Sweating is healthy - especially in the sauna
What better way to treat your body. A sauna once a week is optimal for the body, because the positive effects are so long-lasting.
A few of our regular guests have already noticed our new outdoor sauna located on the west side behind the Rheinsberg. What started as two paved rectangles has now developed into two trendy wooden cubes. One contains the new sauna house and the second the relaxation room. Built in a sustainable, CO2-preserving timber construction, just like our hotel, you can now sweat and chill with a stunning view of the forest.
As a special treat, our premium landscaper and greenkeeper Urs has created a trail for the senses. The relaxation room boasts the brand new FATBOY rocking chairs that ensure optimal relaxation.
Their use is free for guests from the Comfort category; all others can include their use for EUR 12 per room/day as an introductory rate until February, incl. fluffy bathrobe, towel and slippers. We are currently still in the test phase so we look forward to your feedback to make sure that we can perfect it as quickly as possible! During the week, the sauna is open from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, on weekends from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm. If you would like to use the facilities, please check in at reception.
The perfect day in the sauna
An ideal sauna session involves several steps. This should start with a thorough body cleansing so as not to unnecessarily impair the subsequent perspiration. Hot showers are the order of the day; this encourages perspiration.
Then it’s off to the sauna to work up a sweat, for a maximum of 15 minutes. The stay should be short and intense. After the sauna session, head out to the fresh air. The body needs the oxygen and dissipates the heat through the skin. The cool-down phase should be at least as long as the warm-up phase. Three sauna sessions achieve all the desired health effects - anything more tends to have more of an unnecessary weakening and fatiguing effect.
