We have a new favorite place in Wiesbaden! Saturday we went to Thermalbad Aukammtal. We thought we would go swimming for an hour or so, and ended up spending about 4 hours there! Wiesbaden is renowned for its baths and spas, and this was our first visit to any of them. These are lovely warm thermal baths, with water temperature of 32˚C, or about 90˚F. The large pool inside connects to the large pool outside, so you can swim from one to the other through a plastic door without having to leave the nice warm water. It was great fun to swim outside in such amazingly warm water with steam rising off it. It was good that today was really pretty warm – in the 50s. So if you come visit, bring your swimsuit!
