Unwind at these German spas
When you’re constantly on the go, it's easy to carve time out and focus on yourself. As much as we tell ourselves that we will "later" — it truly is important for your overall health and well-being to find the time to relax and destress. What better way to do so than by taking a spa day? Check out these amazing spa resorts in Germany that are perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
Embrace the sauna heat inside the Meditation House found in the Vitality Oasis area. You can choose from three health pools filled with the same minerals as those found in the Dead Sea. You can also take advantage of the relaxation courses offered to help restore your sense of mindfulness.
In the Tropical Spa Area of Therme Erding, lie underneath the palm trees or take a swim in the mineral water that promises to soothe your body. Treat yourself to facial masks, body peelings, bubbling water lounge chairs, steam baths, saunas and the flowing canal.
Therme Erding is also great for those bringing children along. While you’re enjoying your treatments, kids can have a blast in the wave pool area. Or you can join them on the excitement at Galaxy Erding. With 26 water slides to choose from, Galaxy Erding is Europe’s largest waterslide park. There are different levels of slides best suited for families and thrill seekers. Therme Erding encompasses everything you need for a fun and relaxing vacation.
The massages at Hotel Romantischer Winkel include foot, head and neck, back and full-body. Oils and minerals from plants are incorporated in different massages that are proven to heal, restore and strengthen your body. If you have specific problem areas, you can get instant relief with spinal adjustments and intensive back pain treatments.
Clear your mind with a dip in the indoor and outdoor pools, Jacuzzis and whirlpools. Don’t forget to experience the calming light and sound room! Recline in one of the hanging lounge chairs while listening to peaceful music and watching soft-colored lights fade in and out of the room. There are also plenty of saunas and hot baths, each with its own amenities. Some offer body scrubs with natural muds, salts, herbal mists and much more. You will want to try them all.
This spa resort is divided into four sections: Caracalla Spa, Friedrichsbad, Cara Vitalis and ArenaVita. Caracalla Spa is where you can get different massages, body peelings and beauty treatments. Enjoy a warm cup of tea before or after your treatments in the relaxing wellness lounge. Take part in 130-year-old Roman-Irish bath traditions in the historic bathing temple of the Friedrichsbad. This temple contains a 17-step regime of steam, whirlpool, kinotherapeutic and hot baths. Pay extra for the soap scrub and the lotion massage — they are worth it!
The CaraVitalis section offers even more massage varieties and beauty treatments. You can choose full-body packages or single treatments. The options seem endless. Finally, ArenaVita is the place to get your sweat on! While relaxing is very good for you, fitness also does wonders for your heart, body and mind. You can train on your own or join the fitness group classes that include yoga, pilates, Aqua Zumba, spin, dance and much more. ArenaVita offers nutrition advice upon appointment if you want to learn how to nourish your body with a balanced diet. If you want a one-stop shop, then Carasana Oasis is the place to go.
Choose from cream baths, massages and various body treatments at Palais Thermal. During a cream bath, you’ll be covered in a lotion that contains night candle oil, a healing plant loaded with vitamins and minerals that are wonderful for your body. Once you are covered in cream, you will be wrapped in fabric and submerged in a warm bath. This allows your skin to fully absorb all of the ingredients in the oil. The cream bath treatment only takes about 30 minutes, so you can move on to the next treatment of your choice. You can even take an online virtual tour of Palais Thermal to get a sneak peek of what you’re in for!
Tropical Islands is best for families needing something for everyone to enjoy. Your family can pick among the tropical rainforest, minigolf, island ballooning, the tropical village and much more.
For daredevils out there, Tropical Islands is home to Germany’s tallest water slide. If you want a more romantic atmosphere, take a swim in the Magical Lagoon. If you would rather take a trip to the beach, head over to the Tropical Sea. Swim around in the 200-meter-long sea, sink your toes in the sand and lounge beneath palm trees.
The Tropino Club for Kids is perfect for smaller children. Your kids can enjoy air hockey, powerboat paddling, bumper boats, driving mini cars, playing with large LEGO blocks and more.
Whether you're heading out on your spa day solo, with your SO, or the whole family — you have plenty of options to choose from in Germany!
