XL Sauna & Lounge – Saarbrücken, Germany

I am going to make an exception in this post about the XL Sauna & Lounge in Saarbrücken, Germany. I visited here around 2 years ago and have since still cannot stop thinking about this place. I remember it was so peaceful, yet erotic in a fun way. Even though there were not many people during a Tuesday – It was fun with the ones who were around.

This a 5 star sauna. As expected for a German gay bathhouse, this place is super clean and highly maintained. All areas were sparkling clean and smelled good.

The wet sauna is where the action is on quite evenings. It is a nice size, with interesting engaging maze elements. But if you are looking for high velocity action, check the Saturday themed nights and the regular busy Sundays – these are the times most visited by the local crowd. During those times and special events,  the entire place is full of action, so I have been told. Saturdays and Sundays are the times with most visitors as can be seen here below, courtesy of Google Maps.

In oppose to other Saunas, that tend to use dark colors such as black and sexy red designs, the designer of this place really went for a holistic approach of mindfulness and relaxation. Colors are soft, natural with grays and whites. This color combination gives this place a more “high class” feel, when compared to the most commonly used “sleazy” setting.

The XL Sauna & Lounge, in my opinion, has one of the best gay sauna experiences. The place is just an overwhelming surprise. So much attention to details.
But there is just one small issue of course… And that is… well… Saarbrücken.

Excuse me? Where the h$% is Saarbrücken?
Read about Saarbrücken

Saarbrücken is the capital and largest city of the state of SaarlandGermany. And for some reason, it has a beautiful beautiful sauna, that still resonates in my memory, even 2 years after the first and last visit. Since then – I had set myself a target – to make sure to return to this City – despite all challenges.

Why is it a challenge to get to Saarbrücken?

The city’s small airport cannot support many flights and therfore prices are steep if you wish to arrive by air. You can, of course, fly anywhere near there and just take a train, or ride a car, but that kinda complicates things if you are not living in Germany. Distance from nearby hubs are, well, not very short journeys. You will need to drive 3 hours from Brussels, 2 hours from Frankfurt or 1 hour to drive from Luxembourg – which is what I did.

Firstly, Saarbrücken is not a big city. This means entry to this sauna is fairly priced. Depends on the day and time prices range from 10 to 16 which is far less than the big capital city sauna.
