In order to react to an increasing demand for textile sauna facilities, Germany’s Stadtwerke Osnabrück are currently constructing a new textile sauna village in the outdoor area of its belonging Nettebad bathing complex, which is scheduled to open later this year. “Little Finland” will be the name of the 635 square meter large sauna area, in which two igloo-shaped “Koivu” sauna cabins have already been integrated, which were replaced from the bath’s existing “Loma” sauna garden. In total, the new visitor offer will include three sauna cabins and a relaxation lodge.
“With this new offer we fulfill an increasing demand by our guests,” explains Wolfgang Hermle, head of the bathing complexes at Stadtwerke Osnabrück. In many other countries, including European ones, sweating in bathing clothes is the standard. “[…] With our textile sauna village we primarily aim at addressing young families. For first sauna-goers and those, who do not favor to be naked in the sauna, our new wellness offer will be very attractive,” he adds.
Thanks to the relocation of the two Koivu sauna cabins into the new “Little Finland” area, the existing “Loma” sauna village can now be upgraded by adding new sauna offerings. This year, constructions works will start for a new facility, to which bathing guests can already look forward to.
Another renovation at Nettebad was made for the “little ones”: In the facility’s outdoor area, the “Splashpad” water play structure from Roigk (cf. EAP news f. June 22nd, 2017) was complemented by sun shades with water effects. (eap)
