Zülpich Roman Thermals- Museum of Bathing Culture
The Zülpich Roman Thermals invite you to a journey in time through 2000 years of bathing culture. At the heart of the museum are the original Roman Thermals, a ground monument of national importance. The thermals from 200 A.D. are the best-kept of their kind north of the Alps.
In addition to the bathing culture, you can also experience how bodily hygiene took place in the castles and towns of the Middle Ages and in the modern palaces. With the advent of the industrial revolution, not only were natural sciences put into use, but also the awareness of the necessity to use clean water to bathe, leading to numerous inventions. There is an informative concept made especially for children, which uses the senses: for example smelling the favourite fragrances of the Romans and playing like you would have in ancient times. Fun, museum rallies, and multi-media stations lead to the history of bathing culture playfully.
