Sjællandsgade Badet Copenhagen – Bathtubbin' in Copenhagen

"Sjællandsgade Badet" is a relic from before Copenhagen got running water. There you can have a real bath or a nightly sauna experience that is... amazing.

Copenhagen is an old city, which means we have a lot of old buildings here. If you have been in one of the older apartments, you know... If not, I will tell you: most apartments have a shower the size of a phone booth. This is primarily because the buildings were there before running water was available. So we have the smallest bathrooms in the world - but at least we have showers. (Or most of us do - 25.000 apartments are still without a shower).

But in Nørrebro, they have kept a pearl from before we all got running water and went shower mad. They have kept Sjællandsgade Badet. Badet means The Shower and Sjællandsgade is the street it is located on. It was shut down, but now it is open again.

Do one of two on a boring rainy summerday:

- Go and plunge into the bathtubs with golden feet. Lay here and just enjoy what a nice, long, hot bath can do for you. Depending on the day, it's divided by sex or mixed.

-The "gus" Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. A traditional sauna experience, where they pour different oils on a hot stone to give you different experiences when the steam hits you. It lasts for an hour, and is normally 3 sittings of 15 minutes. This... is... amazing. Luckily they are set at night, so you don't miss out on sunlight. These are popular, so make sure to buy tickets. Available for mixed and divided sexes.
