Welcome to the H2O Sauna World

The modern Scandinavian sauna landscape of H2O Herford offers stimulation for all the senses. With light, colours, scents and sounds we have created a place to relax and enjoy life at a slower pace, much different from the classic sauna facilities. Please have a look at our Sauna World.

Vaikutus 80°C

A showroom with varied, musically accompanied infusions. The Vaikutus with its built-in gneisses and barrel roof is not only visually appealing. High-quality lighting and sound technology also has a lot to offer and provides special effects with music, plays of light, ground fog, lasers and black light.

Due to exercise and preparation phases, it can happen that this is temporarily closed for a short time.

Relaxation Areas

Relax, let your mind float free, be at peace, simply feel good. That’s what awaits you at the H2O Saunawelt, with its unique ambience.

Sauna Garden

The Nordic sauna garden with its Mediterranean touches takes you into another world. Enjoy the sensation of relaxing by the lake, or just chilling out in one of the many seating possibilities. Seated round the stove in the cosy cabin you can let your gaze roam over the sauna garden with the river running through it and forget about the stresses of everyday life.

Heated Recliner

Lying on the tiles of the marvellously anatomically shaped heated recliner it’s easy to forget about place and time. You will feel the lightness of your body and the gentle warmth. You will hear birds chirping and the soft tinkle of spheres. The colours of the sky and the garden pour into the room through the big windows.

Finnish Relaxation Room

The big Finnish relaxation room welcomes you beneath palm trees, a Lapland chandelier made from real reindeer antlers and a wide sky to greet you through the big roof windows. Hand-cut, hand-joined Kelo wood beams support the attractive roof structure, which is randomly lit up by the changing coloured light. The gentle splashing and soft gleam of the water wall puts you soothingly in touch with the elements. Chunky round grey beams cut from Finnish Kelo tree trunks and massive, warm-grained planks with rustic knots characterise the cosy relaxation room.

Sauna Pool

Simply switch off and let your muscles relax in the large outdoor pool, which is maintained at a pleasant temperature, or in one of the whirlpools in the sauna garden and indoors.

Sports Bar

Our Sports Bar is part of the rock bar (Felsentheke) and is located in the upper part of the sauna garden. The construction made of solid, round logs invites you to linger. Watch the football matches of the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga, the national team or the international competitions live or Formula 1, tennis, golf or handball.

Feel-good lounge

Enjoy warmth and the feeling of security. Relax from the stress of everyday life in our quiet zones.
