Spa Delights – Relax sustainably

What is better than a nice relaxing wellness vacation? I am convinced: not very much! Especially when the temperatures get colder (the next autumn and winter will come around for sure!) or on rainy days, on which you do not like to go outside anyway, the warming protection of a sauna seems very attractive to me. And a relaxing spa treatment is always needed anyway.

What would you say if the next spa and wellness holiday does not only have a sustainable, lasting effect, but also the stay itself is sustainable? In Germany alone there are many green possibilities for a relaxing short trip. Today I selected three of them:


Come up to calm down 

… is the motto at HUBERTUS Alpin Lodge & Spa. The authentic hotel welcomes guests at the Alpine Spa with a special spa concept. Here in Balderschwang, surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery, “Alpyurveda” and “Alpine primal force” is used to soothe the body and relax the soul. Simply heavenly!

Numerous Spa treatments with resounding names are to be experienced, for example the Sweet Detox treatment. Sweet detoxification? Sounds interesting! Behind this title is a whole body massage with honey-ginger-oil that stimulate the metabolism and purifies the layers of connective tissue. Thereby you can look forward to a bees-wax-package with vitamin A effect, moisture regulating face fleece with honey extract, as well as a foot massage with honey massage candles.

While one can fully concentrate on oneself and enjoy the easing of tension, HUBERTUS takes care of environmental protection. The spa area is made of regional silver fir timber and only regional products get on the table. With a sustainable heating technology with pellets, the hotel has the energy values of a passive house.



Naturally relax 

The proximity to the culture city Dresden is barely noticeable at einfach schön – it is so idyllic. The familial wellness pension with individually designed rooms and awarded outdoor area has a unique charme. The use of organic products, regional resources and geothermal energy makes einfach schön a true green pearl. The natural, personal, regional concept of host family Schelzel is paying off – you feel comfortable and at home immediately!

With a modern designed wellness area, einfach schön is the perfect place for a sustainable city-spa-trip. Sauna friends will appreciate the sauna world, where next to a bio sauna (70°C), also a Finnish sauna that heats up to 95°C can be found. From here, there is direct access to the oxygen-enriched outdoor pool, which is operated the entire year. A Kneipp basin, different dousing showers as well as a drinking fountain with healthy Grander water round off the experience.

For those who would prefer some privacy when having a sauna, einfach schön offers the “lake-house”. From the pine wood sauna as well as the quiet room, you will have a wonderful panorama view over the garden, the pool and the surrounding nature, thanks to full glazing.


Bali meets Lake Constance

Organic products from the region, wines from the own vinyard, wellness from Bali. This exciting mix of experiences is offered at Burgunderhof in Hagnau at Lake Constance. The bio certified adult hotel is climate neutral, spoils guests with products from own cultivation and supports social projects of the region. Here, one can truly enjoy tranquility without a bad conscience!

You do not quite yet have an idea what the concept with balinese influences could look like? Here is an example: A whole body massage at Burgunderhof puts your body in the centre of relaxation. Traditional Asian massage elements, a reflex zone therapy and soothing caresses for your soul await you. The treatment with energy stones rose quartz and rock crystal has an effect on your energy centers and balance present blockages.

In the Buddha Spa Suite at Burgunderhof, the wellness feeling starts in your room. With a view on Lake Constance, you might never want to leave this place again…
