TOMORROW Wellness Evening

Large gay sauna (1,500 m²) on three floors. Der Boiler features steam room, Finnish sauna, whirlpool, lockers, dark room, private cabins, plus Apple Mac stations, massage & spa area. Free lockers.

There’s a bar & café with outdoor terrace serving drinks and light meals including salads, sandwiches, coffee, beer etc, all very reasonably priced. We found the staff to be very friendly, welcoming, and good at their job of keeping the place clean.

Der Boiler attracts a very diverse client base of all ages and body types. The relaxed environment makes it quite possible to visit just to socialise with friends.

Discounts for students, early birds, and night owls. You may need to queue during party or festival weekends. U: Mehringdamm

  1. One of the best gay saunas in Europe!

    “Absolutely loved it! Plenty of space, plenty of guys mixed age and types. Loved the steam sauna and the labirynths of the dark room (though could be bigger). Come earlier during weekends - first time, I had to stand in huge queue on Sunday.“

  2. Only one gay sauna in Berlin!

    “So how come a huge (and ever expanding) city like Berlin has ONLY ONE gay sauna? The owner of this venue must be very happy about that.“

  3. Great

    “First time ever on a sauna but great experience. Super clean and Big, comfortable. Went with my partner and everyone was playful and respectful. Weekday at 6 pm was enough people, most of them above 45 yo but most good looking, also younger people. We had a threesome and was lot of fun.“

  4. Awesome

    “No wonder there are only great comments about it. By far, the best and cleanest sauna I've ever been. Well structured facilities.
    Friendly staff (especially the Brazilian guy at the reception).
    The public is also a good mix, from young to older and from local to internationals. Many good-looking ones.
    It doesn't matter what time one goes, this place will not be empty
    It sure worth the price.“

  5. Indeed an great place

    “Went there on a Sunday at about 6pm and left at midnight. Clean, nice atmosphere, hot men of all kind. The locals were welcoming and nice, even if they were not into having sex. There was a very pleasant patio open (summer).
    One thing - next time I'm bringing my own condoms, as the free condoms are very thick. Lub for free- ask for it in the bar.“

  6. Awesome sauna

    “I always pay a visit when in Berlin. Big and modern clean facilities and always busy. Always lots going on in the steam room. Last time I was there I had only been in for a few minutes and had my first encounter. A mind blowing experience being serviced by three guys at the same time. Looking forward to my next visit.“

  7. Best in Europe

    “Best time to go is Sunday from 2/3pm - leaving time will be when you run out of energy because the hot guys just keep on coming - make sure you hit the gym prior and get buffed up really good otherwise as some other reviews say the hot guys like to pose - that's not true -they are there to have fun but they will only go with someone hot, so expect major competition but that makes it all the more fun.“

  8. CHECK EMERGENCY EXITS

    “After 3 people died at Splash/ Steamworks... please be aware of emergency exits.
    Also locker keys can easily be lost as management have been unable to introduce a proper wrist band.“

  9. Simply exceptional. What an experience.

    “Thoughtful architectural design and exacting building standards combined with great staff = great experience. Quality is built into every square centimetre of this space right down to the heated, tiled seating plinths surrounding the spa pool and adjacent areas. Quiet chillout music is no competition for the sound of chatter. Yes, friends go here to socialise. You know? Talk to each other? Without cell phones? Remember that? Yes, the design lends itself to socialising and course alcoholic beverages and food are available just as a civilised society would allow. I could rave on. Yes, the design is pared back, but the flow is great. Add to that dozens of hot, playful men and that a five stars from me. One slightly jarring note. Condoms are freely available, but no lube. So take your own.“

  11. Racist Free!

    “Being an Asian, my worry is my race. But this place welcomes me not only warm but hot experiences that boost my ego to maximum limit, and its very clean too. Babylon in Asia, Der Boiler in Europe...

    To all Asians especially my Kababayan readers, this place is highly recommended!“

  12. Amazing and clean

    “June 16 visit - amazing sauna - very clean with good facilities! felt more like a health club in parts then leading down to a very clean sauna area. Rooms are big and clean with excellent saunas to use!

    Some hot guys go here but I found they tend to come with mates and click together, seemed to be more interested in each other rather than being there for fun. In saying that I did manage to play with some really stunning guys, but most just want to enjoy being looked at.“

  15. Superb

    “Easily the cleanest and smartest sauna I have visited. Friendly and full of fit guys, mostly 25 and older. If you only ever visit one gay sauna, make it this one. Non-threatening and has great facilities. I particularly enjoyed the steam room/maze and the very large jacuzzi. Hooked up with a Hungarian, Italian and African; all great guys. Tenderness as well as raunch.“

  16. Good place

    “The facilities are great. The 2 different saunas, the steam room and the jacuzzi are great. It's very cruisy, although I didn't get so much fun, like in another European saunas; there are so many guys when I visited and I found they were not with so much disposition to cruise. So many times, I think less is more.“

  18. Mixed crowd, friendly staff

    “The nice thing is that the crowd is very mixed: young, old, dat, thin. This reinforces the idea that everyone is welcome. Staff is very friendly and offer a good service. This sauna is clean.
    The bar part offers a big choice of meals, snacks and drinks“

  19. Nice, big traditional sauna.

    “Deluxe old-style bathhouses like this one are disappearing because of hook-up apps on our cell phones. Too bad, because these can still be fun. There were a few dozen guys, some quite cute, when I stopped by Friday around midnight (I would suggest going earlier) but this place is so big it felt a little empty. Like most saunas in Europe, you cannot rent a private room but you can borrow any that are available. Safe, clean and secure. Not sleazy at all.“

  20. My favourite sauna in Berlin

    “Very clean facilities including swimming pool, a very large steam room, lots of cabin (including a few with slings), a cinema room and a dark area. They also have large shower facilities and itimate cleaning shower. Decent on site restaurant. It has always been quite busy every time I went there. Varied ages, younger crowd tend to come in the late evening while older guys fancy the afternoons more.“

  21. Modern and nice place

    “Visited from Friday 8.00 to 10.00 pm. Nice,clean easy to find. A big venue for a sauna that I ever been. Visitors are majority above 27 and many seniors - no twinky, if you like this age group is a fantastic.“

  22. Best Place

    “It's a big sauna with a big Jacuzzi. A very nice labyrinth. And a great place to relax.
    I was in Berlin for a flight connection and didn't want to stay in a hotel. Stay there for the whole night, it is possible to have fun, sleep for a couple of hours and than take a shower and go to the airport.

    (They have like a sleeping room)“
