We are thinking about a spa day near the end of our vacation. It sounds like many people use spas in the Netherlands. Further, it looks like most of the spas are for both sexes and it appears they are naked spas.
It was a few years ago we visited this sauna. Yes it's a busy place; yes they are renovating and We have been there because it was a gift, in France in this kind of Institute you wear swimming suits for hygienical reasons
It was a few years ago we visited this sauna. Yes it's a busy place; yes they are renovating and Not cheap but good value when you spend the day.
Last week, I went to the most incredible sauna with a group of girlfriends. She loved it. For me, being naked those first times in public, were, once I got over the fact that I was totally na ked in publicincredibly liberating.
After all, if you come from a culture where public nudity is not the norm, it can take some screwing of your courage to the sticking place to relinquish your clothing. To say nothing of relaxing to any meaningful degree while wearing only your birthday suit in a room full of similarly un attired strangers. But I mean this seriously and un-ironically: if you have never been to a Dutch spa, you are missing out.
The building is so beautiful and great to look around! The staff were amazing and food here was nice and fair priced for what it was! The spa is a naked one and it was my first visit to a nude spar but it was great!
If you can muster some nude courage among strangers, then hit a soothing Dutch sauna. Expatica offers insight into the group Dutch sauna experience and a list of saunas near you. The Finnish invented the sauna 2, years ago and despite the popularity of saunas in hotels and spas worldwide, going to the sauna on evenings or weekends with company is a typically northern European activity.
We did not discover the Dutch Wellness Centers until we had been in the Netherlands for a year. My first visit was when my best friend visited in March and we did a girls night. Since then it has been a go-to favorite for date nights and girls nights. Dutch Wellness Centers are facilities full of hot and cold pools, saunas, steam rooms, treatment options and typically a restaurant or two.
Read on to find out how it went and remember, what happens in a Dutch Spa, stays in a Dutch spa I do not tell lies, I promise you. This episode will give you a glimpse into what a lot of my friends call 'Heather's World'.
Public saunas can be found throughout the Netherlands and Flanders, both in major cities and in smaller municipalities. These saunas are called Sauna, Thermen, Thermae or Spa and can be regarded as public bath houses. Since every Dutch and Flemish house has a bath room these public saunas are a luxury, not a necessity.
