When the weather is not really favorable...
These days the weather is ideal for wellness.
For us, every guest is important and everyone should have an equal chance to visit us. For this reason, no admission tickets are sold in advance.
On weekends and during the holiday season there may be longer waiting times, especially from 12:00 AM and until 6:00 PM, so we recommend that you visit us before lunchtime or towards the evening if possible.
If you have opted for a package, we guarantee admission before your first treatment.
We wish you a relaxing wellness day.
