Horse riding and wellness

Horse riding or wellness? There is no need to make a decision at all, because horseback riding during your spa break offers the perfect combination of sport, nature experiences and relaxation. At a fast gallop you train every muscle, to discover the woods and meadows you change to a leisurely stride and afterwards a massage provides regeneration.

Horse lovers with a longing for a wellness break simply choose a hotel with riding facilities. From a wellness hotel with a riding stable, to the option of taking your own horse with you on holiday, to riding facilities near the hotel, there are many different ways of combining riding and wellness.

Horse riding for the children, wellness for the parents

The Hotel Sonnenpark knows exactly how to teach children the right way to handle these noble animals. Because in the adventure land "Sunny" there is a riding hall and its own stables. In addition, a trained team is on hand to teach children from the age of three years to handle the animals properly. For parents who are enthusiastic about wellness and children who are enthusiastic about horses, this combination is perfect. And otherwise the whole family can enjoy a wellness holiday together in one of the four aqua landscapes, in the family sauna or with other play and fun activities in the Hotel Sonnenpark.

Riding and Wellness holiday for families

The children want a riding holiday, the parents rather need wellness? Both are possible at the family and wellness hotel Allgäuer Berghof. Attached to the hotel is a riding farm with ponies and horses that make the hearts of many riding fans beat faster. Whether it's a round of stroking, pony fun for small children or real riding lessons: in this wellness hotel everyone gets their money's worth. Both young and old animal lovers will also find various other animals from rabbits to donkeys and goats.
