The local thermal waters are said to have mineral-based healing properties and a natural temperature of 65 degrees Celsius (149 Fahrenheit). The same water is used at the city’s geothermal power plant. Don’t worry, though, at the spa the water is treated and maintained at a pleasant 34 degrees Celsius (93 Fahrenheit).

There are two distinct areas at Therme Erding. First is the family-friendly, swimsuit-required Tropical Spa and Water Park. This erlebnisbad (adventure pool) consists of a large spa pool area, a wave pool and numerous water slides. The second area is the textile-free (nude) Vitality Oasis (also called the Vital Therme) only accessible to those 16 and older, which has a massive series of spa pools and numerous saunas.

When you enter the facility, you will be given a wristband that opens your assigned locker and can be used for any charges at the restaurants or bars. You can pay your total bill via credit card before you leave. The vast locker room has changing cubicles for privacy. Don your swimsuit and make sure everyone is wearing their wristband. You will need to tap it on the entry turnstile for the different areas.

If are heading to the swimsuit-required spa and water park, I suggest you stash the rest of your stuff, including towel and phone, in the locker before following the blue arrows. If you are heading to the textile-free (nude) spa, then put your robe or towel over your swimsuit, wear some flip-flops, bring a book or a friend, and follow the red arrows.

Enjoy exploring this huge indoor tropical oasis. The water park area boasts 10 big tube slides, plus a smaller play area perfect for little kids. There is also an outdoor slide area that is closed in the winter. Near the wave pool you’ll find access to the heated outdoor spa circuit, plus loungers and a swim-up bar. Across the facility is the spa area where you can take in a facial mud mask, soak in the thermal waters, enjoy the themed saunas, or float in the warm outdoor pool.
