In recent years, we have already invested heavily in sustainable solutions. Our saunas are off gas and we have conducted research with TU Delft on maintaining the temperature in the outdoor pool. As a result of this research, glass walls have been installed along the edge of the outdoor pool. You can read more about these measures on this page.
By slightly reducing our opening hours, we save a lot of energy every day. View the changed opening hours as of 1 November 2022 here. We also check daily how many guests we expect and, based on this, start up the saunas in phases. You can read more about these measures on this page.
From 1 November, there will be changed opening hours and not all saunas may be warm if you visit our resort in the morning. Read more about our sustainable adjustments here.
The thermal water is pumped from our spring at a temperature of 24 degrees, and is heated to a pleasant temperature as always. This temperature remains the same as you have come to expect from us. All current temperatures of the various baths can be viewed on the screens in the wellness area.
Together with TU Delft, research was conducted into maintaining the temperature in the outdoor pool. Following this research, glass walls were placed along the edge of the outdoor pool. As a result, the water cools down less and less energy is needed to keep it at the right temperature.

A sauna visit is good for the body but the change from warmth to cold takes some getting used to. For the best results, stick to a certain routine. A typical sauna routine is described below:
You start with a warm shower. After drying off, take a warm foot bath and enter the sauna. After sweating in the sauna, you walk around in the fresh air. After this, you take a cold shower and a warm foot bath. Finally, it is time to relax in one of our rest rooms. Let your body rest for 30 minutes before you again visit another sauna.
No, you do not receive a discount on the day entrance. However, you will receive a free cup of coffee and piece of local pie in one of our restaurants is you show your ID when checking in. This does not apply to a 4-hour entrance.
Sauna has a positive effect on your vital and mental health. The advantage of sweating in the sauna is that numerous waste products are discharged. When you take a dip in the cold water or cool off in the fresh air afterwards, this temperature change has a positive effect on your organs. In addition, the sauna is of course the ultimate beauty treatment. Sweating and then cooling down ensures cell renewal and the best cleansing of the skin.
Other benefits of a sauna visit are:
- Increasing the metabolism
- Increases resistance
- Relieving stress
- Relaxation of tired muscles

A sauna visit has a positive effect on the skin. Dry and wet saunas both produce a perspiration effect. In addition, blood vessels are dilated and there is an increase in skin temperature and heart rate. All these factors increase blood circulation and ultimately result in an increase in the oxygen content of your blood. This stimulates the natural healing of the skin.
Bring a copy of your valid ID card and a copy of your bank card with you during your visit. The amount will be automatically collected monthly (if you have a foreign bank account, it is not possible to collect the amount, in that case you will have to pay the full amount in one go). Your subscription starts immediately. For more information, please contact telephone number +31 (0)43-6092000 or email@example.com.
Spending a certain amount of time in a sauna causes your body temperature to rise by 1°C to 2°C. Cooling down brings your body back to its normal temperature. If you don't do this, you may continue to sweat for a long time and the capillaries on your head will remain open. This can result in massive headaches. So cooling down is very important! Here are a few ways to cool down:
- Take a short walk in the open air
- Take a cold shower
- Use the plunge pool
- Take a cold shower with the help of the bucket

There are basically two types of sauna. Namely, a dry sauna and a wet sauna. In a dry sauna you will notice that the heat has a greater effect on the body. This is because the air humidity is lower than in a wet sauna.
- Finnish sauna: this is a traditional sauna where the temperatures fluctuate between 60 °C and 120 °C. Finnish saunas come in both dry and wet forms. The wood absorbs the heat and gives it a natural appearance.
- Casting sauna: In a casting sauna, oils are added to water. This water is then poured onto a stove, which creates steam. A flapping towel ensures that the steam spreads quickly through the room. The steam sauna has a high degree of humidity.
- Infrared sauna: This is a sauna with dry heat from infrared rays. This allows many sauna visitors to tolerate the heat more easily.
- Turkish sauna: a Turkish sauna, also called a steam bath, has a low temperature (43 °C - 48 °C) but a high degree of humidity. This has a positive effect on your airways.
- Herbal sauna: a herbal sauna is a sauna where herbs such as mint or rosemary are burned. This has a stimulating, cleansing or relaxing effect.
You may feel tired after a sauna visit. Not surprising, since a sauna visit can be compared to training your body. After all, the body is put to considerable work. The body temperature rises by 1°C to 2°C, creating an artificial fever that activates the body's defense mechanism. As the body wants to get rid of the extreme heat, it will increase the heart rate so that the blood circulates faster.
If you then step into a cold bath, your skin pores will close again and blood vessels will constrict. This cold will make your body work hard again.
Within Thermae 2000 there are four different restaurants. Each outlet has a different menu and drinks menu for the widest possible range of tasty snacks, drinks etc. It is not allowed to bring your own food and drinks.

Have you just goten a piercing? Then we do not recommend booking a sauna session. During the healing process, it is important to avoid chlorinated water or steam baths. Expect to wait 3 to 6 weeks during which it is not advisable to visit a sauna. The exact healing time varies from person to person and also depends on general health and physical condition.
Can't wait to show off your new tattoo? Then wait just a little longer. Tattoo artists do not recommend a visit to the sauna after getting a tattoo. This has a negative effect on the healing process of the tattoo. It is safe to visit the sauna again from 4 weeks after the placement. For some this is shorter and for some longer. This depends entirely on your physical health and condition.
