Golden Sauna Rules

Dear guests,

our sauna area is a nude bathing area according to the German sauna regulations for hygiene.

In the steam baths as well as in all saunas, you should take off your swimwear and use the wellness towels provided for them to cover and to sit on.

We have listed a few useful tips for those who are not regular sauna-goers but still want to relax in our sauna area:

Do not go to the sauna hungry or on a full stomach.

First, cleansing takes place in the shower, because "clean" skin (e.g. pores that have been freed from cream residues) sweat better.

In the sauna you can put your towel under your whole body.

The sauna session should take about 15 minutes. Rely on your feelings.

You should sit for the last two minutes so that your circulation gets used to the upright posture.

After the sauna, you should treat your body to some oxygen and go out into the fresh air.

The cooling should start carefully and at the foot (a point which is furthest from the heart).

Then you should treat yourself to a short break, this promotes recovery.

There should be around 20 minutes between each sauna session.

Your body loses a lot of fluid during the sauna (approx. 0.5 liters for 10-15 minutes), so you should drink plenty of water, tea or juice spritzers to compensate.

Advantages of a regular sauna visit:

- Improved defense functions of the body and protection against infections

- Good skin cleansing

- Strengthening the cardiovascular system

- Relaxation and recovery, as well as a balancing effect on blood pressure

When do I avoid saunas?

- in acute infections, especially fever

- in the event of severe vascular changes, especially in the heart and brain

- with inflammation of internal organs or phlebitis

- in acute rheumatism, epilepsy and cancer
