There are places that simply feel magical. Be it a certain light, a smell or a place of power that seems to literally attract you. Sometimes you also experience moments when you rethink your previous life and are ready to find yourself anew. The following four destinations have a reputation for being particularly spiritual places.

Bagan, Myanmar

Bagan was once the capital of the historically very valuable kingdom of Pagan. Around the 11th century, more than 10,0000 Buddhist temples, monasteries and pagodas were found there. Today, many of these buildings still exist and convey a unique atmosphere. Whoever visits the area in Myanmar is also embarking on a journey into the past. Because the ancient buildings, combined with the breathtakingly beautiful landscape, create a unique experience and make visitors believe they have traveled to another world. A world where time seems to stand still and you can think about what really counts in life.

Stonehenge, England

The Stonehenge in England is definitely one of the most iconic places in the world. The stone circle, which was created in the Neolithic period, is still considered one of the greatest mysteries of mankind. Even now, historians do not know with certainty what the structure actually served or was intended to serve. Nor is it clear who built it. What is clear, however, is that this mysterious structure is located in Amesbury and attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. Stonehenge has also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986. If you believe the English legends, the stones originally came from Africa and have a healing effect. The best thing to do is to see for yourself, visit the millennium-old building and let yourself be enchanted.

Koekohe Beach, New Zealand

There is something very spiritual about New Zealand. The mystical landscapes make you open your body and mind a bit and maybe change your perspective on how you see life. A very special place is Koekohe Beach on the South Island of New Zealand. What visitors find there may look like petrified dragon eggs at first glance. But in reality it is a special rock that was formed millions of years ago from fossils, shells and small stones. These so-called spherical stones have a diameter of up to 3.5 meters. A sight that you will certainly never forget.

Machu Picchu, Peru

The world famous ruined city in Peru is also called the lost city of the Incas. The masterpiece in the Andes was built as early as the 15th century. To this day, the place is considered one of the strongest and powerful places in the world. The construction of the city as well as the panorama of the Urubamba Valley literally draw you in. When you are at an altitude of 2,400 metres in the wild Andes saddle, your previous life can pass you by. It is not for nothing that Machu Picchu is considered a spiritual place where people find new paths.

Pamukkale, Turkey

If you want to enjoy a natural spectacle in a class of its own and have a spiritual experience at the same time, you should travel to Turkey. To Pamukkale, to be exact. Because this amazing place has a gorgeous natural pool that runs in terraces. The attraction is located in the valley of the Menderes River. Literally translated, "Pamukkale" means something like "cotton". The limestone terraces owe this name to their white colour. But the special thing about them is not only their appearance. The natural pools also contain 30 to 40 degree warm thermal springs. As early as 2000 years ago, people suffering from circulatory problems, rheumatism and heart disease are said to have sought and found healing here. In the meantime, however, bathing in the springs has been banned in order to protect the natural heritage from pollution.
