2. Wellness in the radon mine: In the footsteps of Friedrich Lichtenstein in Gastein

In the footsteps of Mr. Supergeil Friedrich Lichtenstein (the type from the Edeka advertising), I have looked at the Gastein Valley - including treatment in Radon-Heilstollen- and exciting found. For stressed-out professionals and smaller meeting groups with an original supporting program definitely worth the trip.

Best of HR –®

Pittoresque walks

Picturesque, but a little narrow, the Gastein valley with the three villages Dorf Gastein, Bad Hofgastein and Bad Gastein meanders along the Acher river ... The last snow is still on the mountains in March, while the spring green is not quite down in the valley has arrived. A great picture that offers you in diffuse sunlight when hiking on the 5 KM long Gasteiner Höhenweg - by the way, the only hiking path with toilet houses I know of so far

The Gasteiner valley is also good for some surprises: the place was already known in the 19 as early as in the Middle Ages for its medicinal springs. Century as a fashionable spa resort World famous, especially by guests such as Emperor Franz Josef I and Empress Elisabeth, Prince Bismarck, Grillparzer, Schubert, or Schopenhauer.

Friedrich Lichtenstein finds space for new ideas

Several stately hotels originate from this glorious time of the Belle Epoque, giving Bad Gastein its mundane and morbid flair, and the most impressive examples of which, such as the Badeschloss or the Grand Hotel de l'Europe, are grouped around the waterfall. It is this combination of rugged, alpine nature and urban architecture that makes Bad Gastein unique worldwide. It is all the more sad that a large part of the building is now empty because the Duval family in Vienna, who acquired five buildings in the 90s, neither sell still - as originally promised - wants to renovate.

Paradoxically, it is precisely this situation that should make the place a magnet for artists and intellectuals from the big cities. The most prominent of you is undoubtedly Friedrich Lichtenstein from Berlin, who has become known for his super horny appearance in an Edeka advertising mockery and who is an avowed Gastein fan - so much that he named an entire concept album after the place and is quoted in interviews with the statement: "Where buildings are empty, there is a lot of space for new ideas."

Hofgastein or Bad Gastein?

Best of HR –®

I personally found the atmosphere in Bad Gastein itself, which is also called Monaco of the alps, a little sad and me is also this hipster hype a little suspect. I would rather prefer the Hofgastein, which is located next door, that in its simplicity offers the relaxed charm of a holiday resort and also offer excellent hotels:

For example, the Hotel Bismarck, which despite its three houses only offers space for 132 guests, has fascinated me. It moves almost to five-star level, with elegant design and beautifully appointed rooms and suites at a good price-performance ratio (from 100 Euro including half board) and is also suitable for smaller groups - the library with screen leaves also use as a meeting room. It also offers its guests four thermal pools and various saunas.

At the Impulshotel Tirol, on the other hand, 70 rooms for up to 130 guests, from 117 Euro per person and half board, guests can realize themselves in their own studio or book an art workshop - as a complementary program for skiing or to the hotel's wellness area, next to a thermal bath and Saunas also offers unique uses, such as a radon bath. Art, you notice, is the great passion of hotelier Christoph Weiermayer, the Impuls Hotel Tirol with its sculptures and large-format paintings has given a distinctive touch.

Mine with healing effects

At all, radon is the real key feature of the resort: in the former 2,5 KM long mining gallery where attempts were made to break down gold in the 40 years, mild overheating (37 to 43 degrees Celsius), high and even tropical air humidity a natural, high radon content of the air for healing and relaxing effects.

Radon releases inflammatory agents in the body that stimulate the body's own cell repair mechanism and reduce the activity of inflammatory cells such as pain medications. Thus, the so-called radon heat therapy leads to long-lasting natural pain relief in inflammatory rheumatic diseases such as chronic polyarthritis and Bechterew's disease, rheumatic diseases and chronic painful conditions.

In practice, it looks like you are entering the tunnels in one go, with the train stopping at different stations at different temperatures. Then you lie in the swimsuit 60 minutes on wooden loungers - that's about as in the sauna, except that you can not weg weg and must wait until one of the train picks up again. Personally, I found that to be extremely distressing, but it seems to be helpful for chronic pain patients with more frequent treatment.

3. Workplace health management with a difference: Mountain meetings with a doctor's check-up

One of the most exciting hotels that has recently visited is the Graseck near Garmisch Partenkirchen - and not only because of the arrival by cable car: Für About It offers a combination of exclusive meetings and health checkup.

Oldest small train of the world

Already the arrival in the oldest, fully automatic small train of the world, year 1953, is a special feature:

With two small gondolas, not only guests can float over the picturesque Partnach Gorge, a 700-meter-long gorge in the Reintal valley that is partially cut over 80 meters by the Partnach torrent.

