Wellness holidays: the best possible relaxation from everyday stress

Wellness enjoys great popularity not only in Germany. One reason for this is that in today's fast-paced world, many people no longer find the time for a break in their daily lives. A wellness holiday is a good opportunity to find time for things that are good for yourself and otherwise fall by the wayside. This can be a walk through the woods, relaxing body, mind and soul in the hotel's wellness area without looking back or enjoying time with the family. Thus a wellness holiday does not follow fixed criteria, but is an individual experience. In the time out from everyday life, the focus is on the individual person with his or her individual needs. Wellness holidays therefore look different for everyone.


Why are wellness offers popular for relaxation?

The individual possibilities in a wellness holiday make it special for many people. Whereas otherwise you are anchored in fixed everyday structures and have to fulfil your duties every day, a holiday at a wellness hotel focuses on recovery from the fixed structures. Thanks to the wide range of offers in the wellness hotel, every holidaymaker will find something suitable for him or herself.

Holidaymakers can plan their own personal day here as they please. While some long for relaxing wellness treatments, others want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city while hiking through the forest. Still others would like to learn about new nutritional concepts or return home with a tailor-made fitness programme. Not only can wellness holidaymakers choose from a wide range of activities, but they can also arrive with the people of their choice.

With whom can I go on a wellness holiday?

Some people yearn for time alone during a wellness holiday. To be able to focus on themselves once again and uncompromisingly organise the day according to their own needs: This is particularly valuable time for those who are surrounded by many people in their daily lives. Here they can find complete peace and gather strength. Perhaps they will even take one or two mindfulness rituals with them from their wellness holiday, which they can perform in their everyday life as a breather in between. Of course, a holiday with your partner, family and friends is also fun.

Wellness holidays as a couple

Relaxing together, sleeping in and not worrying about anything: Far from your own four walls, the focus here is on togetherness. A wellness holiday is ideal for finally finding time for each other and leaving everyday life behind. In-depth conversations during an excursion into the meadows and fields of the surrounding area, romantic dinners in the fine restaurant of the wellness hotel or a treatment together ensure unforgettable moments as a couple.

Wellness holiday with children

Exciting and beautiful: This is how many parents describe life with their children. At the same time, everyday life with children is often exhausting. Looking after them, caring for them, having fun: The little ones challenge their parents. Especially on holiday, relaxing together is a goal that is not so easy to achieve. Some wellness hotels have specialised in wellness offers for the whole family. While the children then play with the qualified supervisors, splash around in the children's pool or romp around in playgrounds with their peers, parents enjoy relaxing time out in the spa. Thanks to the comprehensive childcare facilities, parents can then turn their attention to their own needs again during their wellness holiday. Whether sauna sessions, cosmetic treatments or a relaxed lunch for two: the range of offers at the wellness hotel fulfils the holiday wishes of young and old.

Mother-Daughter Wellness Holiday

The connection between mother and daughter is often a very special one. Wellness holidays are a great way to nurture the relationship. Under the theme "Wellness for Mothers & Daughters", many wellness hoteliers invite the female family to take a relaxing break. Relaxing together, reminiscing about old memories, seeking advice from mum or making plans together in the spa: mothers and daughters spend a pleasant time during their wellness holiday - without the stress of everyday life.

Wellness is not a protected term and therefore the scope of the word wellness holiday is correspondingly wide. The wellness hotel cooperation Wellness-Hotels & Resorts sets high standards for its partner hotels. They are all owner-managed and thus offer travellers a very individual wellness holiday experience.

  • A 4 to 5-star level

What treatments do wellness hotels offer during a wellness break?

Whether classic massage or caring cosmetic treatments: Most wellness hoteliers offer their guests a basic repertoire of wellness treatments. The guest can choose from a wide range of treatments.

What should I pack for the wellness trip?
