Cron4 Aufguss Trophy

After a great event held in 2016, 2019 will finally see the long-awaited new edition.

 

For us at Cron4 Wellness, the classic aufguss ritual continues to be the basis for wellness and relaxation in the sauna.

 

In the run-up to this year's event, we would like to reiterate once again that there will be no jury or ranking, so that the contest will take place without any performance pressure.

 

Qualified aufguss masters and experts from all over the world will perform classic aufguss sessions, accompanied by relaxing music and delightful scents, so that guest can enjoy complete relaxation.

 

Participation:

Each participant will compete individually performing a classic aufguss. Although no ranking system will apply, a participant may be disqualified by the jury if the certification is found to be inadequate, or if the aufguss master’s performance and/or presentation is deemed as unprofessional.
