To take a dip/swim in the big pool and relax in the natural hot spring is a wonderful experience. Just few simple rules to follow and the pools are all yours:
1. Pick up your swimming-suit and towel and go to the pool-house.
2. When inside the pool-house please take of your shoes before you enter the changing rooms.
3. And then: men on the left - because women are always right ;)
4. Go to the showers and remember to leave your towels and shampoo on the shelves next to the showers.
    That is how we can avoid the dressing-rooms becoming all wet.
5. BEFORE putting on your swimming suit it is VERY IMPORTANT to wash your body with soap and rinse with warm water before you go to the pools.
    We will all benefit from that!
6. Be very CAREFUL when entering the Hot Spring because it can be SLIPPERY.
7. REMEBER! Take care of one another, especially children and elderly, there is NO safeguard!
8. ENJOY the experience.
