Enjoy the steams of our traditional lakeside sauna

If you’re looking to experience something very Finnish, we warmly recommend our very own lakeside sauna which was built already in the 1940s.

The gentle steams of the old wooden stove in idyllic surroundings take you to the very heart of Finnish traditions and back to the older times.

The lakeside sauna is always warmed up at the request of our clients at a price of 20 € per hour. You can make your booking through our reception.
