Rest and Relax

A vacation is a perfect opportunity to finally dedicate some time to your own well-being.
While extensive walks, sporty ski days and beautiful excursions will quickly help you forget the stress of everyday life and ensure a sense of calm, our hotel is also geared towards your physical relaxation. In our Finnish sauna and steam bath, you can relax your muscles and work up a healthy sweat. In the "Luis Trenker" infrared cabin, a pleasant feeling of warmth will flow through you. An in-house whirlpool is also available.

If you wish to simply relax and read a book, leaf through a magazine or rest your eyes, you can make yourself comfortable on one of the loungers in the relaxation room.
