Steam bath

The steam bath is literally a cabin filled with steam. The warm steam opens up your pores and thus cleanses the skin. In addition, the eucalyptus fragrance in this cabin is beneficial to your airways and will help to fight minor ailments such as a cold. It’s the perfect spot to get completely warmed up for a while.


Infrared sauna

Adjacent to the swimming pool, you will find the infrared sauna. Infrared rays are very good to relax your muscles after sports activities. Moreover, they reduce tensions and joint aches, they are beneficial to the skin and they detoxify the body. Ideal for your body’s recovery!

Finnish sauna

This traditional Finnish sauna in the wellness area of Thermae Sports is made entirely of kelo wood. This is a type of wood that absorbs heat very well, then releases it slowly.

This sauna offers numerous benefits:

  • Boosts the immune system
  • Increases your resistance to diseases and ailments
  • Eliminates toxins from the body
  • Burns extra calories

We recommend that you stay in this sauna no longer than 15 minutes. Shorter is of course allowed! You get the best results when you listen to your body and get out in time.

Don't forget to cool down afterwards to bring your body back to normal temperature.



Swimming pool

The pool is located right in the heart of our wellness. You can swim a few lengths or just take a dip after an intense workout. Swimming is very good for your heart and muscles, it lowers your blood pressure and cholesterol levels and also helps you sleep better.
