Pools and Saunas

Each of them a little paradise

Saxon Switzerland’s swimming pools and sauna facilities are a wonderful completion of outdoor activities not just on rainy days.
In Saxon Switzerland activity holidays, nature experience and spa treatments harmonize perfectly. The best proof of this is the region’s multifaceted pool and sauna scene. Well-equipped water fun facilities, spas, outdoor pools and bathing lakes as well as saunas for every taste are situated next to famous hiking and cycling trails and often in the immediate vicinity of the National Park.

The log house sauna provides a very special steam experience with, for something completely different, garlic-scented water sprinkled on the hot sauna stones.
