The Aufguss Rituals
Famous for its beauty, intensity, and benefits, the Aufguss ritual will transport you elsewhere. Based on an ancient German practice, this sauna experience heightens the effects of traditional vaporization techniques by using water enriched with natural essential oils. When infused water and snow are poured onto the heated stones of a sauna, a burst of vapour with health-enhancing properties is released. The Rituals Artisan—using entrancing towel-waving choreographed movements—create a soft breeze. Every Aufguss is unique. Scents, sounds, atmosphere, length, spirit, and choreography can all vary greatly—an open-ended story.
The Aufguss ritual is announced with the ringing of a gong. When you hear it, head to the event sauna, the grandest of its kind. For the next 15 minutes or so, feel the heat rise and the air grow heavy with enriched vapour. What better to follow hot than cold? Your next destination after the ritual: a cold plunge. Feel the release of adrenaline as you experience thermal shock. Complete the thermal cycle by allowing yourself to rest in one of our many respite areas.
“An entrancing, unique and harmonious dance of vapour.”
