Dronning Dorothea’s Bath

Unwind in Dronning Dorothera’s Bath, while being pampered with a relaxing body massage or a facial treatment. Feel like a king or queen and enjoy the many baths and saunas.

A visit to Dronning Dorothea’s Bath is a perfect way to spend an afternoon in pleasurable self-indulgence. You will also have the opportunity to experience an old spa tradition, which started in Kolding as early as the beginning of the 20th century. At the time, the spa was not used for self-indulgence and relaxation, but as a treatment for children with the disease tuberculosis.

The spas had their days of glory throughout Europe in the mid-19th century, where these baths were an important part of maintaining a healthy body.


On tour in Dronning Dorothea’s Bath

When you arrive at the spa you are provided with a bathrobe and a towel, so you do not need to bring this. There is a changing room in the lowest section, where you can change to the swimwear you brought and the provided bathrobe. Afterward, you are ready to experience the queen’s spa. 

There are several different baths and pools for you to try. We would recommend you start with a cold shiver in the cold-water pool which is only 14 degrees. After this, it is nice to be able to immerse in the relaxation pool or scented pool which is 35-36 degrees warm. This shift, between the cold and hot water, is especially good for increasing blood circulation in the body.

If you are dealing with skin problems, you should jump into the salt bath, which has the same salt content as the Dead Sea. This is especially known to have a soothing effect on psoriasis.

You can experience saunas and spas both outdoors and indoors. The outdoor sauna and spa have a great view of the lake, Slotssøen, and Koldinghus. If you prefer an indoor sauna, one of them has changing lights that affect your mood. If you are more into steam, you can step into the steam bath with a special steam fountain in the middle. Inside the steam bath, you have the opportunity to cool down and then quickly be heated up again by the high temperature and humidity.

Several times a year spa days and evenings are organized, where you can experience the bath combined with e.g. Meals, drinks, and special themes.
