Rustic sauna enjoyment from its home country
Traditional wellness pleasure is to be found in the Finnish old wood sauna at Hotel Zirngast: ancient wood from barns and mountain huts from the region has been used to build this sauna. So we’ve been able to create a very special, alpine hut atmosphere. Fragrance and ambience transport the visitor to a mountain hut high up in the Alps; a very special feature that turns a sauna session into a truly memorable experience.
When the water is thrown on to the hot stones in the sauna stove, your body relaxes automatically and is freed of toxins. The result is improved circulation and at the same time, your immune system is strengthened. You can cool down after sauna sessions in our fun shower.
