The Hamam of the chocolate factory - pleasure only for women
In the Hamam of the Frauenzentrum Schokofabrik e.V., the Turkish Bath for Women, Berliners of different cultural backgrounds as well as Berlin visitors from all over the world have been meeting since 1988 to get to know the pleasant sides of our intercultural metropolis in a relaxed atmosphere. Visitors to the Hamam have access to the other services offered by the Schokofabrik, such as counseling, sports, classes or events on feminist education, as well as information on other women's projects and a wide range of reading material, current press and books.
The hamam culture has its origins in the Orient. Lingering, washing and chatting in the oriental bathrooms is a pleasure far away from hectic and everyday life. The classic hamam visit with the traditionally oriented applications Kese and Sabunlama (full body peeling and soap massage) was further developed in the chocolate factory. In addition to a visit to the hamam with its beautiful tile mosaic on the dome, visitors are offered a Finnish sauna, an infrared heat cabin, relaxing massages, cosmetic treatments, culinary delights and a relaxing stay in comfortable relaxation rooms or in the green courtyard.
At the beginning of their first visit, our visitors receive a detailed introduction, our facilities and the sensible procedure of bathing in our Hamam are explained and questions are answered. You should at least bring or borrow or buy several towels, bathing shoes and care products like soaps and shampoo. Hair dryers are available. Bathing clothes are not necessary in the hamam and are not allowed in the sauna.
