What awaits you

Phoenix in Essen is situated at the end of the pedestrian zone in Essen city centre, not far from the central station and the Shopping Center on Limbecker Platz. It is housed in a white building complex, right next door to the GOP Variete Theater.

Phoenix first opened its doors in Essen in 2000 and is the largest of our saunas.
Located on the former site of an ironmongers’, the 1600 square metre complex extends over three levels and is now where men and boys come to relax and enjoy themselves.

The one-time cinema arcade is now home to the Phoenix locker room, which is the first stop on your visit. The long line of 350 lockers offers plenty of space – but still comes close to capacity in the winter months.
Moving on from the locker room you will find yourself in our blue shower area, which you pass through to reach the ground floor.

This is where the Finnish sauna and our bistro with its sweeping bar are situated, alongside the swimming pool complete with counter-current system. 150,000 l of refreshing water wait to pick you up and cool you down after a session in the sauna.

The large staircase at the centre of the building takes you on your journey to the first floor and basement. It leads to the upper level, where you will find the Centro Delfino for massages, the TV lounge and plenty of opportunities for cruising.

At basement level you will find our impressively sized 4×4 m jacuzzi. Millions of tiny air bubbles flow through the water to create a thoroughly pleasurable experience.

Set amidst some fascinating architecture, you will also discover our hammam. A heated marble slab measuring 4x5m and atmospheric sounds take you away from it all to the ultimate form of relaxation.
The hammam is followed by our steam sauna. A constant temperature of 42°C and the beneficial steam revitalise you and your skin. The steam sauna is designed like a labyrinth, with a maze of small, narrow passageways, a little lighter on one side and more low-lit on the other.

Towards the rear of the basement level opposite the cold water pool is our sanarium.
A temperature of 46°C and a pleasant humidity encourage you to switch off and relax – ideal for anyone who likes it a little less hot from time to time.

Next to the sanarium you will find our caldarium which is rounds off the full sauna experience we have to offer. Heated marble benches on different levels and special fragrances create the perfect setting in which to take a little time out or combine relaxation and cruising.

We hope you have a relaxing visit to your Phoenix in Essen.
Stay healthy!
