Confusing hotel icon

Was taking pictures off my phone and came across this one, which I took in one of our hotels in Germany. It seems to be one of those language-independent icons intended to tell you, well, something, but I still have no idea what it means, and even a web search doesn't seem to help.

Any ideas?


  1. It's a sauna, of course! Well, that's what I think it means.

  2. I was thinking, where could people sit? An auditorium maybe, but the symbol on the left is neither a music note, nor an ear.
    To me it looked more like a temperature probe, but I could not make the link... Now that Brian said Sauna, it sounds obvious.

  3. Yes, a sauna does seem like the obvious thing. Now why didn't I think of that?
