Salt water pool and sauna theme park
Bathing in well-being...
Health and wellbeing, relaxation, beauty even... many people swear by the positive effects of the Haller salt water – and we are sitting at its source! Mother Nature has literally placed these medicinal spring waters at our feet, our greatest treasure. The wellness oasis, with its 2500 m² of salt water pool and sauna theme park, is open to anyone who wants to do something for his health.
About ten years ago, the Ringhotel Hohenlohe was one of the first houses in the region to be awarded the quality seal “Wellness Stars Baden-Württemberg”. The successful certification in the four star category has since then been both an incentive and a commitment for us. It inspired us to build the salt caves, and encouraged us to extend the beauty, Spa and wellness department with its Physiowell practice.
Salt Water Pool

Dip into the medicinal waves of the salt water pool and experience directly the beneficial effect of this natural brine. In the pool, our Haller brine has a salt content of 3.5 to 4 %, with a treasure trove of minerals. It makes your skin velvety soft, moisturizes it, boosts your immune system, stimulates your metabolism, is good for your chest, your joints, bones and nerves.
Three indoor pools, a Kneippness pool and the outdoor waterworld (in the sunny garden with its barefoot path provide a wide range of possible options. One of the special attractions of the pool, besides the swaying dance on the waves of the air bubble bench in the Vital round pool (35 ° C) and coming into contact with the super massage jets in the sitting whirlpool (34 ° C), is bathing to underwater music in the “sound and movement” pool (32 ° C).
