Original Fiè hay bath

Original Fiè hay bath®

Our hay bath area is open from Monday to Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Our ancestors knew about the power of mountain hay from the Dolomites. Rich in herbs and flowers, it exudes a unique aroma that is only known from a freshly mown meadow in full bloom. The original Fiè hay bath combines tradition and progress. Based on prior knowledge about South Tyrolean hay and water baths, it is our task to bring the natural raw material mountain hay into new contemporary treatments.

EFFECT. Hay baths have been successfully applied for more than one hundred years. These baths have a detoxifying and purifying effect; they are revitalising and balancing, and improve the overall wellbeing. Sweating in the hay strengthens the immune system and stimulates the metabolism. Furthermore, the hay flowers also provide excellent skin care.

ORIGINS. We get the hay from unfertilised meadows above 2,000m of altitude at Alpe di Siusi. The meadows have to feature more than 40 different types of grass and flowers over an area of 50 m². Only one cut during the blossoming period (from the middle of July to the start of August), and the careful drying process and storage guarantee for the high quality of our hay and the hay baths. The hay comes from the Murmeltier Hut.
Great things are done when men and mountains meet. (William Blake)
The original hay bath was first documented in 1871, although it was probably already known for many centuries. On the Sciliar in the Dolomites at an altitude of 2,450m above sea level, the farmers slept in piles of hay at night and woke up the next morning rested and full of energy, despite the strenuous work. Soon other countrymen imitated them. First for refreshment, but soon also to alleviate their aches.

The people of Fiè set a milestone for the subsequent popularity of hay bathing, natural wellness in Fiè allo Sciliar. They took advantage of the farmers’ experience and offered hay bathing in their village barns from 1890 onwards. Soon, they attracted spa guests from the region: Fruit and wine growers with aches and pains benefited from the natural wellness in Fiè allo Sciliar. The famous community doctor Dr Josef Clara (1872-1923) from Prato Isarco in South Tyrol created the first modern form of the Fiè hay bath, which is still quite popular today.
