You can benefit from rejuvenating therapies, relax in therapeutic waters, and explore the serene surroundings, all contributing to a revitalising experience.
Lucky for you, Healing Holidays offers a range of options in Germany, catering to various wellness preferences. Whether you are looking to get your health in serious check at a state-of-the-art medical, relax in a luxurious spa hotel, or experience authentic Ayurveda and Yoga, consider these four wellness retreats in Germany.
Home to not one spa, but six, including the largest Hammam west of Istanbul, there are various heated pools, saunas, and a spa menu featuring a selection of soothing and healing treatments ranging from Abhyanga to Shiatsu, Thai massages to Hammam scrubs. However, there’s more to Schloss Elmau than just its fantastic spa offering. There’s also an extensive range of culinary delights and activities to enjoy too, including hiking, mountain biking, Yoga classes, Pilates, Tai Chi, cross-country skiing, and tennis. Be sure to also check out a performance at Schloss Elmau’s very own concert hall, which plays host to more than 200 concerts each year.
Offered exclusively by Healing Holiday’s, Lanserhohf Sylt is a stylish medical clinic belonging to the Lanserhof Group that is located off Germany's North Sea coast on the popular holiday island of Sylt. Designed by architect Christoph Ingenhoven, this state-of-the-art medical spa integrates beautifully with its surroundings and prioritises eco-friendly materials and sustainability, making it perfect for the eco-conscious traveller.
Lanserhohf Sylt stands out for its LANS Med Concept, which merges the Mayr Cure, traditional naturopathy, and advanced medical methods. Focusing on digestive health, this concept addresses a wide range of health issues. Led by Dr. Jan Stritzke and his team of professionals, a detox plan to restore your health is made personally for you upon your arrival. Between treatments, you can unwind, explore the clinic's amenities, or relax and enjoy the healing atmosphere and refreshing sea air that the island of Sylt is known for.
You don't need to travel to India or Sri Lanka to experience excellent Ayurveda! Another superb option for a wellness retreat in Germany, and an exclusive only offered by Healing Holidays, is Ayurveda Parkschloschen. Surrounded by majestic trees, vineyards, and a tranquil stream, Ayurveda Parkschloschen is a family-run resort that stands as Germany's first and only "strictly Ayurveda" health destination.
From food to treatments, exercises, and even decor, everything aligns with the principles of this ancient healing practice. Their standout offering is the Panchakarma detox programme, aiming to boost both physical and mental health by eliminating toxins and metabolic waste. It's an intensive option that yields remarkable results. The spa also provides yoga, stress management, and shorter programs, all guided by the very best Ayurvedic experts.
Villa Stephanie Spa & Well-Being
Beside Brenners Park Hotel at the edge of the Black Forest, Villa Stphanie Spa Wellbeing is a refined mansion that's sought after not just for its stunning location but also for its comprehensive health diagnostics services. The clinic has a team of leading medical experts in various fields, including gynecology, dentistry, cardiology, holistic medicine, and aesthetics, all under the guidance of the esteemed Dr. Harry König.
There is also a brilliant Physiotherapy Wing headed by Martina Nesselhauf, who will sort all those niggling back issues which you can never seem to get fixed. There is a stellar team of masseuses, too, with Othman our personal favourite. The fitness team is also top-tier, and if you want a bit of pampering, then there are dreamy facials and treatments from Sisley, Skinceuticals, and the German brand, Anika Organic.
Last on our list, but certainly not least, another Healing Holidays exclusive medical spa wellness getaway, Lanserhof Tegernsee. Surrounded by the Bavarian Alps above Lake Tegern, Lanserhof Tegernsee stands as Europe's premier medical spa clinic, blending advanced medical knowledge with top-tier luxury.
It stands out for its distinctive LANS Med Concept, which combines the Mayr Cure, natural therapies, and cutting-edge medical practices.