From the forest house….

The top is the boutique hotel Das Graseck, which opened in 2015. The former royal Bavarian forester's house is located at an altitude of 900 meters in the middle of the nature reserve. From here the first expedition to the Zugspitze was undertaken, during which the summit cross was erected in 1851.

The forester's house was converted into a mountain inn only after it was sold from state ownership. In November 1968, the mountain inn burned down to the ground. During the reconstruction in 1970, a 3-star hiking hotel with an attached new building was built.

Best of HR –®

… To the boutique hotel

In May 2015 opened the two doctors Dr. Sylvia and Dr. Vincens Weingart after extensive renovations the Graseck again as an exclusive boutique hotel with attached medical practices, where guests in a beautiful ambience can perform preventive medical check-ups.

By the way, my absolute favorite place in the hotel is the 20 square meter pool with a temperature of 34 degrees. It doesn't look absolutely great on photos, but also offers a very picturesque view of the Wetterstein Mountains when you lie in it. Unfortunately, it is only too small for swimming, which is about to change in the future.

Best of HR –®

Room and wellness area

The 38 rooms are for the most part extremely spacious and modern furnished with solid wood furniture, partly extra-large beds and parquet floor. In the panorama rooms you have directly from the bed a fantastic view of the mountain panorama.

You can also enjoy the mountain panorama in the noble wellness area: In addition to the steam sauna and infrared cabin, there is a Finnish sauna, of course also with a view of the Wetterstein Mountains. A very rich fruit offer is available for refreshment.

Meeting rooms and conference package

For small meetings practically in the middle of nature, two meeting rooms of 65 sqm and 100 sqm are available, set-up costs and location fee per room and day are 150 and 250 euros respectively.

For a conference flat rate of 20 euros per person per day, drinks and standard conference technology such as projector, screen, flipchart, pin board and moderation case are available, additional technology and catering are available on request and at an additional cost.

Best of HR –®

Events and supporting program

The small size of the hotel is attractive for companies, as it can also be booked in full for company events - an option that many car companies in particular make use of again and again.

The hotel also offers the organization of an extensive program including: Zugspitze and Partnachklamm, torchlight hikes, cross-country skiing, biathlon, Schnuchschuwanderungen, mountain bike and climbing, and Seagwaytouren, rafting and even soapbox races.

Corporate Health Management

However, it is quite unique for companies to have their employees checked in as part of company health management - private health insurance companies also cover the costs.

The range of medical services covers internal medicine, urology, dermatology, gynecology, dentistry and sports and nutritional medicine. The costs are based on the scope of the investigations between 335 and 1590 Euro.

Best of HR –®

Healthy lifestyle

In addition, the physicians also provide advice on teaching a healthy lifestyle, which should also be part of a company health management in order to maintain the performance of the employees.

In this context, the hotel also offers workshops with partners in stress management or smoking cessation.

Best of HR –®

Healthy eating

Finally, the healthy cuisine is recommended, which is offered in the two restaurants and in summer in the beer garden. It also offers vegetarian and vegan dishes.

In addition, the kitchen is also on special wishes in the diet. By the way, you can also enjoy the wonderful view of the Wetterstein Mountains here.

Corporate health is definitely on the rise as a trend: Companies have recognized how helpful corporate health management is for Employer Branding is. One possibility: thermal baths with a fitness studio - where you can also meet celebrities.

The history of the Kannewischer-Collection

The Kannewischer Collection, that is six thermal baths at five locations throughout Germany. However, the origins lie in Baden Baden, where the company 1994 with the Caracalla-Therme and the Friedrichsbad took over the first own baths.

At the same time, company founder Bernd Kannewischer actually became a baden specialist by chance. He founded 1972 in Zug, Switzerland, as an engineering company and planned 44 public indoor, outdoor, spa and thermal baths as well as hotel wellness and fitness facilities in Germany, the 250 Switzerland, France and Italy the technology.

He was also instrumental in the design of the Caracalla thermal spa, which opened in 1985, and took it on in 1993 as a tenant. The thermal bath built in a joint venture between city and country is considered a pioneer of modern wellness culture. Previously, thermal baths were strongly oriented towards rehabilitation and mostly had square pools. In Baden-Baden more healthy people should be addressed for the first time and the idea of ​​prevention should be pursued. The slogan was "healthy bathing that is fun".

