to spend a few hours in the "Thüringentherme" the local spa.
This map may be of some help to find this attraction. After running a few times in circles through Mühausen we found the place on our own.
Underground parking is below the spa and easy access by an elevator is provided. Don't get fooled when you see a sign with the word "frei" at the entrance to the parking. It does not mean free but vacant!
When we entered the reception area where you purchase the tickets Elizabeth rushed immediately to bathing suits which were on display. The advertising said that wearing them your complete body would be tanned and that they do not become transparent. I offered her to get one but she rejected that because of the sizes. Now she is regretting this decision every day.
As almost in all spas you receive with your ticket a key with a chip. This allows you to purchase snacks etc. in the spa area without carrying cash.
In previous years I lost cash in the whirlpools or during enjoying the numerous jets when I visited other spas. For that reason I like this system. Only make sure that you have enough cash with you because credit cards are still not accepted everywhere in Germany.
So please be prepared and enjoy hours of fun by sportive activities and doing something to improve your health.
After taking the mandatory shower we entered the spa area. Elizabeth who loves to swim lengths was happy to see that the main pool was designed to allow that.
We could only see a few people and children in the whole area. Unemployment is very high in and around Mühlhausen because many companies had to close after the unification of Germany and tourism is not as good promoted as it could be. I compare Mühlhausen with famous "Rothenburg ob der Tauber", but without all the gift and souvenir shops which target mainly tourists. Mühlhausen is still original.
For little kids who attend one of the offered swimming lesson however it is great to have so much space for them. They took all advises from their instructor serious and followed them. A separate pool with a small waterside is provided in addition for the little ones. They must not use the main pool.
The little ones and their instructors are getting ready for their lesson. The first step is to get them adapted to the water.
The kids pay attention and love it in the warm clean water. None of them was afraid and screamed.
A play pool is provided where kids can have fun
This pool is connected to the outdoor pool
In the background of the picture on the right side you can see the ":Strandbar", a restaurant.
We used our keys to have some food and cold drinks. My spaghetti Bolognese were delicious and after I became addicted to mineral water two small bottles of that.
Whenever you have a chance to try pop made by "Thüringer Waldquell" try it. They are all almost diet and available in different natural flavors. I almost too a few bottles home to Canada. Another Thuringian company offers a cola which is not so sweet as the US-brands and many people - me included - prefer that. Just be adventurous and try something different when you are in Europe.
We have read on a posted sign that a major attraction in the main pool will start in a few minutes. Powerful waves will be produced for a short time. If you are not a good swimmer or have smaller children with you, please check first wether it is suitable.
The teenagers had fun fooling around when the waves started. They were the only ones who were at this time in the spa.
Elizabeth had fun too. She was turned over a few times. But soon she was swimming like a dolphin through the powerful waves.
