1. Meetings & Corporate Health near Berlin: The Spreewald Therme
Meetings and health management for your Employees Combining is a new trend that is becoming more and more popular Corporate pick up. A good opportunity to do so, the Spreewaldtherme with attached hotel a good hour south of Berlin.
Therme and hotel in the UNESCO biosphere reserve Spreewald
The magic of the Spreewald UNESCO biosphere reserve only opened up to me late: I have to admit that I have never been there in the five years that I have lived in Berlin. I was all the more enthusiastic about the relaxing Effect, which just showed up during a boat trip in winter while we were gliding in complete silence across the Spree, which was still partially frozen.
The Spreewald Thermehotel has 83 rooms, the thermal baths have numerous indoor and outdoor pools with thermal water at different temperatures, a floating pool and infrared cabins. In the sauna area, saunas with different equipment and temperatures up to 95 degrees offer a variety of saunas to regenerate and relax. Various infusions in the Spreewald sauna provide even more variety. Both buildings are connected by a "bathrobe corridor" via which hotel and conference guests can reach the Spreewald Therme, which is exclusively available to them in the morning between 8 and 9 a.m.
Corporate Health for companies
How can companies benefit from the Spreewald-Therme? The baths of the Kannewischer Collection are represented all over Germany and offer companies, for example, major customer discounts for admission to the thermal baths or special promotions such as the health day in the thermal baths, which includes a seminar, a fitness and relaxation course, water aerobics and 3 hours of free admission to the thermal baths included at a reduced price. In the Spreewald Therme, morning fitness in the form of aqua gymnastics or Nordic walking is also offered to hotel and conference guests.
The Spreewald Therme also has its own air-conditioned training area with the FitnessPanorama. Under professional guidance, you can either get your body into shape on your own or take part in courses ranging from indoor cycling to a healthy back to functional training.
Strategic Meetings Indoor and Outdoor
There are also special offers for companies and their employees, but also targeted trainings with a personal trainer, prevention courses, reduced weekly rates or special theme packages are possible. Moreover, the Spreewald-Therme is an ideal place for seminars and strategic meetings.
There are three function rooms with capacity for up to 100 people. Video projector, screen, flipchart, pinboard, presentation case, pads, pens and free Wi-Fi access in the seminar area and adjacent lobby. In addition to the three conference rooms the possibility of seminars, meetings and banquets is also outdoors, to implement directly on site at Erlenhain or on the idyllic banks of the Spree.
In general, the cuisine is an outstanding aspect of the thermal baths and hotel for me. Even the breakfast is unusually rich for a four-star hotel selection from fresh, healthy ingredients to boiled potatoes with quark and linseed oil – you can tell that the hotel spends 80.000 euros a year on fruit and vegetables, and lunch and dinner also focus on healthy, regional, down-to-earth cuisine.
Even more rustic is the guesthouse “Zum Schlangenkönig”, which is run by the former racing bike world champion and Olympic silver medalist Dirk Meier, who is also the harbor master of the barge company. In his courtyard restaurant there is traditional regional cuisine with that certain something - and that also applies to the vegetarian component. Before that, chef Michael Krause cooked in Austria, St. Moritz Portugal and on the Formula 1 circuits in Belgium, Shanghai and Japan before returning to the Spreewald via Berlin's star gastronomy.
2. Wellness in Haguenau, Alsace: La Source de Sens
Half an hour north of Strasbourg, in the health resort of Morsbronn-les-Bains near Haguenau, lies a French-style wellness hotel with sophisticated cuisine.
Luxury at a second glance
The first impression of the Logis-Hotel La Source de Sens is a little sobering: The former guesthouse is located directly on the street and at first seems less luxurious. The special feature of the house is revealed only when you enter the building, the back of the complex with the modern buildings and the grandiose spa seeks - and eats here.
In fact, owner Pierre Weller has taken the 50 building 2001 built by his father in the 4 years and then gradually transformed it into an 2000 star wellness hotel with an 32 square meter spa area and XNUMX rooms.
