Serlachius Art Sauna

In the lakeside setting of Serlachius Manor now stands the Art Sauna, which has something to offer not only sauna enthusiasts but also lovers of art, design and architecture. Groups can rent the Art Sauna for many kinds of occasions.

Art Sauna for evening relaxation, meetings and celebrations

You can include in your group’s Art Sauna visit a short, guided tour, presenting the sauna’s architecture, art and design. In a group sauna experience, you can use the Art Sauna’s towels and bench protectors, designed by the artist Satu Rautiainen. Bathrobes are also available for an additional fee. 

The sauna heat is enjoyed in an atmospheric circular steam room. Showers can be taken in the shower room connected to the changing rooms or – summer or winter – in the outside shower, featuring a mosaic work by Tuula Lehtinen. A large terrace area offers a bubble tub, but you can also take a dip in the adjacent Lake Melasjärvi. During the sauna, you can enjoy refreshments and sauna snacks at a magnificent stone table on the terrace.

The sauna experience is not complete without a grill. On site, freshly caught fish are prepared directly in a smoke oven or beef steaks on a barbecue. Of course, there are also vegetarian and vegan options to choose from.

The Awarded Art Sauna 

Serlachius Art Sauna was chosen as the Travel Industry Innovation of the Year 2022 at the Finnish Travel Gala. The jury described the Art Sauna as a breath-taking travel experience combining the Finnish sauna culture with the elements of art, nature and architecture. The Art Sauna brings joy to all senses.  

At the same time, the Art Sauna creates a new sauna culture, in which sauna is a place for experiences and social gathering instead of just the traditional way of slowing down and bathing. The Art Sauna was also described as a fresh insight into the cultural tourism industry. 

Serlachius Art Sauna won the Concrete Structure of the Year 2022 Prize and was also a Finalist in the Architectural Finlandia Prize 2022.
