Carolus Thermen Bad AachenMy wife and I recently spent a week in Aachen, Germany, and we had the absolute privilege of spending two consecutive days (Saturday and Sunday) at the Carolus Thermen Bad Aachen, more than six hours each day. I couldn’t wait to put this “trip report” together, since I had a spell of appreciation of the naked body while at the sauna area, and felt it necessary to share my emotions and experience.
The Thermen is stunning! I could use any adjective relating to “beautiful”, to “brilliant”... The architecture is amazing. The layout of the place is well thought out. The colours, the wholeness, the restaurants, the food, the cabins outside, the surrounding forest and park, the water features, the scent... ALL made our time there worth each and every cent to paid.
The Germans and social nudity. Truly refreshing. Truly breathtaking. It’s second nature and it’s relaxed. If the whole world had the philosophy towards the naked body as do the Germans, well, then the world would be a safer and a more rewarding place.
I have never seen so many attractive women in one place, as I did at the Thermen... and... to see them totally naked made it even more pleasing. The Germans, come young, come old, come slender, come large, come blonde, come brunette, have the right ingredients towards a happy social environment. The appreciation of their naked bodies symbolises a peaceful existence. The women dominantly have hairless pubic areas, both the young and the old. They walk around proudly and confidently throughout the sauna area. No shame. No guilt. No flesh to hide. And they greet you with a smile. One couple in particular, must have been models. The guy... tall, handsome, well toned and defined but not bulky... the girl... oh the girl... ABSOLUTELY a sight for sore eyes. Completely tanned from head to toe, completely smooth, gorgeous curves, gorgeous eyes. The type of girl you want to see over and over and over. And I saw her naked. THAT sight won’t disappear from my mind for a while. The girl made EVERY guy turn their heads as she passed by in the sauna, as she stepped into the pools, as she stepped into the cabins...
And what made it even more spectacular, was the ratio of women to men... almost equal. A socially stimulating experience shared by both sexes... what a nation! Twenty year old couples, thirty year old couples, and so on... all together, all naked, all minding their own business, but in the company of others... I loved those two days.
