Our new brine room facility has been running since 2007. You are
cordially invited to unwind and do something for your health in the
graduation house, amber grotto and salt crystal grotto.
The graduation house
In this 75-m² room, you can make yourself comfortable on the
recliners, rocking lounge chairs, swings or in the seating grotto
and breathe in the salty air at temperatures of 34°C to 36°C.
Graduation houses, commonly also known as salt works, were
previously built to extract cooking salt through evaporation.
Salty water – brine – runs along finely ramified hawthorn branches
on which the water can evaporate to an optimum degree.
Inhaling humid, salty air pleasantly moistens the airways, cleanses
them of bacteria, releases secretions and allows mucous membranes
The salty air also has an anti-inflammatory, preventive and healing
effect on chronic bronchitis and sinusitis. In addition, the brine
room increases vitality in those who are fatigued, and provides
relief for heart, circulatory and vascular diseases. Any person who
is in good health but is stressed by everyday life will similarly
notice the calming influence on the vegetative nervous
The amber and salt crystal grottos
With room temperatures of 40°C to 45°C, the amber and salt crystal
grottos are both spas with overheated air. Each of the 9-m² rooms
with heated benches and appropriate background music are designed
as meditation rooms.
The amber grotto, with its yellow
and orange colour scheme, conveys warmth and cosiness. Amber
decorations strengthen the pleasant air’s influence. Because amber,
known as a stone of healing and protection, is supposed to banish
fears and generate joie de vivre.
On the other hand, the prevalent blue hues in the salt
crystal grotto exude freshness and clarity. The salt
crystals convey peace and harmony, and are also said to promote
strength and vitality.
