Achtung Baby! Discover the Spas of Germany

Germany’s appreciation of the healing benefits of spas dates back to the 19th century when towns such as Baden Baden in the country’s southwestern region of Baden-Württemberg became hotspots on the well-heeled travelers map and were visited by aristocrats and their entourages from across Europe. In fact, this was just a scene from history repeating itself, since it was the Roman emperors who first discovered and enjoyed the hot mineral springs of Germany.

Today, you can choose from mud baths and mineral-rich hot springs, sophisticated anti-aging and de-stressing treatments by the Northern or Baltic sea shore, at ski resorts and of course at urban centres such as Berlin.
