Our cozy wellness area

can also be your relaxation oasis!

On 150 m² you will find a number of facilities that will help you to find yourself again after a strenuous day at a seminar or a long hike and to recharge your batteries.

Happiness is the highest form of joy about self-caused, momentary fulfillment of life. The more often and better we succeed in mastering our life as intended, the more likely it is to experience intense feelings of happiness. Fulfillment is when we can give our undivided attention to the “happy situation” for as long as possible.

Sauna with a choice of: “normal sauna” (Finnish sauna) or “soft sauna” (Klafs sanarium with 60° and 60% humidity)


Even the earliest cultures knew the healing effects of sweating. Today, sauna bathing is more popular than ever. One reason for this is the restorative and relaxing effect of this form of bathing – after just a few minutes in the sauna, even the busiest day is forgotten. Switch off, relax and gather new strength. Sauna bathing brings body and mind back into natural balance. Sauna bathing strengthens the immune system and the circulation and cares for the skin. Take enough time to have a sauna. Cleanse your body and get some fresh air. If you observe the sauna rules, you will soon feel soothing relaxation…

Klafs sanarium

The Klafs sanarium (or soft sauna) is a wonderful alternative to the sauna – especially for those people who don’t tolerate dry heat that well.

With a temperature of only 60°C and an air humidity of up to 60%, you will achieve well-being in a pleasant way.

And don’t forget – the health aspect also plays an important role in the Klafs sanarium. Just two visits to the Klafs sanarium per week can help, for example, to get high blood pressure under control – without any medication. Furthermore, important inflammatory parameters of the immune system are positively influenced.

Have you ever wondered why the sun’s rays still have the power to provide warmth even after millions of kilometers through cold space? The secret is the infrared rays. Because they warm the body directly without increasing the air temperature.

Infrared rays have the ability to cause atoms and molecules to vibrate. This releases energy that we perceive as warmth.

In our cedar cabin, the deep heat bath becomes an experience for all the senses. The play of colors supports your bathroom in an ideal way, because every color is said to have special properties that can be beneficial for body, mind and soul.

After a sauna or sunbathing, there is nothing nicer than “taking a break” … The lying or leaning option should be temperature-controlled but not too warm. Our ergonomically shaped heated lounger offers you the pleasant way of relaxing leaning – and with optimal relief for the joints.

Shiatsu is an independent, self-contained form of manual bodywork that takes the 5 elements theory into account.

The training to become a certified Shiatsu therapist lasts 3 years and is part of the masseur trade in Austria.

Using special techniques , the therapist uses the fingers, palms of the hands or even knees and elbows to direct and balance the inherent dynamic body energies , also known as Chi or Ki, into the designated channels ( meridians ). On special request, aids such as cupping glasses for tension or moxa herb for cold symptoms can also be used.

These touches are effortless. The client can lie and enjoy in complete relaxation and comfortable clothing!

The origin is assumed to be in ancient northern India-Nepal , where it spread through China to modern-day Japan. Its current form – including psychological aspects – as we know it here in the West, was brought to America and later to Europe by Shizuto Masunaga .

Shiatsu is particularly helpful for people with tension, stomach and digestive problems, headaches, cramps and muscle pain, sleep problems, listlessness, burn out, depression and much more.
