Celebrate at aquabasilea

Whether it's a birthday party, bachelorette party or company celebration, no matter what the occasion is.

We organize your individual event that will be remembered for a long time!



Also beyond our opening hours there is the possibility to rent the seperately separated area on the second floor of our bathing world. You are directly at the water fun, with a great view over our whole adventure pool. From 10 p.m. on, we'll really let it rip - if you wish, even with a DJ playing your party guests' favorite songs and a bartender who can conjure up the drinks of your choice!


If you prefer it relaxed and dignified, you can create your own sauna program with private themed infusions and your favorite music.


For more exclusive moments of well-being you can rent our closed "Glass-Room" in the spa area. Toast with each other over an aperitif and enjoy a variety of spa treatments. From cosmetic treatments to short massages for the group, everything is bookable.


You want to be enchanted by the oriental charm? Then plan your next event in our Hamam. Experience very exclusively the Far Eastern bathing customs with various steam baths and traditional cleansing rituals. Additional SPA treatments such as rhassoul, a henna painter or shisha for the group can also be booked.


You want some snacks, a menu or a buffet? No problem! Together we will decide what your mood is.

We will be happy to advise you. Write us in a mail to with your wishes and ideas,
so we can create an offer for your unforgettable day.

We look forward to celebrating with you at aquabasilea!
