Centre Thermal Yverdon-les-Bains
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This city spa and thermal baths is a convenient spot for an afternoon of lounging.
There are more scenic thermal baths in Switzerland, but what this one lacks in bucolic views it makes up for in convenience and a reasonably entry price. Just a short walk, drive or bus ride from Yverdon-les-Bains town centre, the Centre Thermal draws on the area’s famed sulphur-rich water to offer a complex comprising one indoor and two outdoor pools with all the massage jets, bubbles and gizmos you’d expect. Inside, the relaxation area offers three naked-friendly saunas (one just for women), hammam, Japanese bath, jacuzzi and tropical shower. There’s also a gym, treatment rooms providing massages and beauty treatments, plus a health suite where you can seek hydrotherapy for various ailments. The downside to this city-spa is that the pools can get pretty crowded, particularly on weekends. It also smells rather eggy, thanks to the sulphur, but that doesn’t seem to put anyone off.
