5 Spring Getaways to Think of Now
Even though it may not look like it currently in parts of Europe: spring will definitely come! In order to get you out of your winter low, why not start dreaming about a vacation in the spring! In spring, nature awakens to life again and there are colorful flowers, green majestic trees and lots of sunshine!
I am very much looking forward to spring and to those things that are actually fun again in springtime: picturesque hikes through the forest, walking through small towns discovering all nooks and crannies or dare to take a first jump into an outer pool. And let’s be honest: when the sun shines, this immediately picks up the spirits!
For the first weekend getaway in the friendly season, I present to you 5 green spring getaways that are awaiting spring and you!
1. Gain energy in the Bavarian Forest
Especially concerning health, the cold, gray winter leaves its footprints. Maybe you still feel a bit weak and not energetic just yet or simply want to do something good for yourself and want to start spring fresh and healthy! The Refugium Lindenwirt in Drachselried in the Bavarian Forest takes care of everything!
Several wellness treatments, such as the new fascia treatment or the countless detox programs regain new energy, while the base-oriented organic kitchen with its delicious meals like saffron risotto transfers you into a culinary coma. Totally new is the heated outer pool with 20 meters length that offers much room to swim or invites to splash around. Definitely a refresh of body and soul!
2. Bella Italia before the masses
Italy is a favorite vacation destination, especially in the summer when everyone heads to the sea. Before the large masses come, you can actually discover the magical surroundings of Liguria all for yourself. In Borgomaro lays the beautiful Relais del Maro, an Albergo Diffuso, only a few kilometers away from the Ligurian Sea.
Owner Elena pays much attention to love for details, you will see that in the individually furnished rooms alone. From Borgomaro, you can experience spring up close in the Hanbury Gardens or take a hike along Monte Toraggio. You will fall in love with the small corners of this typical Italian village, as well as with the homemade cakes by Elena’s mother.
3. Spring sleep at a Swiss castle
You always wanted to feel truly like royalty? Then you should head to Schloss Wartegg for a good spring sleep. The historic castle right at Lake Constance offers great views onto the breathtaking surroundings from each room. Here, you will have a real good night’s sleep and wake up completely refreshed.
But after you have slept-in, you should definitely take a stroll through the English Garden. This wonderful green oasis was designed back in 1860 and has enthused empresses at the time already! After a dreamy spring walk, enjoy a well-being organic tea with a piece of “flade” (Swiss for sheet cake) on the terrace and simply enjoy yourself!
4. From active to wellness vacation in the Harz
If you cannot make up your mind yet, what you feel like doing at the beginning of spring, then the Harz region is the answer. In the South Harz, you can be active with a hike, gaze at old castle walls or discover the historic city Stolberg. The perfect starting point for various Harz experiences is the Naturresort Schindelbruch.
And if you are looking for some relaxation after an exciting day, you can plunge into a wellness world at the resort’s spa landscape. The pool in midst of birch forests, the large sauna village or the tranquility room with a moss bed – you will definitely find your relaxation place here.
5. Fit into spring in Belek
If you want to get fit in a completely different surrounding, in order to get back on track with your sports rhythm, then the Gloria Verde Resort in Belek is the right place for you. In the middle of pine trees, golf enthusiasts have lots of time on the sustainably designed grass for the 18 hole course and can enjoy the turkish sun at the same time.
The purified sea water at Asklepion Spa & Thalasso has a soothing and cleansing effect – exactly what you will need after a day on the golf course. The best part: as an early bird booker, you will receive a 10% discount on all nights, if you book by March 31st.
And to which spring getaway are you heading to this season?
