Wellness package deals for bank holiday weekends

Bank holiday weekends are perfect for a spa break. With wellness treatments in the spa, activities in beautiful nature and enjoyable meals, a long weekend can be fully utilised. The short holiday thus becomes a restful break that gives new energy for everyday life. 

What are bank holiday weekends?

A  bank holiday is a national public holiday. Bank holiday weekends are weekends that are extended by a bank holiday. Thus a bank holiday weekend is a long weekend with at least three days off from work. 

If a bank holiday is celebrated on a Thursday or Tuesday, in Germany it is very popular to take the extra day off (between the bank holiday and the weekend). Thus you only have to take one day off from work but can enjoy a longer break of four days.

Especially the days around Christmas, between Christmas and New Year, and around Easter and Whitsun are popular dates for long bank holiday weekends.

Planning a spa break on a bank holiday

Anyone planning a spa break in a wellness hotel should take a close look at bank holidays. If a public holiday is celebrated on Thursday or Tuesday, you can spend a long weekend at the wellness hotel with just taking one day off from work (provided you have the weekend off).

A Spa break is often a short holiday that is planned as a supplement to the main holiday. Long weekends are therefore the ideal opportunity for a spa break. Accordingly, the dates are often in demand. It is therefore worth booking wellness package deals on a bank holiday very early.

Our Bridge days-Tips for you

Superhero for your hangover

After a good night out, the next morning can feel a bit rough. If you do not want to miss out on your cocktail or beer, you should chew on raw ginger before going to bed. The essential oils help breaking down the alcohol better.

Mustard flour keeps you fit

Taking a footbath with mustard flour actively supports your immune system. Put two to three tablespoons of the flour into warm water and then bath your feet in it for 10 to 15 minutes. Afterwards put on thick woolen socks and put your feet up.

Sun protection

In case you cannot get enough from the sun, you should eat a lot of red, orange and green vegetables and fruit. Spinach, peppers, tomatoes and watermelon can help prepare your skin for the effect UV rays have on it.
