Charming spas and sauna landscapes in Germany – where wellness is celebrated

Hardly any other country can look as proud of its wellness landscape as Germany. It is not just a matter of basking in healing waters, but of taking body and soul into a world that normally requires more time, money and distance. Those who do not go back to the roots of the thermal, sauna and wellness cultures of Europe, Africa or Asia will relax in their home regions. We present the highlights of the most extraordinary wellness temples.
