Winter escape @ Sachsen Therme spa

January is a tough month. It’s cold, the days are short and spring seems oh so far away.

Nevermind, let’s spend the day at Sachsen Therme spa 🙂

A short walk from the Paunsdorf Center (P.C.) shopping mall you’ll find this wonderful spa and waterpark complex. There’s a wave pool, heated outdoor pools, a normal indoor pool with diving platforms, kid-friendly areas, several sauna rooms of varying temperatures, a steam room, lots of hot-tubs, and a couple of excellent water slides.

There’s also several places to eat and drink and lots of zones to chill-out, read, or maybe sleep a bit. It’s warm and relaxing; the perfect antidote to a cold grey day in Leipzig.

Make sure you bring your own towel as (surprisingly) there isn’t a towel service. If you forget you’ll have to buy a towel in the shop. The cheapest was EUR12. Basic entry does not include the adult-only sauna area. Check out the price list. We paid EUR20 each for a full day including sauna. The sauna area is clothing optional. There’s also a massage service and beauty spa next to the main reception area.

We spent most of the day here recently on a wet and cold Monday. It was very relaxing and can highly recommend, we’ll certainly be going back again!

Opening hours are approximately 10:00 to 23:00 every day. Take tram 3 or 7, or the 90 Bus. Lots of parking outside main entrance, or you can use the giant car park at the nearby Paunsdorf shopping mall (ok maybe do some shopping there first).

  1. Man! Wished I read this earlier. Just returned from a weekend in -10degree Leipzig. The Sachsen Therme sounds like *just* the place we should have gone after walking 16k around the city. Cheers.