Design and nature room
Among them are stylishly modern design and natural rooms - the latter give almost directly the feeling of living in the forest and had to be laboriously built around this. 130 to 185 Euro costs one room during the week, 170 to 240 on weekends.
The ambience impresses above all with the generous window panes, which give the impression of living right in the forest, as well as the puristic and original furniture. Not for nothing is it considered one of three hotels in Alsace under the Brand Logis d'Exception led.
2000 square meter spa
The highlight of the hotel, which was converted for a total of 7 million euros, is, of course, the spa with indoor and outdoor pool, which is also heated in winter, whirlpool, saunas of 75, 85 and 95 degrees Celsius, hammam, chronotherapy, thermo massage, fitness area, various treatment rooms and - of course for an extra charge - private sauna area.
A special feature of the hotel is the Parentese - a two-hour relaxation program consisting of a course with seven stations that alternate in relaxation and activity - a true relaxation source for the senses. The spa area of the hotel is also accessible to external guests - it costs 45 Euro for four hours including shoes and bathrobe.
Also highly recommended is the restaurant where Pierre Weller cooks himself - and although a rather well-known for the more hearty cuisine region rather untypical, very light haute cuisine. Also vegitarian or vegan cuisine is possible on request. Only at the service and at breakfast you have to make a few drawbacks.
Excursions and seminars
For excursions in the surrounding area, the hotel also offers eBikes, which can be hired by the hour or day. A combination with other hotels also allows several-day cycling tours.
There is also a large seminar room, which can be divided into two seminar rooms, which can be rented at a daily flat rate of 85 euros (including coffee breaks and lunch) per person. Companies like Siemens, Mars and delegates from the European Union have already been here.
Overall a very nice hotel for relaxation, as a base for activities and seminars.
3. Days in Germany's highest community: Hubertus Lodge, Balderschwang
The HUBERTUS Alpin Lodge and Spa is located in the highest municipality in Germany, at 1044 m above sea level. The name says it all: the exceptionally designed meetig location will leave you breathless Executives enthusiastic about companies like Würth or Media Markt.
Germany's highest pass
After Balderschwang, 1.044 m located above the sea, leads over the Riedbergpass the highest pass road in Germany. The town is located in a high valley of the Allgäu Alps, is the highest municipality in Germany and at the same time part of the first cross-border Austrian-German nature park naens Nagelfluhkette.
The special location also makes the HUBERTUS Lodge attractive for special meetings: The high valley is known for its abundance of snow and is therefore suitable for all kinds of winter sports activities within the framework of Teambuilding– and incentive events.
A paradise for skiers and outdoor meetings
Worth mentioning here are above all 30 piste kilometers and the dense network of cross-country ski trails, which starts directly at the hotel. On request, outdoor activities, excursions and group training organized - eg sledding, hiking, mountaineering, climbing, mountain biking, Nordic walking, Fakelwanderungen etc. Various equipment, such as poles or snowshoes, can be borrowed free of charge in the hotel.
The extraordinary altitude is also an important factor for the design of the meetings: Balderschwang is not only above the fog line, but is also the ideal place for Strategy-Meetings: No supermarket or other distractions ensure that the participants are distracted, so they can concentrate on the essentials.
Rooms, meeting rooms and design
The hotel has 66 rooms from 134 Euro per person / night, including seven suites and five single rooms, including those for allergy sufferers, with room for a total of 127 guests in five categories. For meetings limited to a maximum of 20 persons, the rooms WeitBlick and BergBlick are available.
They are 65 or 32 qm large, conference technology like beamer, pinboards, flipchart and moderator-suitcases are included in the conference package from 34 per person / day Euro. Only the WLAN, which runs over satellite is partly a bit unreliable, video conferences should rather not plan.
The ambience of the hotel is outstanding: natural woods, slate, stone and textiles such as linen, wool and felt as well as a color palette of gentle natural tones characterize the furnishing style, which combines traditionally regional and untypical elements from the country style. Especially: The library and tearoom is paneled with the wood of the women's convent built in 1280 in Ennetach / Mengen.
