The ultimate joys of water, as a final farewell to the only public baths in Salzburg, now are to be closed down. The last customers let us participate in their intimate rituals of hygiene, relaxation and fitness. Time stands still at a place that combines public life and intimacy at such high grade. Pictures of long passages in the souterrain, cold light, some red spots in the form of furniture from the seventies. It is a journey back to the times when it was not common at all to have a bath of one's own. Time stands still at a place where people are still celebrating their intimate bathing rituals.
