The oldest and most distinguished bathing establishment in Vienna
The Centralbad (today: Kaiserbründl) is generally regarded as the oldest and most distinguished bathing-establishment in Vienna. The unusually deep well of the building itself was already in use in Roman times. This building structure formed part of a separate fortified small suburb outside Vienna until 1156. The first document mentioning a "padstubn" (bathing room) in this house dates back to 1369.
Between 1887-1889, the house was built and the interior received in 1894 its present look. During the late 19th century the Centralbad (then the only bath in the city centre) gained great social reputation. Simon Baruch, the founder of the public bathing system of New York, called the Viennese Bath "the most substantial, elegant and complete bath in the world." Among its regular guests was the Archduke Ludwig Viktor of Austria, who was famous for his love of male beauty.
Today, Kaiserbründl with it's largely unchanged interior has been developed into one of the most famous Gay Saunas in the world.
