1. Vabali Spa – Everything you need

Let’s get right to the point: The Vabali is the best day spa in Berlin. The Balinese style looks great and the facilities are very well maintained and clean.

It’s also great to enjoy the garden of this day spa which is large enough to go for a stroll. If you want to grab some food or enjoy a smoothie you can sit down on the large terrace of the restaurant. It’s easy to lose track of time: Before you know it you have spent a full day in this spa in Berlin.

The Vabali is open from 9 in the morning until midnight. This is especially great for working people because it allows them to visit the spa after work and still have enough time to totally relax. Vabali is the best but also the most expensive day spa in Berlin. Depending on the time you have been in the Vabali, you will pay a different fee:

How to behave in a day spa – The usual house rules

For some people it might be the first time that you visit a spa. Others might be used to different rules because they only have been to spas and wellness centres outside of Berlin. To make sure you do not upset anybody, we’ve listed the most common house rules of spas in Berlin:

  • Silence: People visit day spas to relax so avoid loud conversations or calls.
  • Hygiene: In the sauna you should sit on a towel and avoid sweating on the surface
  • Food and drinks: In most day spas it’s not allowed to bring your own food and drinks
  • Photos: Logically enough it’s not allowed to take photos in the day spa
  • Alcohol: It’s not allowed to be drunk in the day spa: You are not in a techno-club after all.

2. Liquidrom – Music & Relaxation

Another great place to enjoy wellness in Berlin is the Liquidrom. This day spa is located close to Potsdamer Platz and offers 4 different saunas, several pools, steam baths and plenty of space to relax. The entrance is a bit cheaper than Vabali and it’s great that it’s open until 1AM during the weekends. But what we personally love the most about Liquidrom is how to combine relaxation with music.

Musical saltwater pool & DJ performances

The highlight of the Liquidrom is the musical saltwater pool. Visitors can enjoy both music and light shows while they are effortlessly floating in the saltwater. It’s an awesome experience. Once a week the Liquidrom even invites talented DJs to accompany you when you are floating in the pool. Maybe this is the perfect activity to get warmed up for a party night in Berlin?

Price: 20€ – 27,50€
Dress code: Naked in saunas, swim-clothes in the pools
Restaurant: Bar/restaurant

The Liquidrom spa is located close to Potsdamer Platz and can therefore be easily combined with a visit to the casino or a Christmas Market.

3. Meridian Spa – West of Berlin

The Meridian Spa is a bit further away from the center but definitely worth a visit. This day spa is located in the west of Berlin but it would only take you about 30 minutes from station Alexanderplatz. The highlight of the Meridian Spa is the large pool which allows you to swim inside and outside without leaving the water. This Berliner Spa is located in a shopping mall so you can easily combine it with an afternoon of shopping.

A day spa with many ways to relax

Besides the pool, the Meridian Spa offers plenty of steam baths and saunas: Eucalyptus sauna, sauna for women and Finnish sauna are just a few examples. Besides that there are steam baths, relaxing rooms and a large garden. The restaurant offers heathy drinks and tasty meals. One things most other day spas in Berlin are not offering is a fitness area. You can use the equipment as much as you want.

No need to be naked + Free child care

The Meridian Spa is one of the more expensive day spas in Berlin. On weekdays you pay 35€ for a day of relaxation and from Friday till Sunday you pay 45€. Unfortunately there are no flexible tickets for only 2 hours. If you do not necessarily like to get naked, the Meridian Spa got you covered: In this spa you do not have to get naked and are also allowed to wear bathing clothes. Another great thing for parents might be that this wellness center offers free child care.

Price: Full day for 35-45€
Dress code: Both naked and with bathing clothes
Restaurant: Yes
Fitness: Free

After visiting the Meridian Spa it’s very easy to also check out the Spandau Outlet for some clothes with large discounts.

4. Heaven Spa – Wellness hotel in Berlin-Mitte

The day spa in Berlin with the most central location is probably the Heaven Spa of the Radisson Blu Hotel. It is located directly next to the Berliner Dom, which is located on walking distance of Alexanderplatz and shopping mall Alexa. Although the spa is clearly smaller than the other spas in Berlin, it was crowned World’s Luxury Spa Award several years in a row.

Pool with 28 degrees water temperature

One of the best places inside the Heaven Spa is the pool with a water temperature of 28 degrees. This is perfect for both swimming or just relaxing and floating around. It’s not a very large pool but usually there are not many people in this wellness center so you will have space enough. Besides the pool you can enjoy a Finish sauna, a steam bath and several types of massages.

Cheaper than the other spas in Berlin

Tickets for the Heaven Spa start at 15€ already. This is cheaper than the other spas in this list. A full day costs 20€ during the week and 25€ during the weekend. Obviously we have to keep in mind that this spa cannot be combined to a Vabali with more than 10 different saunas. But if you just want to relax with your partner this place might also do. Alternatively you can also book a room and stay over in the Blue Radisson.

Name: Heaven Spa

Price: 15-25€
Dress code: Naked in the Whirlpool and Sauna

5. Vienna House Andel’s Berlin – Hotel in Lichtenberg

Lichtenberg might be a district in Berlin which you haven’t heard of, but it is located directly next to Friedrichshain. The Vienna House Andel’s Berlin can be reached by foot from station Landsberger Allee. The hotel itself is worth a visit but if you are looking to escape the hectic of Berlin, you should checkout the wellness area called SpaSphere. Although it is mostly used by guests of the hotel, you can also buy day-tickets if you are not staying in the hotel.

Quiet and peaceful wellness resort

The spa of the Vienna House Andel’s Berlin offers a whirlpool, three sauna’s (bio, classic and Finnish), a relaxing area inside and outside. Beside that I can speak from own experience that the massages are incredible and reasonable priced. Compared to some of the other spas in Berlin, the Vienna House is not crowded at all. We visited on a Saturday afternoon and were almost alone. This can be a benefit compared to places like Vabali, Meridian Spa and the Liquidrom.

After relaxing in the spa for a few hours, you should definitely have a drink in the famous SkyBar on the 14th floor of the Vienna House Andel’s Berlin.
