Sauna with view of Zugspitze mountain: Romantik Hotel Spielmann converts historical horse stable to wellness paradise

(23 November 2018) Sweating with a unique view: In the Romantik Hotel Spielmann in Ehrwald in Tyrol guests sauna thanks to huge panorama windows now with a direct view of the mountain Zugspitze. A new infinity rock pool guarantees the same panorama. Directly at the foot of the mountain the Spielmanns converted a historical “horse stable” to a unique wellness area.

So far, the barn next to the hotel has been used as a stable and later as a storage and craft working space. Christina and Martin Spielmann who run the hotel in fourth generation since December 2017 dared the extensive reconstruction of the historical building that in the past has stood in East Tyrol many kilometers away. Grandfather Hansjörg Spielmann discovered on a trip decades ago that a wooden miner’s house was supposed to be taken down and saved the building material. The wood of the condemned building was taken with two semitrailers through the Carnic Alps to the foot of the Zugspitze to build the barn that was transformed this year to one of the most exceptional wellness areas in the Alps region.

In the process the barn was structurally linked to the historic main house of the Romantik Hotel. In the elaborately designed connecting structure sophisticated guests find an infrared Swiss stone-pine tranquility area, a combined seminar and fitness room, a chatting room, a massage room as well as a “private Romantik SPA”. The connected historic barn as an adults-only area offers a Finnish sauna, a Tyrolean organic herbsꞌ sauna, a Boarnebel steam bath and an old-style, cozy fireside tranquility area. The saunas have a direct view through big panorama panes overlooking the Zugspitze.

The Spielmann family always stayed true to its Tyrolean roots during the mega-project. Only for the region characteristic building materials like stones, spruce and arolla pine have been used. “Since we are a traditional and family-operated Tyrolean hotel which is sighting out the future guests should be able to rediscover the country’s features on vacation. Based on the motto: Tyrol booked, Tyrol found,” says the Spielmann family who also give priority to ecological aspects for this reason. During the construction of the extraordinary wellness area preferably no additional green space should be obstructed but the already built-up area used better. The fantastic view to the alpine world including the Zugspitze and the surrounding nature was meant to be improved and facilitated for the guests from all angles.

Alongside with the new wellness area in the historic barn family Spielmann has not left a stone unturned in the previously existing spa of the hotel. The old wellness area of the hotel was completely taken down this year as well and has a new design: The highlight is the infinity rock pool with indoor and outdoor swimming area that also guarantees a clear view of the Zugspitze and the surrounding mountains while swimming and bathing. Snug berths as well as a panorama tranquility room, again with a unique view, were added.
