Hammams, Spas, Steams and Saunas

in Zurich

One of the nicest things to do anytime of year in Zurich is to visit a hammam, spa, steam or sauna. You can enjoy an afternoon (or maybe even a day?) of total relaxation – a great antidote to the stresses of everyday life. It really feels special visiting one in Winter when there’s snow on the ground and everywhere outside is cold and grey, and as you step through the door you feel the warmth hit you.

So if you’re looking from an escape from the cold or simply feel in need of a Hammam, Spa, Steam or Sauna in Zurich hopefully this little guide will help!

Please note different rules regarding nakedness in each of the Spas listed below – so please ask before booking if you want to check.

Hamman at Patumbah Park

The Hammam at the Patumbah Park is located in the Seefeld area of Zurich. The interior of the building is made of natural materials, with a floor of Jurassic limestone and the whole feeling is a little bit “Mediterranean”. The rooms are arranged to follow the normal Hammam ritual  – the dressing room, followed by the warm-up, the warm and hot rooms and finally the relaxation room.

The hammam is open from 10am – 10pm (though check website for holiday openings) and there are separate opening days for men and women. For men it’s Saturdays and Mondays and women Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
