Steam bath “Bären­zwinger”

The Renais­sance fort­ress once included the Bear Kennel. These, so-called buil­dings were extended under Paul Buchner, who is respon­sible for today’s Alber­tinum or the Johan­neum (Museum of Trans­port), among other things. In the steam bath “Bären­zwinger” you can easily sweat in the 100 per­cent humi­dity at about 45 degrees Cel­sius. Sauna-goers sit around a steam fire­place on warmed stone slabs.
