The turn-of-the-century bath house known as Müllersches Volksbad - translated as Mueller's Public Baths - was made possible by a generous donation by the man for whom the pool is named.
Built from 1897-1901, this amazing building is really a mix of a number of different styles. South German Baroque architecture tends to dominate though the keen eye will also recognize Roman thematic elements as well as Art Nouveau components on the exterior of the building. Inside, the Art Nouveau décor is magnificent and has stood the test of time. It's easy to see why this spectacular pool was lauded as the grandest and most modern of all baths in Germany, and is today Munich’s most splendid and one of Europe’s most beautiful indoor swimming pools. Swimmers will be hard pressed to find another setting like this.
Taking a dip in the Müller'sches Volksbad allows you to experience bathing culture in the original sense. This spa in the more than 100 years old Art-Nouveau building equipped with state-of-the-art technology is an aesthetic experience. Relax, enjoy and pamper yourself with a massage.
