It was opened in 1988 as the first hammam in Germany.
The hammam is a bath for cleansing and care of body and soul. Relaxation and communication in a pleasantly warm atmosphere are essential elements of hammam culture.
In the hammam of the chocolate factory, women of various cultural backgrounds work and meet. The visitors of our oriental bath will find relaxation as well as interesting new contacts and impressions. - Or they talk to their girlfriends in a relaxed atmosphere.
In our hammam, the Turkish bath for women, Berliners of various cultural backgrounds as well as visitors from all over the world, who want to get to know the pleasant side of the intercultural metropolis Berlin, meet in a relaxed atmosphere. Not infrequently, visitors first find their way to the hammam and thus get to know and appreciate the chocolate factory with its other feminist offerings, such as advice, education and sports.
As a supplement to the visit to the hamam, we offer our visitors a multitude of treatments as well as relaxation in our sauna, in the infrared cabin, in our courtyard or in our cozy rooms. On her first visit, each woman gets a detailed explanation in which she shows the premises, explains the usual course of the bath and answers any questions that arise.
Short history of our Hamam for women
The plan to build a hammam for women has existed since the founding of the chocolate factory. The idea was realized to bring together Kreuzberg women of different origins and to create a space of encounter through relaxation in oriental culture already in the 80s. In the fall of 2011, the Frauenzentrum Schokoladenfabrik eV celebrated its 30th anniversary with a celebration lasting several days.
There are regular guided tours in the hammam for those interested in the cultural context of the Hamam and the history of the chocolate factory.International Women's Day, March 8, is celebrated every year with music and dancing. And every 1st of May, the hammam renounces bathing in favor of a "day of the open door". Then, as an exception, men have the opportunity to visit the hammam and take part in the popular guided tours through the entire women's center.
The hammam provides information about other women's projects, events and other offers for its visitors, while up-to-date journals and a library invite you to read.
Vouchers, on request also for immediate printing, can be purchased online and at the reception.
