A deep breath and a reverberating ooommmm can set a lot of things right, but a change of scene and a well-thought-out wellness program can do miracles.

The Seezeit Spa, encircled by pines and oaks with a view of the water, offers a refuge for the senses across 2,700 square meters. The Celtic outdoor sauna complex is laid out according to earth’s energies where stony paths follow energy lines and lead to the sauna houses. Adding to the unique experience are different sauna infusions inspired by the Celtic annual cycle with herbs such as lavender and birch or a sound bowl-infusion as well as yoga of the Celts, Wyda.
