Finnish sauna

A visit to a Finnish sauna is characterised by the fact that the recommended length of stay at a temperature of 80 to 100 degrees Celsius and dry air should not exceed 15 minutes.

A sauna session is therefore a short but intense experience that is very demanding on the circulatory system.

Cooling down and then resting after a sauna session contributes significantly to your sense of well-being.


Our bio sauna is virtually a “light edition” of the Finnish sauna.

Supported by pleasant light changes, you can spend as long as you like in our bio sauna at a pleasant temperature of 50 to 60 degrees Celsius and a humidity of between 40 and 50 %.

Tips for your sauna visit

We would like to give you the following tips before you go to the sauna:

  • Do not visit the sauna on an empty stomach or immediately after a meal.
  • Enter the sauna undressed
  • Always shower before entering the sauna. Not only for reasons of hygiene, but also to wash the greasy film on your skin that closes the pores.
  • Dry yourself well before entering the sauna, because dry skin sweats better.
  • Keep calm, because the sauna is for relaxation and your well-being.
  • Place a large sauna towel on the bench before you sit down.
  • Warm air rises, i.e. it is hotter on the upper benches than on the lower ones.
  • If you like to sauna lying down, sit up a few minutes before leaving the sauna to avoid dizziness.
  • The duration of a sauna session depends on how comfortable you feel. Leave the sauna before you feel unwell. We recommend a duration of 8 to 12 minutes for a sauna session.
  • After the sauna session, it is advisable to cool your body down with fresh air and cold water.
  • Afterwards, allow your body to relax by going to the rest area.
  • Drink only after the last sauna session, preferably mineral water containing magnesium and calcium or light juice spritzers. Refrain from alcohol.
