Allgäu: Where Originality Feels at Home

Simone Sever

Ice-blue streams, green meadows, peaceful lakes, and stormy mountain peaks: The nature in Allgäu captivates travelers all year round. In line with its natural originality, we have discovered five wellness hotels in the Allgäu that complement the unforgettable outdoor experience with a special indoor experience.

Rejuvenation with Swiss Pine

The Swiss pine, native to the Alps, has always been attributed mystical powers. Powers that have been transformed into a relaxing nature experience at the Das Weitblick Allgäu hotel. Pure relaxation awaits with the Swiss pine vital massage. During a one-hour spa treatment with the incomparable scent of regional wood and the gentleness of Swiss pine oil, muscle blood circulation is improved, tensions are released, and the autonomic nervous system is soothed. Afterward, more relaxation awaits in the Allgäu relaxation room. This silent room features fragrant hay wallpaper. So, take a deep breath; the Weitblick Allgäu is the perfect place for it.

Hiking, Wellness, Wine

The Hotel Prinz-Luitpold-Bad, a cozy, family-run, and climate-neutral hotel, not only impresses with its secluded location amidst the Hindelanger mountains but also with its own vineyard. Here, host and winemaker Armin Gross transforms the region’s original treasures into exquisite wine. However, not only a nice glass of wine is found while in the middle of the Allgäu nature. The region around the hotel is also known for idyllic hiking routes. Particularly picturesque: the route to Engeratsgundsee or the famous Schrecksee. After a completed hike, a large wellness area with an outdoor pool, natural brooks, and a pond awaits. Or, indulge in a treatment with water from the hotel’s mineral spring in the beautifully renovated bathing room before savoring Armin Gross’s treasures. Cheers!

Holistic Naturality

At the Hubertus Mountain Refugio Allgäu, guests enjoy a holistic activity program, from head to toe. For example, during the nature bathing excursion with Wolfgang Zeller to the Nagelfluhkette Nature Park, where every rustling leaf is discovered with all the senses. Or during the mountain forest excursions in the protective forest directly above the Hubertus with the district foresters Andreas Fisel and Toni Specht from the Bavarian Forestry Administration, which are both instructive and exciting. Also delightful are the herbal workshops at the hotel, where guests gather regional medicinal plants and learn to transform them into natural cosmetics, smoothies, or dishes. Obviously, it’s 100% natural!
