Attraction details
Owner description: The KAISERBRÜNDL For CENTURIES THE KAISERBRÜNDL has been regarded as the most distinguished and elegant bathing establishment in Vienna. The entrance leads into a friendly restaurant, which is open to dressed visitors free of charge, independent of the uninterrupted activities in the sauna. It has become a regular meeting place for good food and drinks already early in the afternoon. From there, you can enter one of the probably most beautiful and unique sauna for men in the world: three floors offer fitness, sauna, bio-sauna, steam bath, massage, frescobar, videos and much more. In the centre between Kärntner Straße (St. Stephens, U1, U3) and Parkring (Stadtpark, Hotel Marriott). Street entrance (on the right, green door)

Yes the Kaiserbruendl is a bit hard to enter (but just push the buzzer t the front door) but not obscure--I had read reports saying that one had to go in by the gift shop etc. And. I had read reviews saying that the staff were unfriendly etc. that was not my experience at all. I went in late afternoon and found staff and other guests friendly. It was a somewhat older crowd at that time. And yes it was fun to explore, admire the Moorish architecture and the oil paintings and feel like one was back in old Vienna (but with a modern twist). Great spot to find.

I had a great visit here yesterday - definitely recommended. Went at around 5pm and stayed for two hours. Easy to get lost, but that is a lot of the fun. Good atmosphere and what surprised me the most, given that it was middle of the week, early evening, is that it was very busy. All ages, but mainly younger folk.

This old-fashioned bath house is camper than a row of tents, but once you find your way there, it is fun to get lost inside with the strange locker system, arches and labyrinthine layout. The 'meals' seem to be all mince- based but there was a good selection of beers there too. I went on a Friday around 8pm, it was steadily busy, but not full to overflowing and what the staff lacked in charm, (and strangely for Austria, English) the friendly and welcoming customers made up for.

I've been here twice since November 2014 and never get tired of going back. The entry fee (20 Euros) may seem steep, but I think it's reasonable.

On my first visit, the attendant showed me how to work the locker system. It's not difficult - just not what most people are used to. There are several floors, and it's easy to get lost if you don't know where you are going. But once you get your bearings, it's quite an incredible place to wander.

There are two saunas with differing temperatures. One of them has a regular time when there is no entry - just look for the sign on the glass door. The other is open all the time.

There are also plenty of showers - all communal, of course!

The steam room is quite nice and can hold a decent number of guys.

Everything is kept clean, and most people are friendly. Even if you don't speak German, you can still enjoy yourself.

Several suggestions:
- Wear sandals (I always do)
- Bring extra towels (you only get one when you arrive)
- Bring a bottle of water (no water fountains)

the place is nice, visited from many men... There are 2 sauna rooms and 1 steam room. The saunas are with different temperatures. There is also 1 pool with temperature about 20C - good for cooling down after the steam room.

The place is relativly clean, but deffinitly not dirty as you can see in the reviews below. I recomend it if you wanna have some relaxing in the SPA part, some nice snack in the FOOD part or have a quick sex in the DARK part.
