Sauna Sauerland: The sauna area at the DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & Spa, Hallenberg

Time out in hot saunas is a treat for all the senses. While you sit back, relax and enjoy the heat, your body starts working at full speed. The blood vessels dilate, blood circulation is stimulated. Harmful substances are now removed more quickly. The penetrating heat has a relaxing effect on the muscles, and tension is sometimes released as if by magic. The interplay with the cold showers that accompany sauna sessions also strengthens the immune system. Finally, a visit to the sauna also makes you pleasantly tired and you feel wonderfully relaxed. A time-out in the sauna Sauerland is perfect to leave everyday life behind for a while.

Sauna Sauerland in 4 star superior wellness hotel, Hochsauerland, near Winterberg

The sauna area at the DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & Spa includes a total of five saunas, a snow grotto and a relaxation area. The Swiss stone pine sauna and the large Finnish sauna provide warming moments of well-being, while you look out through large windows directly into nature. Here it is easy to forget everyday life for a few moments while you feel the pleasant heat on your body and can relax and look out into the lively greenery. For all sauna-goers who prefer it a little cooler, the smaller Finnish sauna with gentler temperatures is ideal. There is also a steam bath waiting to be discovered by you. The difference to the Finnish sauna is the temperature and humidity. The steam bath has low temperatures of 40 - 50 °C, but the humidity is much higher. In the sauna, on the other hand, you experience a drier heat. The Tecaldarium, the Roman sweat bath, is also an experience for all the senses. Various senses are actively stimulated here. Here you can experience colored light, pleasant sounds and calming fragrances. Thanks to the snow grotto, you can also treat yourself to a cool refreshment in the middle of the sauna. Snow falls here all year round, providing a pleasant cooling experience of a different kind. From the relaxation area, you can look directly into the sky through the pool water. The large Gucklock provides a fascinating play of light in the relaxation area of the sauna, while you feel your body and come to rest holistically. From the sauna area you also have direct access to the outdoor area, where you can enjoy the moment in the fresh air.

In addition to the attractive sauna area, the wellness area at the DIEDRICH Wellnesshotel & Spa in Hallenberg near Winterberg has even more to offer. Various areas ensure that you can relax quickly. These include a large outdoor infinity pool, a light-flooded indoor pool, the stylish "Zeitlos" relaxation area, the fitness room, the "Haus der Mitte" and our trained spa team, who will pamper you with a soothing massage, for example. The architecture of the swimming pool is reminiscent of a Roman column bath. While you linger in the pleasantly temperate water in the swimming pool, you can also let your gaze wander through nature. Huge panoramic windows make this possible. An adventure pool for all the senses. The proximity to nature is an important element in the wellness area, which runs through it like a common thread. For this reason, wood is used as a material in many places. In the "Timeless" relaxation area, you will experience a very special ambience. Comfortable loungers invite you to snuggle up while you let your thoughts drift and listen to the soothing sounds of nature. If exercise is part of your relaxation, you can either work out on your own in the fitness room or take part in a course in our "Haus der Mitte". Various activities such as yoga, meditation or Pilates are offered here every day, which you can also find in the course schedule. All too often, relaxation also makes you hungry. In our bathrobe bistro you can fortify yourself at any time. Delicious snacks - from tarte flambée to fresh salads - are waiting for you.