Wellness and Spa
In the 2.000 qm large wellness and spa area are a Finnish sauna, a herbal sauna, the wood-fired mountain sauna of approx. 70 ° C, a softsauna a steam bath as well as a year-round heated outdoor pool (33 °) unfortunately a bit small. The spa also offers various treatments, massages and yoga classes.
In 2015 there will be 16 different yoga and mindfulness retreats. Conference participants can also enjoy a “conference massage” with alpine herbal oil to relax mentally and physically.
In fact, the whole atmosphere in the hotel is completely relaxing: I was “down” shortly after arriving - otherwise only a few hotels can do that. To support this, you can give up your smartphone for the whole stay in a kind of cell phone diet.
The food in the Hubertus Lodge is also excellent and healthy, based on the latest findings in nutritional science. The hotel is an active supporting member of the Slow Food movement.
Instead of a mini-bar in the rooms, for example, Lake Constance and the water used as grander water is available in pine ball decoy free. At dinner, however, this service proposes with 2,50 Euro.
On the other hand, the quality of the food is convincing: I have seldom seen a breakfast buffet that makes healthy eating so easy. For example, you can press your own fruit and vegetable juice from fresh ingredients. For breakfast and a vital lunch buffet, guests can also try ayurvedic dishes, prepared by Ayurveda chef Gabriel Simòn Pinero from Mexico.
A main course of the evening meal is served after the Method Prepare Low Glycemic and Insulinemic, LOGI for short; on request, the entire menu can also be served in this way. The food is varied and likes to take up regional themes - such as the appetizer platter as a culinary journey through the Alps.
There is only one restaurant, but with several restaurant parlors: In the Berglarstube, guests take a seat on a heavy board under a collection of cowbells (bells), the Wäldlerstube is a reference to the neighbors in the Bregenzerwald, the wood-clad old farmhouse parlor was faithful to the original taken over from the old HUBERTUS, the Edelweiss parlor as well as the luster-lit crystal parlor are home to today with their modern design. The most beautiful view is the large sun terrace.
4. Exclusive meetings with an alpine lifestyle: Hotel Jungbrunn, Tannheimer Tal
Just behind the German border, in the remote Tannheimer Tal lies the Jungbrunn, which is itself an alpine lifestyle hotel. For meetings, the partner hotel of the VfB Stuttgart, which holds its board meetings here, is a rather exclusive location.
The father of owner Markus Gutheinz 1957 started with a ski lift, in the 70ern it became a hotel. In the 90 years Markus Gutheinz took over the hotel and built it according to his ideas.
In Idea behind it: a concept that works regardless of the weather. Because the Tannheimer Tal is not a classic winter sports area and even in autumn the utilization in the Alps is rather low.
That's why Gutheinz created a concept that is second to none: an extremely successful mixture of alpine tradition and modern design, both in terms of the materials used and Style and architecture.
This is already apparent in the 81 rooms and suites with space for up to 175 guests, all of which are designed in different ways:
The smaller double rooms are more in a Tyrolean design with carved ceilings and wood paneling, the larger double rooms modern, yet comfortable, the apartments are more reminiscent of mountain huts. Price starts one night from 136 Euro per night and room.
The culinary experience
The successful mix is also reflected in other areas of the house: The modern, well-built culinary delights with a six-course menu and various choices on, noon are here - included in the half board - a rich salad buffet and soups.
There is also the inn "Was Guat's vom Berg", a rebuilt, original 300 year old Tyrolean parlor with a modern interpretation of Tyrolean cuisine. Both restaurants are not star gourmet temples, but of excellent quality.
The same applies to the service: Markus Gutheinz and his son Marcel, who will soon take over the hotel, want their lifestyle concept above all else Boy address people.
He is therefore targeting young service staff, knowing that he still has a lot to teach many of them - to do so more in a separate contribution.
