Thermal water for everyone!

Whether you head here after work or come for a leisurely dip on Sunday morning, the Bagno Popolare is open nearly every day of the year and is free of charge.
For thousands of years people have been bathing in the hot springs at the bend of the Limmat river. At some point in time, however, the thermal water was not accessible to the public anymore, instead serving as an exclusive setting for the wealthy elite. The Bagni Popolari Association’s goal is to make the thermal baths available to the general public again. The Association installs temporary open-air thermal water baths throughout the heart of Baden’s spa district for all to enjoy, free of charge. The water is hot enough to take a dip in the pop-up baths in winter, too, when the air is cold outside.

Tip: Bring extra-warm clothing for when you get out of the water.

News: Bad zum Raben

As early as 1299, the "Raben" (raven) is cited in writing as the first bath inn in Baden. Its baths remained operational for 700 years until the inn was closed down. In the exhibition KÖRPER.BADEN.FLOW (BODY.BATHS.FLOW), artists stage their view of the body and relaxation in the bathrooms of the former "Raben" and allow social relationships to blur when immersed in the fresh, natural thermal water. Three different bathing rooms – an individual, family and social bath - allow you to experience a journey of your own body back to three typical epochs of Baden bathing culture all while being immersed in the warm water. Cloakroom and showers are available.

The large thermal pop-up bath "Bagno Popolare" is closed for the time being due to construction work. Instead, the stunning “Blueme-Bädli” on the terrace of the Atrium-Hotel Blume is the perfect place to enjoy the thermal water in the open air.

How to get there

The Bagno Popolare has no fixed location. It is currently closed due to construction work for the new thermal baths. The Association is working hard to find a new spot so that its baths will be open to the public again soon.
