Therme Erding is the largest thermal bath complex in Europe at 145,000 square metres (36 acres). It is 30 minutes northeast of Munich by car and is visited by around 4000 people every day.
The baths contain four distinct areas: the waterslide area "Galaxy", the "Thermenparadies", the "Vital-Oase" and the "Saunaparadies".
The waterslide park "Galaxy" is covered by a 25-metre high metal dome, which can be half-opened in the summer months. There are 20 waterslides, one of which is the longest tube slide in Europe at 360 meters long. The slides are divided into three different levels of difficulty: "Family", "Action", and "X-Treme".
The interior is covered by a glass dome which can be half-opened in the summer months.
The interior is stands out, with a 1,450 square metres spa pool, pool bar, grotto, waterfall, neck showers, massage jets, Jacuzzi beds and current channels. Quiet rooms, a massage area, health baths, a steam room, bio-sauna, children's area and a restaurant are all located around the pool. The thermal garden is home to an outside pool which joins directly to the large indoor spa pool, with massage beds as well as sulfur mineral springs, a sandy beach, beach bar, beach volleyball pitch, and outdoor slides.
The Vital-Oase is available only for the use of those aged 16 or over. There is a spa pool with a pool bar, a sulfur mineral spring, clothed saunas, quiet rooms and a restaurant. In September 2008, three health pools were opened, which are enriched with minerals from the Dead Sea, such as selenium and calcium.
The nudist sauna complex, available only for the use of those over the age of 16, offers 25 different saunas, two steam rooms, and multiple beauty treatment parlours in an area of 26,900 square metres. The Saunaparadies's main building lies beneath a 60-by-40-metre large glass roof which can be fully opened in nice weather. In this building there are jacuzzi beds, a 1,200 square metres,34 °C swimming pool, whirlpools, neck showers, and other outside pools. The outer pool is surrounded by three external saunas and the sauna lake. Of the rest, seven saunas are located in the main building, along with a meditation pool and a ladies-only area. The main building is connected by the Palazzo Veneziano to the old sauna area, which houses both saunas and another outer pool with jacuzzi beds. In the sauna garden there are two other saunas.
