aquanale Cologne

28. - 31. October 2025 | International trade fair for sauna, pool and ambience

The "aquanale" is a renowned international trade fair specializing in saunas, pools, and ambiance. It takes place biennially, specifically in odd-numbered years, every October or November at the Cologne Fairgrounds. It's organized by Koelnmesse GmbH, one of the world's largest trade fair organizers, and is exclusively open to professional visitors from around the globe..

The fair brings together national and international industry leaders who showcase the latest trends, innovations, and products in wellness, swimming pools, and saunas. Formerly known as a separate event, the "Solaria" – the international trade fair for sunlight systems – has been integrated into the aquanale. This perfectly complements the entire spectrum of offerings in the spa and wellness industry.

The range of offerings at the aquanale is impressive and diverse. It's segmented into categories such as:

  • Private Swimming Pool Area: All about pools and installations for private use.
  • Swimming Pool Technology and Public Pools: Solutions and trends for public swimming pool facilities.
  • Sauna & Spa: From traditional to modern sauna and spa solutions.
  • Private Spa: For the luxurious private spa domain.
  • GreenLiving Segment: Focusing on eco-friendly and sustainable solutions in the wellness and pool sector.

Concurrently with the aquanale, the FSB – the international trade fair for recreational, sports, and pool facilities – takes place. The co-occurrence of these two fairs provides a comprehensive perspective, presenting all facets of the pool industry from public facilities to private wellness and sauna facilities.

The venue, Cologne Fairgrounds, ranks among the leading trade fair locations in Europe, offering top-notch amenities, infrastructure, and connectivity for both exhibitors and visitors.

In summary, the aquanale in Cologne is an indispensable event for industry experts. It sets standards in expertise and comprehensiveness, captivating attendees with its unique range of offerings.
