Sauna Aqua Azul – Quiet time

Is our Belgian weather ruining that nice sunny walk you planned? Perhaps an afternoon in the cellars of Aqua Azul will boost your mood. This public sauna is all about tranquility. You are not allowed to talk, only to relax in silence and serenity. Hidden in a small street in Patershol, you can escape the rain or if you just a need a breather.

In a very old renovated building, you can relax the whole afternoon or evening with two saunas, a Turkish bath, a discreet outside patio and a cosy library. You can order some healthy snacks or if you are in a decadent mood, a Belgian beer. The hosts show you around and explain how it all works. The changing rooms are equipped with lockers and there are separate rooms for women, men and couples. I used to resent sauna, but this place taught me to enjoy it so much and now I cannot get enough of it. Massages are also possible and are performed by a professional. If you want to disappear from the world for a few hours, this is the place to be.
