Treat yourself: these saunas, steam baths, and spas are perfect for recharging your batteries and pampering body and soul.
Hammam & Spa Oktogon Bern
Just a few metres under the Parliament Building’s panorama terrace in Bern’s city centre lies the oriental oasis Hammam & Spa Oktogon Bern. The beautiful listed building owes its name to its original octagonal shape. On the inside, there are various steam and cleansing rooms, a warm pool, and a relaxation area spread over four floors.
Relax body & soul
Bernaqua at the Westside shopping mall isn’t only a water park, there is also a large spa with all kinds of treatments and services. How about a Thai massage or a Roman-Irish bathing ritual, for example? The sauna landscape with its Kneipp basins is both relaxing and energizing and gives your immune system the boost it needs for the upcoming season. There is also an area at Bernaqua that is reserved for women.
Relaxation and romance
Solbad & Spa Schönbühl

And the large sauna landscape has everything spa fans could ask for – the earth&fire sauna is a special highlight, with the heat being provided by a cosy fireplace.
Get away from the everyday hustle and bustle
