After a tough day of shopping, what can possibly be better than a sauna, jacuzzi and an organic fruit juice? Well possibly all that plus the possibility to work out outside and work on your tan in the middle of the city. And there you have it – Centralbadet, just off Drottninggatan. Approaching the entrance you are greeted by a statue of Triton, son of Poseidon, blowing his conch shell, and that is about all the action you’ll get in here.
This place is fantastic – the moment I set foot in the locker room with its dark wood closets my pulse goes down. The newly redecorated, yet classic, pool area is heaven for a pair of legs that has been running around the city for a few hours. There are many different kinds of small pools and saunas here and just upstairs is a larger pool for swimming. On the roof of the building there is a large space with sunbeds and gym equipment that is open in the summer. I usually go for the sunbeds, but that’s just me :).
They also have a huge selection of massage and spa treatments. You need to book these in advance.
