Wellness in the Black Forest of Germany
in the Black Forest
The Black Forest in Germany is especially popular with active travelers who love outdoor activities. But did you know that there is also a wide range of offerings for travelers who prefer to enjoy gastronomic pleasures rather than sports? And that there is a wide range of offerings for active travelers who also enjoy wellness? Discover this hotel with wellness in the Black Forest.
The Black Forest
For decades, the Black Forest has been a popular vacation destination with Belgians and Dutch. We admit: especially among a slightly older audience, Germany is the favorite travel destination. But after the corona crisis, when we all sought the connection with nature (again), more and more young adults also became fans of Germany. And that has remained.
We think Germany is a wonderful and varied destination. However, the Black Forest was unknown territory for us until recently. Strange, because this part of Germany offers everything we enjoy: the beauty of nature, lots of outdoor activities, cozy hotels and wellness opportunities!
Vier Jahreszeiten am Schluchsee
If you want to combine these activities, the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten am Schluchsee in Baden-Württemberg is the right place for you. This grand five-star hotel offers 4,000m2 of wellness facilities and is located in the southern part of the Black Forest, near the Swiss border. The hotel is ideal for families as well as couples or friends. You alternate active outdoor activities with relaxing in the spa.
And those spa possibilities are endless! From a large (indoor) pool to sauna, steam room and salt cave. We additionally tried the couples massage called “Black Forest Baumritual” and enjoyed it like never before. Thanks to experienced masseurs and the use of hot stones, even our overworked muscles finally come to rest. As icing on the cake, we were treated to a plate of fresh fruit and a glass of cava afterwards. So get ready for pure pampering at this luxury wellness hotel.
The hotel also offers spacious and comfortable rooms and the opportunity to dine six courses in their traditionally decorated Panorama restaurant. Of course, with a beautiful view. By the way, you won’t want to skip the breakfast buffet either. Fresh eggs, homemade pancakes, choice of up to 10 different breads and even more toppings… You name it, they serve it! After all that delicious food, you will no doubt have enough energy to start the day.
Of course, there is more to do in the area than just enjoy wellness. For example, we went mountain biking with an e-bike around Schluchsee. Along the way you pass through varied scenery that makes you want to pause every 5 minutes. You can also do this perfectly well on foot or choose another hike. Plenty of choice for different routes. Be sure to make a stop at the Riesenbühlturm, located within walking distance of the Vier Jahreszeiten Hotel. Built in 2001, the tower provides a stunning panoramic view of the lake. Weather permitting, you can even spot the Alps in the distance.
Obviously, this is the right place to relax and escape from the daily hustle and bustle. Planning an extended weekend or a vacation? Then definitely ‘s consider this wellness hotel in the Black Forest.
