Therme Erding, Europe’s second largest spa complex, offers everything you need from a holiday under one roof (or a series of roofs to be exact). Whether you wish to relax or enjoy an exciting family break, there is so much for people of all ages to do within the 185,000 square meters of slides, pools and treatment rooms.
The German resort has recently opened the brand new Hotel Victory, offering rooms that range from Venetian-style Serenissima Suites to the plush Yacht Cabins that make you feel like you have stepped on board an ocean-going vessel. With new restaurants and luxurious room options, the hotel provides an opportunity to stay poolside and make the most of your break at Therme Erding.
But what else can you get up to? Here are four main areas within this vast watery world.
As you may expect, there are so many areas in which you can unwind in and out of the water at Therme Erding. With a spa area, tropical spa area and vitality oasis on offer, you will always be able to find a quiet corner in which to take it easy. Pool options include Jacuzzis and whirlpools, thermal waters, swim-up bars and lazy rivers. Out of the water, there’s the chance to indulge in a massage or other treatment in the various different rooms available. The ‘Sinnesreise’ (sensory journey) allows you to experiment with how different coloured light affects your mood, whilst the infrared cabins use radiators filled with lava sand to heat you up gradually to help speed up your metabolism and cause your muscles to relax.
If you wish to venture outside, the Summer Paradise is the perfect place to take it easy on a sunny day. The man-made beach features cabanas, loungers, hammocks and chairs where you can chill out under a palm tree with cocktail in hand.
New Wave Pool
As well as the Victory Hotel, Therme Erding has also recently opened a new wave pool adjacent to the accommodation. As well as the main pool, which is frequently interrupted by gentle waves, there are plenty of places to take the weight off your feet, both indoors and outside. Joining the two areas together is the crazy river which takes you on a journey down multiple levels and through turbulent and calm waters. If it all gets too much, though, the can find respite amongst the bubbling jets on one of the four islands. If you are enjoying a family trip, the children can splash away in the outdoor kids’ pool whilst you relax in the beautiful garden area.
If you’ve had enough of taking it easy, or you want to get the pulse racing before you attempt to chill out, the Galaxy is the place to go. Here you will find a myriad of indoor and outdoor slides which are classified as either ‘family’, ‘action’ or ‘x-treme’. At the ‘family’ end of the spectrum, there’s a range of rides for the little ones, whilst the ‘action’ section includes the Space Glider, which propels you up and down slopes inside a rubber ring. If you want to get ‘x-treme’, though, try the Kamikaze – a slide with a 60-degree incline and a 13-metre drop.
All that excitement is sure to leave you with a healthy appetite and luckily there are some great places to refuel. As well as the sit-down options, there are various bars, a creperie, a frozen yoghurt stand and a place dedicated to the most German of snacks – currywurst. For main meals, the two best options are the Hafen Restaurant (part of the new Hotel Victory) and the plush Restaurant Empire. The former is a maritime-themed buffet where diners sit in booths shaped like boats and help themselves to freshly prepared local and seasonal dishes. The latter is a more elegant affair offering a la carte options from around the world that include Florentine steak, Irish salmon and Austrian apricot dumplings.
There’s so much to experience at Therme Erding that it is impossible to mention it all in one blog post. If you are interested in taking a trip to this giant German spa resort, contact us today for more information about what you can look forward to.
