Beer Spas in Prague and the Czech Republic
As the birthplace of Pilsner, it’s not surprising that beer is a major part of Czech culture. The Czech Republic consumes more beer per capita than any other country in the world, a badge of honor that its citizens wear proudly. And if you’re headed to Prague, you’ll find that beer is even cheaper than water.
Aside from crossing monastery breweries, scenic beer gardens, and underground cellar pubs off your Prague beer bucket list, there’s one more attraction you might want to consider. A relaxing day at a beer spa in Prague.
If spending hours soaking in a tub of traditional Pilsner sounds like paradise, you’re not alone. Thousands of tourists come to the Czech Republic to drink and bathe in beer. But despite what it sounds like, a beer spa treatment does not consist of submerging yourself into a vat of pure pilsner.
Beer extracts, such as hops and yeast, are added to a tub filled with hot water. These ingredients are said to offer a variety of health and relaxation benefits, such as detoxification, hydration, and improved circulation. The average treatment lasts about a half hour to an hour, and the best part – you can drink as much beer as you want during the spa session. Some beer spas may add other perks like massage treatments, saunas, or light fare to snack on while you drink and soak. Most spas offer bathrobes, slippers, and free locker rentals for you to store your clothing.
It’s recommended that you don’t bathe for a few hours following your treatment to ensure you reap all the benefits. You can wear as much or as little clothing as you like- the rooms are private. Some people choose to wear their swimsuits (although you may want to give it a good wash afterwards).
