On the Lower Rhine, country style meets lifestyle. The ultra-modern "Livingroom Spa" in particular is a haven in space and time on 4,000 square meters: The velvety-soft design with wooden elements, hanging armchairs, waterbeds and long-pile sofas promises instant comfort. All around spoil among other things five different saunas and pools, two steam baths, a Hamam and completely special rest areas. In the Room of Silence, for example, you can look into the open fireplace or the green wellness garden. You can borrow books to relax in the library. Even more remarkable is the spa cinema, where guests are entertained in comfort. The treatment rooms, where baths are named after Audrey Hepburn and James Dean, are also movie-worthy.

A true oasis of peace for wellness vacationers and nature lovers is the Seezeitlodge in Saarland, in the middle of the Saar-Hunsrück Nature Park. The wellness area extends over 2700 square meters and offers an indoor and outdoor area full of luxury. The team attaches great importance to the historical roots of the region; almost long-forgotten knowledge from the healing art of the Celts is used here, translated in a contemporary way and yet remains original. The spa is a true place of power that invites you to find yourself and stay there. The infusions change under the sign of the Celtic cycle of the year. For more freshness and radiance, a visit to the beauty center is recommended, which scores with a variety of treatments.
