COVID-19 | Questions and answers
If you want to talk to us personally ...
Currently, the German government has issued instructions not to offer any trips for tourist purposes until 31th of January 2021 we guess longer ... The regions of the partners in the neighbouring countries are considered to be risk areas. If you are planning a trip to one of the partner hotels of the Wellness Hotels & Resorts during this period, please contact the hotel directly for further action. For wellness trips at a later date, our partners offer fair cancellation conditions in case there are any changes due to the Corona location at that time. In any case, you can be sure that in our quality-tested hotels we implement further extensive measures against COVID-19 in addition to the standard hygiene regulations, so that you and the employees* of the hoteliers affiliated with us are protected.

What will my holiday experience be like?
In our hotels you will still experience wellness as a lifestyle: The four pillars of wellness "Relaxation", "Nutrition", "Exercise" and "Social Emotional Support" are written in capital letters. As usual, you can expect excellent service on site in a stylish ambience and special culinary delights. All partner hotels are surrounded by the most beautiful nature, which you can discover in a variety of ways. Hotel staff will be happy to give you tips & recommendations for cultural experiences, hiking or cycling routes and tell you which destinations are open on your tours.
Do I have to wear a protective mask?
Currently, guests and staff are legally obliged to wear a simple mouth and nose mask in public places. The wellness hotel of your choice will be happy to inform you about the latest valid regulations on site.
How can the minimum distance be maintained?
In waiting areas, such as at the hotel reception or restaurant entrance, markings have been placed on the floor to indicate minimum distances. In some areas, additional plexiglass panels were installed for protection. Tables, loungers and lounge furniture have been placed throughout the hotel in such a way that the required minimum distance can be easily maintained. In order to maintain the minimum distances, it is also necessary to limit the number of people in public areas. For this reason, our hotels have set a maximum number of people present at the same time in the restaurants, the spa area, the pool and possibly in other rooms. Information on this can be obtained from the staff on site.
What disinfection measures are implemented?
Additional disinfection dispensers have been installed for you at many central points. Many places in the hotels are disinfected several times a day - especially handrails, door handles, work surfaces, lifts, changing rooms, toilets etc. Please help: You can prevent infection by washing your hands frequently.
How are the rooms cleaned?
The rooms are cleaned during your stay according to the highest standards of hygiene. Our staff wear a mouth and nose protector and disposable gloves when entering your room. They disinfect surfaces at particular risk. After the guest has left, all surfaces are cleaned and disinfected. Note: There are currently different regulations for regular room cleaning. Please contact the hotel of your choice.
What do I have to think about before my arrival?
Some partner hotels will send you a health questionnaire and registration form before your arrival. In this case, please bring these forms filled out with you when you check in. If you feel ill on arrival, we will ask you to postpone your trip. Currently, some German federal states prohibit accommodation for guests from cities or districts with an incidence of more than 50 corona cases per 100,000 inhabitants. In these federal states, guests must present a negative corona test on arrival not more than 48 hours ago. If your selected hotel is located in a federal state with a current ban on accommodation, please discuss the further procedure in good time before arrival.
What should I do if I experience COVID-19 symptoms on site?
If you feel any signs of illness suspected to be caused by COVID-19, please contact the reception immediately. The hotelier is prepared for such a case and will take further steps with you and the relevant authorities.
What are the rules to ensure that not too many people are in the restaurant at the same time?
In order to comply with the legal requirements for maximum number of people in the restaurant, many of our partners offer different periods for breakfast or dinner. The reception staff will be happy to provide you with further details. Please reserve your desired period in the restaurant there.
What else is done to prevent infection in the restaurant?
The hotels have arranged the placement in the restaurant in such a way that minimum distances to people from other rooms can be maintained at all times. Many hotel partners serve most dishes at the table. Please observe the marked distances on the floor and the walking paths.
Is the spa area open?
The spa areas including pools are currently open in all our partner hotels. Saunas with a temperature higher than 70°C are also open, but due to the current situation no infusions are carried out here. Please contact the hotel of your choice to arrange which spa and wellness experiences are offered on site.
Is there a risk of infection in the pool?
The water of indoor and outdoor pools has always protected against the transmission of viruses and bacteria by adding chlorine. Nevertheless, please observe the minimum distances to the next person in the pool and the distance markings in front of the public showers.
Can I get infected in the sauna?
There is no risk of COVID-19 infection at temperatures higher than 70°C. Therefore, you can enjoy your stay in saunas with these temperatures and higher without any concerns. Nevertheless, please note the limited number of people in the saunas and keep the marked minimum distances.
How is the minimum distance maintained in the rest area?
The recliners in our hotels have been arranged so that minimum distances can be maintained. For the spa area, there is also often a maximum number of people, which is indicated by signs. The hotel staff will be happy to provide you with further details.
Can I currently book treatments?
Many treatments you can continue to enjoy with us. Please contact the hotel of your choice directly for the currently available treatments.
How is the risk of infection during a treatment minimised?
Our employees wear a mouth guard and/or face visor and will increasingly disinfect all areas in the cabin that are exposed to intensive contact. Please follow the special hygiene instructions on site.
Are there currently fitness classes available at the hotel?
Of course there are still our group activity programmes in the wellness hotels. If these cannot take place outdoors due to the season, we make sure that the minimum distance is observed in the gymnastics rooms, regular disinfection and good ventilation. Please understand that our trainers currently do not perform corrections with body contact. If you would like to participate in our fitness programme, we recommend that you bring your own gymnastics mat.
Can I also use fitness equipment?
The fixed fitness equipment is still available and is regularly disinfected. We also ask you to disinfect the equipment directly after use. Please note the maximum number of persons in the fitness room.
Which options do I have to cancel my trip?
