Thermal Springs

I'd like to know about any thermal springs open to the public in and around Munich.

Hi Lisa,

there are quite a few public thermal springs around Munich, though none directly in Munich.

The two biggest ones are Therme Erding in Erding and Alpamare in Bad Tölz.

Both of them are not only thermal springs, but offer a whole bunch of attractions, excitement and relaxation.
You will find water slides, indoor waves, flow channels and plenty of different saunas and steam baths.

But of course you will also find different thermal pools ranging between 30°C and 36°C, as well as medically approved mineral pools and iodine pools.

Both thermal spas are well worth to spend the whole day and they are properly equipped with places to lie down and relax in between your "treatments" and off course, they have several restaurants and snack bars.

Therme Erding is located in the North of Munich, about 35 minutes drive with S-Bahn or by car; whereas the Alpamare in Bad Tölz is in the South, reachable via train in 50 minutes.

In my opinion, both thermal springs are equally nice, but the town of Bad Tölz has a lot more to offer than Erding, if you want to combine your trip to the swimming pools with some sightseeing.
