“Wellbeing Oasis” saunascape

Finnish sauna and bio-sauna with temperatures at 60 to 100°C await you in the inner area. The heart of this oasis is the central pool area with its plunge pools, marble seating and footbaths. The brisk temperatures of 43 to 46°C coupled with 100% relative humidity promote ideal relaxation. Particularly healthy for those with respiratory and rheumatic ailments.

After the steam baths, the even radiant heat of the caldarium does any body good.

Perhaps now even further relax with a warm footbath – targeting the capillaries of the sole. Tranquillity is the order of the day in our Panorama-Wintergarten. Outdoors, a large panoramic terrace, another Finnish sauna and a 2.5% saltwater pool kept at 34°C beckon. Saline is another special feature of the outdoor area as 12.5% saltwater trickles over blackthorn branches. Inhaling the brine has an expectorant, soothing and anti-inflammatory effect.

Pools and mountain lakes

Grubsee Family Swimming Pool

Just 400 m from the campground, Grubsee lake is a little gem of a swimmer’s paradise. The lake is well-protected between two hills, with its clear, eight-metre-deep water warming up quickly to 22-26° C. Fun and fitness are both equally ensured: A super water slide and two wading pools will keep the kids occupied for hours. Beautiful south-facing sunbathing lawns. Aqua training is offered once a week during the summer season.

Barmsee beach

Idyllic Barmsee lake is only about ½ km from the campground. One kilometre long, half a kilometre wide and 55 metres deep, the lake offers a spectacular view of the western Karwendel peaks from the natural beach on its northwest banks. Its water quality has been officially certified as very good.


Arguably the area’s most beautifully situated mountain lake for swimming. The water temperature is relatively nice, the view of the Karwendel from the north bank breathtaking. To take best advantage of this, a picturesque sunbathing lawn spreads across the south bank (€1). Park in Gerold or the car park on Bundesstrasse.
