BLACK FOREST WELLNESS

Warm well-being: the Finnish Sauna

For your Black Forest wellness a Finnish sauna is a must. At 95 degrees Celsius and with very dry air, the body turns on the cooling system and starts sweating a lot. This is good for the body for several reasons:

  • Cell metabolism is stimulated, metabolic products are removed faster and the body is purified.
  • The intense heat is a natural signal for the organism to slow down and relax.
  • The skin is rejuvenated by stimulating cell regeneration and removing dead skin cells. The skin also becomes more receptive to care products.
  • This also applies to the hair! This is why a hair treatment after a sauna is particularly effective.
  • Taking a sauna regularly also strengthens the immune system and keeps the blood vessels supple.

Black Forest Wellness for your muscles: the steam bath

Due to a humidity of 100 percent and 55 degrees Celsius in a steam bath the water comes less from the body than from the surrounding air. Already in ancient times, many cultures, including Romans and Ottomans, appreciated these artificial tropical conditions.

A steam bath is the ideal wellness program for an active Black Forest vacation. As many studies have shown, the humid heat can even prevent sore muscles. It penetrates deep into the muscles and thus ensures rapid regeneration. Whether after a long hike, mountain bike tour or the first kilometers on the slopes: thanks to the steam bath you will deal with fewer aches and pains the next day. And a short break in the steam bath also has other positive effects:
  • The immune system is stimulated.
  • By moistening the airways, you can prevent colds and other respiratory tract infections.
  • The skin is cleansed and the skin texture improves.
  • Subsequent alternating hot and cold showers strongly stimulate the blood circulation and thus promote a relaxing effect.

Sauna and steam bath – relaxation and joy for all guests

In our wellness area all guests should feel comfortable. This is especially applicable for the sauna and steam bath. To make it a pleasure for everyone to stay and relax there, we would like to ask all guests to follow a few rules. Please read our “Sauna Guide” and behave accordingly. Thank you very much.

Schwarzenbach Sauna Guide

These tips will help you to have the perfect Black Forest wellness experience.

Before the sauna

  • If you are still very cold, it is best to first warm up in the pool. This way you are better prepared for the heat of the sauna.
  • It is absolutely necessary to take a shower beforehand – on the one hand for hygienic reasons, on the other hand to remove the greasy film of the skin and thus make sweating easier.
  • Dry off well before the sauna – this also makes the skin sweat better.

During the sauna

  • Enter the sauna undressed, enter the steam bath wrapped in a towel.
  • Psst! sauna and steam bath are for relaxation. Please be quiet.
  • Please do not sit on the wood with bare skin in the sauna. Put a towel underneath. There are enough towels in your vacation apartment.
  • If you don’t feel well and you feel dizzy, for example, please leave.
    Sauna or steam bath sessions last between eight and at the most fifteen minutes.

After sweating 

  • After the sauna, it is best to go out into the fresh air on the balcony. The pure Black Forest air cools your body from the inside and outside and provides you with a lot of fresh oxygen.
  • Enjoy a refreshing cold shower afterwards.
  • After the sauna your body wants to rest. Allow yourself a break of about ten minutes in our relaxation room.
  • Only drink after the last session.

Or better no sauna?

  • Do not take a sauna on an empty stomach or right after a meal.
  • Please do not take a sauna if you do not feel well.
    Are you generally weakened or have a chronic illness? If in doubt, please check with your family doctor in advance whether you can take a sauna without any concerns.

Black Forest wellness for healthy breathing: the relaxation room

Let your organism relax after the positive stress of the sauna or steam bath. Treat your body to that extra bit of absolute relaxation on the comfortable reclining loungers in our relaxation room. Afterwards you will feel like a new person. You will certainly not want to leave again.
