What to do if you’re at the Baltic sea in winter times, the wind is blowing hard and it is really cold outside? A good idea is to look out for a spa and a sauna to relax and get some heat back that you lost at the chilly beach. If you’re in the triangle of Lübeck, Fehmarn and Kiel, a visit to the Ostsee-Therme in Scharbeutz, Germany may be right for you.
It is located in Scharbeutz directly at the sea and very close to Timmendorfer Strand. It is mainly a big dome with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool and an attached sauna area. When you take a look at the buildings you see that it is already a bit old and needs renovation.
Therefore the prices are quite high but you can still have a lot of fun. On top of the building there is a sauna where you can sit and watch at the sea, in front of it there is another one pretty close to the promenade where you’ll have good views on the beach and people passing by.
And best of all – you can exit the spa and cross over to a nude beach directly in front of it. Especially in winter times when you have to cross a lot of people (dressed in warm coats and with scarfs, caps and gloves) only wearing a bathrobe this is absolutely a funny and unusual situation.
