Our guide to a relaxed weekend get-away
Text: Svenja Nowak
Need a break from life? Just one or two days away from all the work stress? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. With our guide to a relaxed weekend get-away you can escape real life for a bit. Just sit back, read through it and decide – do you want to relax in a hot tub at the spa, do you prefer some time off over a nice dinner or would you like to relax in the great outdoors.
Floating in a pool and getting pampered in surroundings that truly make you feel like you’re in Bali – without being there. The Vabali Spa in Berlin and Dusseldorf will make your dream come true. Various pools, saunas, massages and relaxation rooms with heated waterbeds; the Vabali Spa has got it all. Even though you’re still in the city (the Berlin Vabali Spa is located 500m from the central station) you’ll feel like you’re on holiday on the tropical island.

Located in Bad Zwischenahn, 30km from the North Sea, you’ll find refuge hidden in the woods – welcome to Resort Baumgeflüster. The New York magazine Departures listed the resort on their worldwide “Top Ten Treehouse Resorts”. Amongst the trees you’ll easily find peace; there’s no TV nor radio, just you and nature.
Is fine dining whilst looking down on the city of Berlin your way of relaxing? In that case we’ve got the right address for you: The Skykitchen in Berlin welcomes its guests on the 12th floor of the Vienna House Andel’s Berlin. There are 55 seats at the tables, but only eight seats at the windowsill so make sure to be quick to grab one of those seats to fulfil your special dining experience.
Fancy hotels or restaurants aren’t your definition of relaxation, but spending time in the outdoors is? Don’t worry, we’ve also got the perfect place for you! Bad Wildbad in the Black Forest offers dozens of activities to relax outside. On the Sommerberg you’ll find a treetop walk, a funicular mountain railway, the suspension bridge WILDLINE and even a fairy-tale path – all amongst amazing views. 93 per cent of the city are covered by forests which means that there’s enough space for everyone: Hiker, biker and walker.
Does spending your time away on the water so you’re far away from anything that could annoy you sound promising? Le Boat is making your wish come true with their houseboats. The best thing: You don’t have to worry about a boat licence – because you don’t need one! There are different places to pick up the houseboats. You can choose from Berlin, Mecklenburg or Brandenburg. There’s space for up to twelve people, so feel free to bring a couple of friends along to travel down the water together at a relaxing speed of 12 km/h.
