Sauna & Pool

4-star hotel with pool & sauna near Merano – South Tyrol, Val Venosta

Relax is a doing word

… well, you don’t actually have to do that much in our hotel with pool in the Val Venosta valley. Relaxing in the Finnish sauna and enjoying the pleasant warmth is enough. Of course, you can also decide to plunge into the indoor pool, after all, relaxation has many facets and you can enjoy several of them at das stachelburg.

Soothing warmth

Classic Finnish, relaxingly mild or perhaps with a little steam, like the Romans? If you don’t yet have a favourite sauna yet, you can try out our various saunas during your holiday in South Tyrol at das stachelburg. You are sure to find your personal favourite.

Refreshing waters

What a feeling it is to dive into our indoor pool and give your tired legs a break after a breathtaking day in the mountains around Merano and the region* … but of course you can also swim a few lengths or simply let yourself drift in the water and enjoy the revitalising tingle on your skin.

* Gentle swimming is also said to work wonders the day after hiking if you notice a little sore muscles.

Infinite tranquillity

Another tip from us: between the pool and sauna, we recommend a break in our relaxation room with garden view. Rumour has it that it’s a wonderful place to relax …
