South Seas’ Paradise in Bavaria




Bad Wörishofen, Germany


Five years ago the thermal spa Bad Wörishofen was opened. The bathing scenery designed true to the motto “Holidays in the South Sea with a bonus for your health” offers a combination of state-approved thermal spring water, exotic holiday feeling under natural palm trees as well as an extensive wellness and beauty program.

On the occasion of the 5th anniversary the spa was expanded by the sauna paradise comprising an area of 2000 sqm. Natural stone plays a big role in design – not only as covering for walls and floors, but also as rock. The entire stone laying was done by company Eberle Natursteine, Bad Grönenbach.

STEIN spoke with Ludwig Eberle about a non-routine order.

Step-by-step construction

STEIN: Mr. Eberle, the expanded sauna paradise is designed very elaborately with natural stone. Which natural stone was laid in which areas?

Ludwig Eberle: We installed about 200 sqm of chloride slate in large-size slabs of 100 x 50 x 2 cm as well as approx. 600 sqm of Padang yellow, mottled and brush-finished, format 60 x 40 x 1.2 cm.

STEIN: In which areas did the constructor decide against natural stone, and why?

Ludwig Eberle: In the pool surrounds where tiles were installed because of their insensitivity under exposure to wetness. In the palm garden a flooring in parquet design was laid. Padang yellow was used for the beach area, its colour and structure gives the guest the feeling of being at the beach.

STEIN: Can you describe in single steps the work process – starting with the preparation of substrate until the installation of the large-size natural stones?
