Sauna area at Hotel Späth & Appartments, Bad Windsheim
In our sauna area (75 square metres) you will find everything for your well-being, namely:
- classic Finnish sauna,
- bio-sauna with higher humidity and lower temperature,
- relaxation loungers,
- a chill-out lounge and
- Vital water to quench your thirst after the 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.
