Filigree ornaments and wall paintings make the Art Nouveau building so charming. At 120 years old, the Müllersche Volksbad is the oldest indoor swimming pool in the city. Here you can take a sauna in the Roman-Irish sweat bath. The body is heated slowly and in several stages in warm and hot air rooms. It gets really hot in the Finnish sauna with colored lights. To cool off, you can go into the semi-circular shower, from which cold water sprays upwards from bottom to bottom. Afterwards, you can relax in the open-air courtyard or in the relaxation cabins. If you work up an appetite, you can get fresh pasta in the café. Tuesdays and Fridays until 3 p.m. are ladies’ days in the sauna. Corona measures: The 3-G rule applies, and a mask must be worn in the entrance area and in the changing rooms. The minimum distance must be maintained in the sauna and the number of people is limited. The steam bath is out of service. Müllersches Volksbad, Rosenheimer Strasse 1, 81667 Munich

The Hamam Anatolia in Obergiesing offers an oriental excursion. The bath welcomes guests with Turkish tea and ayran. Afterwards, visitors can enjoy a traditional bathing ceremony with washing, sweating, bathing and relaxing. Bathing in the Hamam is done by scooping water from a marble basin with a copper bowl and pouring it over the body. The dimly lit vault with mosaics and ornaments on the walls also allows you to visually immerse yourself in Arabic culture. If you want, you can book a massage. One of the highlights is the soap foam massage, where the masseuses cover the guests with a cloud of foam. The rose oil massage with essential oils is also popular. The Hamam does not have any customer parking, so it is better to travel by public transport. Corona measures: Instead of the steam bath, there is currently a dry sauna. A mask must be worn in the hallways and corridors as well as in the dry areas. The minimum distance must be maintained in the lounge and relaxation areas as well as in the sauna and hammam. Visitors must bring their own bathing shoes. Prior registration with contact details is necessary; the 3-G rule applies for entry. Hamam AnatoliaWirtstrasse 1b, 81539 Munich
