Sleep better with stone pine timber at the Hotel Enzian

You're sure to sleep better in our metal-free stone pine timber beds! Studies have shown what people have known intuitively for centuries: a bed made from stone pine timber ensures a fantastic night's rest.

The Human Research Institute (HRI) in Weiz has confirmed that particular components of the stone pine wood help people to experience a gentle heart rhythm during the night. This means the body will average 3,500 heartbeats per day, which saves your heart one hour(!) of hard work.

The Enzian Zirben spa

In the hotel's own spa area, stone pine timber also has an important part to play in relaxing our guests. The greatest effects will be experienced in our Zirben sauna. At a comfortable 60 degrees Celsius, you will breath in the marvellous aroma of this timber - and watch the comings and goings on the slopes outside at the same time. A unique sauna experience with a view of the slopes!

Pssst! The Zirben spa is a clothing-free area and quiet zone. It is available to guests over 16 years of age. The sauna area is open daily from 3:00pm to 8:00pm, or in the event of bad weather, from 1:00pm.

Stone pine: facts & features

The Swiss stone pine, also known as the stone pine, Zirbe or Arve, is a stone pine tree native to the higher Alpine regions. Stone pines can reach 20 metres in height and live for up to 1,000 years. Their yellowish, fine grained timber is extremely hard-wearing. It also has a particularly pleasant aroma that lasts for years. In Alpine regions, stone pine timber is often used for interior furnishings, bedroom furniture and saunas. Just like here at the Hotel Enzian!
