5 day spas and wellness temples in Vienna

1) Aux Gazelles Hammam

You don’t have to travel to Istanbul to visit a hammam. Aux Gazelles has a very luxurious one. It is not a traditional one, but women and men have separate areas of course (check the online timetable). When you enter, you receive a pestemal (cotton cloth) and kese (scratch glove). Book a peeling or a massage.

2) Therme Wien

Therme Wien in Oberlaa used to be a bit old-fashioned. But things changed after it reopened. Now it has several in and outdoor pools. They have various saunas, including a nude sauna and a Scandinavian one. Or if you like, a less hot Turkish bath. No children in the sauna area. Easy to get to with U1.
