The spa hall in the spa park regularly attracts crowds with cultural events. It also entices visitors in with its sunny courtyard, a reading room with a library, a small souvenir shop and ever changing exhibitions.
Hellweg saltwater thermal baths
The saltwater thermal baths with more than 700m² of water, sauna facilities, spa area, sports area, treatment centre and vitamin bar will ensure you have an amazing spa experience. Whether you take a dip in the 34°C warm saltwater or visit the sauna, the baths are sure to offer you the ultimate relaxation experience.
The spa promenade which goes right past the hotel is the nicest way to reach the town centre from the hotel. You’ll find cosy little pubs and shops there and you can take a walk along the Osterbach, which meanders through the centre of the town. Everyday essentials and restaurants are also within walking distance.
