Saturday 22 Sept – AUFGUSS-WM finals & award ceremony with aufguss-family saunaparty

Sunday 23 Sept – AUFGUSS-WM showdown – presentation of the World-Champions


AUFGUSS-WM” is an interest group of many sauna companies, whose main task is to organize and above all to continue developing the International Aufguss Championships on a high level for the worldwide audience.

The sauna-guest and customer is mainly focused – he should get presented the Aufguss on the highest possible level. But also the Aufguss-Master, whose opportunity it is to develop his skills and present his Aufguss-Shows while getting in international exchange on events e.g. the AUFGUSS-WM, which promotes the international understanding between the Aufguss-Masters as well as the sauna-world in general.

Much emphasis is placed on the original intention of an Aufguss as a health ritual and highlight of every “sauna bathing”, which must not be lost in the Show-Aufguss, but is supported by the “entertainment factor”. Therefore it is an object of “AUFGUSS-WM” to define standards that can be considered as quality characteristics for a good Aufguss and Show-Aufguss worldwide.

AUFGUSS-WM always stands for “sauna-festival with friends” and was founded on the 13th January 2014 in South Tyrol with the nations: Italy, Netherlands, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany and Switzerland in a constituent meeting.

The origin of our idea are the championships held in Italy since 2007 (Italian, European and International championships), the “Cron4 Aufguss-World Cup 2011”, the “International Aufguss-Trophy 2012” in Cron4 Wellness paradise in Italy/Brunico, the “SATAMA AUFGUSS-WM 2013” in Wendisch Rietz/Germany, the “Thermen Bussloo AUFGUSS-WM 2014” in Netherlands and the “AUFGUSS-WM 2015” in Thermen- & Badewelt Sinsheim, Germany where at least almost 70 participants from 14 nations and more then 5000 guests took part. In 2018 the event comes back to “SATAMA SAUNA RESORT & SPA am Scharmützelsee”.

Based on an established concept of international jury and uniform evaluation criteria, we want to celebrate more sauna-events as in the last years did.

More and more businesses join us from different nations to develop a shared sauna and thus Aufguss-culture and to contribute it to the world.
