Whilst Germany is not on most Brit's holiday wish list, we think our two carefully selected destinations - an Ayurvedic spa and wellness resort, and an action packed family resort - might just make a convert of you yet.

For further details about the famous Ayurvedic spa resort near the pretty town of Traben-Trarbach, simply click  Parkschlosschen

If you're looking for a fantastic family summer holiday, we recommend Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps.

Weather and seasons

Northern Germany is affected by the North Atlantic Drift making year round temperatures mild.  As you travel further south the seasons become more defined, winters are still mild and Summers are warm and can exceed 30 °C. Further South and in the Alpine regions snow falls during the Winter months, whilst the Summers are warm and sunny like those associated with the Alps.

Escape to a pristine sanctuary of magical beauty in the Bavarian Alps. A truly extraordinary resort that's a wonderful playground for both adults and families.



traben trarbach, germany   

This elegant art deco house is a calm and collected place to experience the ancient therapy of Ayurveda. Set on the edge of a quiet town surrounded by vineyards, the clinic is all clean lines and white spaces. Delicious smells of ayurvedic herbs and spices infuse the corridors, and there’s a peaceful, civilised atmosphere. Bedrooms are spacious and well-designed.
