Sauna and hammam

The tradition of the sauna dates back to the necessity of a thorough cleansing of the body. Steam baths are common in the culture of Islam where they are also called “Hammam” or Turkish baths.

Saunas and steam baths have a positive effect on the vegetative nervous system and general well-being. They strengthen the immune system, which is especially important during the winter months for the prevention of colds and similar illnesses.

We don’t provide towels! You can rent them or bring your own.
