Wellness at the Sporthotel Dachstein


There's nothing like an infusion in the Finnish sauna when you can wipe away your last worries on wooden loungers afterwards and awaken your spirits with a tea or mountain water.

Not that that's all there is to it. But quite honestly: a relaxing time-out needs valuable breaks and not a stimulus-flooded leisure programme.

THE WELL-BEING OASIS to...relax, relax and have time for yourself....

Our wellness area is truly an oasis of well-being. A Finnish sauna, a steam bath and an infrared cabin await you here to relax far away from the hustle and bustle and stress of everyday life. The relaxation room with wooden loungers invites you to sleep, dream and relax.

The Finnish sauna - the classic among the sauna variants.

One of the best-known and oldest types of sauna is the Finnish sauna, which not only makes visitors sweat in the far north: the Finnish sauna has become the most popular type of sauna in many European countries.

The Finnish sauna is enjoyed in wood-panelled cabins with benches for sitting and lying at different room heights. The wood in the cabin ensures low humidity between 10 and 20 percent and gives off a natural radiant heat.

Characteristic for the Finnish sauna are the temperatures of 80 to 100° C and the low humidity.

When infusing, the Finns like to mix a few drops of tar or birch water into the infusion water.

After the sweat bath, the body is cooled down outdoors or under cold water. Afterwards, relax in the rest area.

Enjoy deep relaxation with infrared heat, and promote your health! A stay in the infrared cabin is pleasant and relaxing, in this respect there is no doubt. The heat has a positive influence on the human body and soul, because we simply feel better in cosy warmth than in the cold.

The radiation can promote blood circulation, help with colds, tension or rheumatism and also with skin problems.

The hot water vapour opens the pores of the skin and at the same time ensures better blood circulation, while also boosting the metabolism. In addition, the steam bath has a very liberating effect on the respiratory tract, as the mucous membranes are well moistened.

In the case of rheumatic complaints and colds, the visit has a particularly beneficial and relaxing effect. The visit also has an influence on the health of the skin and hair as well as the respiratory organs. The steam bath relaxes cramped muscles and calms the nerves.

You should not go into the steam bath hungry or with a full stomach. Cleanse your body and dry yourself thoroughly. If your feet are cold, take a warm footbath before the steam bath. A bath should last 10 to 15 minutes, maximum 20 minutes.
