Our story

Gothicsauna was opened at the end of December 1996, with the interior design of the architect Leonardo Modena – www.leonardomodena.com – that has left an innovative mark that is still distinctive after 25 years. Gothicsauna has been renovated regularly with the addition of quality materials, technology, and professional equipment, to maintain high standards of excellence. The venue is also distinguished by a constant search for innovation, with exclusive ideas, such as the world premiere installation of a foam room in 1997.

Our vision

Our sauna – which celebrates in 2022 its 25 years in activity – looks to the future with serenity. This is thanks to the optimal reputation acquired over the years, having accumulated, thus, a large number of loyal customers due to our attention to every detail, the sense of hospitality, the quality and pleasantness of the rooms, the friendliness of the staff, the events and the always new opportunities for encounters. An ulterior point of strength of Gothicsauna is its optimal accessibility: train connections to Zurich in less than two hours, also frequent trains to Italy, near the Lugano’s FFS station, and wide availability of parking spots. The sauna always has surprises reserved for its guest – announced through the main social media channels – and supports important projects destined for the LGBT community.
