The Roman bath ruins, some remains of ancient thermal baths, are located below the Friedrichsbad. Here you can experience ancient bathing culture and fascinating construction techniques firsthand. Underfloor heating and wall heating, a so-called Hypokaustensystem, are available for viewing. Man-sized walls separate the individual areas from each other. Hard to believe that these are the simpler soldiers baths. The better baths for the senior military of the Romans are buried between the collegiate church and the market square. Black paving stones reveal the outlines.
The showcases and steles in the passage to the Caracalla Therme, located between the Museum of Roman Bath Ruins and the Thermal Bath, are also very informative. Everyday objects and portraits show the habits of the bathing culture. And it´s carved in stone, that women already wore bikinis … or was it more like a dream of the soldiers stationed here?