Corporate Health: How employees get fit for the job

This is exactly the idea that the company pursues today in its offers for employers, in which the topic of corporate health is increasingly moving into focus: prevention and stress reduction in order to keep employees as fit as possible despite all workloads. With such offers, employers ultimately also show that they are actively trying to attract their employees with such offers in the course of employer branding.

What are the advantages of a thermal bath? According to a study by the Medical University of Graz and the State Hospital St. Pölten, a 25-minute thermal bath already leads to a significant reduction in the cortisol content in saliva, which is considered a stress indicator. In addition, volunteers indicated that they felt much more relaxed bathing in well-tempered pools than those practicing other relaxation techniques. In addition, her pain on joints and spine noticeably decreased.

How thermal baths reduce the burden

The ideal temperature is around 35 ° C, which is felt to be particularly pleasant from a thermal point of view, because the body neither cools down nor overheats without movement. From a medical point of view, staying in the water also promotes the feeling of wellbeing for other reasons: The hydrostatic pressure promotes blood flow to the tissue and blood return to the heart, which stimulates the circulation.

The buoyancy and the associated decrease in weight, with the head above the surface only ten percent of it on land, relieves the entire musculoskeletal system, which can recover and loosen up; Brine even makes for a limbo. Moreover, water resistance enhances the training effect because movements are more strenuous and the muscles are more demanding - a concomitant factor that plays an important role in improving physical performance in prevention and rehabilitation.

If the water also contains salubrious minerals, which can affect the body even better through the heat, they will nourish the skin. Moreover, during an osmotic process they penetrate through the pores into the body and provide a deep effect on joints, metabolism or organs as well as on the cardiovascular system.

Thermal baths - anti-stress centers with a long tradition

Thermal baths are by no means a new invention and have a long tradition, especially in Baden-Baden: “Aquae Aureliae” was the name of the Roman settlement around hot springs. At the foot of the Schlossberg, Emperor Caracalla had soldiers' baths built, their well-preserved facilities, including towering walls and a sophisticated heating system. The ruins were uncovered in archaeological excavations and are now accessible to visitors in a small museum.

Directly above 1869 came up to 1877 Friedrichsbad: An opulent construction style of the Neo-Renaissance with richly decorated façade, hand-painted majolica tiles, stucco, statues and and a foyer that housed 1884 the first gym in Germany.

But the Friedrichsbad offers a very extraordinary experience that clearly stands out from the rest of the world Concept of many modern bathrooms. Refer to the Roman bathing tradition on the spiegelThe images for men and women are 17 stations that each visitor goes through in a given sequence. First, the extraordinary historical shower heads wash away the stress of everyday life: they are oversized and operated with large levers. Then the body is gradually warmed up in several steps.

Best of HR –®

Applications like Bill Clinton and Udo Lindenberg

It turns out that even the treatment refrained from modern Schnick-Schnack and rather oriented to traditional Kneipp cure. For example, an intermediate station is a stimulating soap-brush massage that scrubs 8 for minutes with thick-bristled brushes and curd soap. After steam bath, bubble baths and cold pools, the highlight of the treatment is clearly bathing in a circular exercise pool under the 18 meter high dome of a temple-like hall, where you suddenly feel relegated to Roman times for 2000 years.

Finally, visitors are pampered with a cream massage before they practice an 30-minute power nap under preheated sheets in the relaxation room. No wonder that the Friedrichsbad already attracted celebrities like Bill Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev or Udo Lindenberg.

The history of Baden-Baden

The modern spa business in Baden Baden can also look back on a long history: it has been developing since the beginning of the 16th century and flourished in the 19th century when nobles from all over Europe flocked to the "summer capital of Europe" to spend weeks in sophisticated atmosphere and healthy. Among the guests were the Russian scribblers Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, the latter in particular lost a lot of money in the well-known casino

But Baden Baden has much more to offer: the casino, where once the Russian poets Dostojewski and Tolstoy lost money, the Festspielhaus, the Museum Frieder Burda, designed by the American star architect Richard Meier or the Lichtentaler Allee by park and gardens along the Oos.

The hot springs

The special feature, however, is that the hotel not only has a sauna and spa in the basement, but also operates its own geothermal spa facility in Laugarvatn Fontana, an hour's drive outside of Rekjavik.

The water comes from a natural geothermal spring that has been in use since 1929 and fluctuates between 40 ° C and 50 ° C.

Thermal baths in the Golden Circle

The complex is located in the heart of the Golden Circle, one of the most popular travel routes in South Iceland, where one can visit Iceland's most important sightseeing in one day:

The former Thing site Þingvellir in the national park of the same name, the geothermal area Haukadalur with various geysers, the waterfall Gullfoss, whose name “golden waterfall” coined the term Golden Circle and the former bishopric Skálholt.
