The 'Gothenburg Public Sauna' is a unusual public spa that is located in the middle of an industrial harbor. When most people think of a day at the spa, they tend to think of a pristine building located in peaceful setting. This sauna offers a unique spa experience that is unlike any other.

The Gothenburg Public Sauna was designed by the Berlin-based collective 'Raumlabor.' The sauna is raised above the water and only accessible via a wooden bridge connected to the shore. The exterior is made from rusty corrugated steel that gives the building an industrial appearance. Despite the uninviting exterior, the inside of the building is warm and comfortable. The sauna boosts a beautiful timber-lined interior and windows that look out over the industrial harbor.
