Turkish-style steam baths, hammams, have become very popular in recent years. This one in the cellars of the Volkshaus boasts some arty concrete architecture. But you come here to relax, right? In keeping with oriental traditions there is a hot stone in the centre of the open space to relax on - niches to wash and rub your skin, a sauna, a footbath, and more are grouped around it. Remember that in Switzerland you usually use saunas sans clothing and naked areas for both sexes are common. There is also a relax area and a café. A variety of massages and treatments is available.
