Before leaving, we were able to talk to the managing director of the facility, Oliver-san.
First, he commented on German bathing conditions:
“The German households have a shower but not sauna. Saunas are consistently a recreation combined with facilities that also offer dining etc. Also, because the German sauna doesn’t have a very long tradition, the entertainment value is given weight. That’s why Aufguss is a necessity in German sauna! The German way is that men and women share a mixed bath, and I believe that is possible because the culture is progressing.”
Next, he also kindly told about this facility:
“Since the opening, our aim has been to be an entertaining facility that people of all ages can enjoy.”
“The reason why we have so many various saunas is that a person can find and enjoy a sauna best suited for him or her, regardless of his age and physical condition, regardless of even possible illnesses or restrictions.”
”There are many facilities in Germany that do not allow persons under 16 years to enter sauna because e.g. to ensure proper manners but we have also saunas targeting all ages, like our Excalibur Sauna”.
Hearing this from Oliver-san, I felt the deepest respect to this set of mind of being wise to the needs of the customers while giving form to something that has not yet been discovered.
Oliver-san told also:
”Our Russian Sauna was formerly located in Russia; it was dismantled, transported here and put together again.”
“This facility has 4 Wellness stars but the saunas have been awarded with 5 stars by the German Sauna Association. From now on we are going to add several treatment rooms and we are aiming for to be recognized with full 5 Wellness stars.”
The amount of information was just overflowing!
Even during this short discussion, I could feel the ambition and a great sense for details in Oliver-san’s speech.
