Best Hot Springs In Europe

Nothing quite beats a nice, hot, relaxing soak in the tub. Well, almost nothing. Hot springs are actually fairly easy to find in Europe. That part of the world, along with Japan, have long accepted them as miraculous for treating common ailments. The natural minerals found in the pools can help reduce stress, relieve pain, increase blood circulation, and help you sleep. As if that isn’t reason enough, the warm water is also great for your skin. Dry or rough skin benefits marvelously from the high silica levels. For those suffering from psoriasis or eczema, a soak might be just what you need, as the sulfur found in the water helps relieve symptoms. If you’re ready to get your soak on, here are some beautiful hot springs to visit in Europe.

These picturesque hot springs are so beyond worth a visit. You can choose your level of pampering as well. There are three options available, each bringing another level of perks.

You can also add things like sauna access, drinks and fruit, and a private island for the higher end range. No matter which you package you decide on, you really can’t go wrong.

Meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish, this place has truly got to be seen to be believed. The beautifully stark white terraces are actually made of carbonate minerals that are left behind by flowing water. The result looks like swimming pools nestled into clouds or floating in pristine snow.

This place is soooo underground. Seriously. That’s part of the charm here as the rough-hewn stone walls make for some excellent ambiance. There are also above ground pools available. The springs first began to gain popularity in the 1700’s, but they had been in use much earlier than that. This particular spring is said to be wonderful for joint pain. You can visit all year round, except for January.

Do as the Romans and the Celts did over 2,000 years ago by taking a dip in these hot springs. The Roman influence here is evident in the large columns that flank one of the pools. There’s even a rooftop pool with gorgeous views of the city of Bath. Spa treatments are also available and there is a cafe on site, just in case you get hungry amid all that relaxation.
