Bathhouse Babylon Cologne

You will find our little corner of paradise which has been in the midst of a hectic city for the past 30 years in close proximity to the Friesenplatz and only 5 minutes away from the Ehrenstraße. 
 On over 1400 square meters we offer everything for those that love wellness, sauna and cruising.


Our spacious bar with its open fireplace invites you to relax, linger and enjoy. Here you will find a wide selection of refreshing beverages from soft drinks, fresh fruit juices, various Scavi & Ray wines, Hugo or Aperol spritz (a mix of white wine and Aperol) to various cocktails and coffees and a daily cake assortment of confectionery pious.

We have also look after for your physical wellbeing. From small snacks such as toast, bruschetta, baked camembert, various soups and fresh salads through to pasta and pizza, there is something for every taste. And on hot sunny days, our “grill master” will throw on the grill for you.

Outdoor swimming pool

From our bar, you have direct access to our spacious inner courtyard terrace with a Mediterranean flair.

As the only sauna in the Cologne scene, you can cool off in our 10-metre swimming pool or you can forget your everyday worries and let yourself be pampered by the sun out on the sun deck.

Our outdoor pool area becomes the Babylon Island between May and September. Here, you will be spoiled by our “hot” pool boys with cool cocktails and drinks. And on sunny weekends it’s BBQ time in the Babylon – we throw on our grill for you.


You will find our dry sauna for up to 50 people at the end of the pool. Through the panoramic window, you have a unique view out to the outdoor swimming pool area.

On Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays our “infusion master” will make you sweat with our tried and tested infusions. Of course after the infusions, we will serve complimentary alternating fresh fruits, refreshments or sweets.

Our relaxation room located right next to the dry sauna invites you to unwind and relax. Also from there, you will directly reach our outdoor swimming pool area.


You can find our steam sauna in the basement. It is the largest in Cologne and offers exciting opportunities with its own maze and various areas – and temperature ranges. Having a sauna here is pure indulgent and cruising.

Located just prior to our steam sauna is our large Roman-style jacuzzi. A welcoming place to relax alone or to enjoy together. From here, you can reach our cruising area.