The core of the hotel, however, is the 7000qm large SPA: From the design itself, it is the extravagenteste and probably the most beautiful SPA, I have seen so far - with floating glass plates, sandstone walls and running water. The spa area is modeled on a grotto, in the middle of the Jungbrunn, an eche source bubbled.
There is a heated 20m terrazzo outdoor pool, a brinefreibad, an outdoor jacuzzi and the possibility to refresh yourself in the ice-cold natural pond or under the waterfall.
Various saunas such as earth and biosauna, Dampfkamillengrotte, brine grotto or Tepedarium invite you to do so. Overall, a very successful ambience, in which also numerous applications of massages on lymphatic drainage to Ayurveda and Whole body cosmetics are offered. In addition, there are offers for special target groups such as pregnant women or teenagers.
For example, I tried the innovative JuBeWell application, in which radio waves are transmitted to the body, which are supposed to stimulate cell metabolism and fat burning, as well as the Jungbrunn Spezial Signature Treatment with the in-house body care line made from rock crystal salt, Tannheimer dandelion honey. You probably have to do both treatments more often to have an effect. The hotel offers a total of 50 active and relaxation programs, including aqua fit, yoga, Qui Gong, mountain biking, tennis, hiking, golf and Nordic walking. A personal trainer can be booked on request.
For meetings, however, the hotel is only available to a very limited extent: the VFB Stuttgart, for example, its board meetings and is a partner, otherwise the hotel is mainly available to guests for visions or relaxation meetings.
There are two reasons for this: on the one hand, the hotel is almost fully booked with 95% occupancy, on the other hand, people are making up Opinions the proprietor wellness and meetings don't quite go together and groups bring unrest into the house.
Exclusive meeting rooms
Therefore, there are only two meeting rooms with daylight and terrace, beamer, flipchart, screens and audio equipment are also available, but the corresponding rooms are usually used as gymnasium rooms. The large, modern, light-flooded Alpine lounge can also be used for meetings, but it is a transit area and can not be closed.
At all, it is impossible to book the entire house. Groups should therefore book at least one year in advance. And only small meetings up to 15 persons will be accepted. An exclusivity that you can afford.
5. Health all inclusive for meetings & incentives: The BodyHoliday
The BodyHoliday is pursuing a unique concept on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia: All inclusive – and not just for healthy food, but also for sports, massage treatments and the spa. In addition, it has a modern Technology equipped meeting room. However, it costs extra.
Rooms and prices
The BodyHoliday at LeSPORT is a luxury, modern 5 star resort in the north of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia. It has 154 rooms, most of which are equipped with balconies and sea views. The junior suites are equipped with a double balcony, while the 29 single rooms have a view of the garden.
Prices start at around 400 dollars - depending on season and category. In the European summer months, low season in the Caribbean, they can also be schonmal below. The hotel does not have higher prices for single rooms.
Meeting room with innovative technology
The meeting room, which offers space for a maximum of 25 people depending on the seating arrangement, is still comparatively new. Its highlight is the 70″ SMARTBoard, an interactive screen with computer functions. You can not only connect your laptop with VGA, HDMI or WIFI here, but yours Presentation Load them onto the SMARTBoard yourself and edit documents such as pptx, xlsx, docx, web content or whiteboard content directly on the SMARTBoard. It also functions as a whiteboard on which you can write with suitable pens.
The sound system of the room is also linked to the podium, the SMARTBoard and the conference table, all of which have microphones. In addition, the conference room has its own Wi-Fi access, which is separate from the hotel.
Virtual meetings - but not all inclusive
With its SMART Tech Bridgit software, the meeting room therefore enables virtual meetings with participants all over the world World. All the organizers have to do is eMailInvitations with the connection details and then can also share the contents of the smartboard in real time with all participants. Of course there is also the possibility of voice and video conferencing and using the SMARTBoard Skype.
However, the conference room is not included in the all-inclusive offer: it costs 300 US dollars for half a day, 500 US dollars for a full day. The audio-video system costs 250 US dollars per day. For tea and biscuits are charged per unit 5 US dollars per person. The use of external facilities is also possible with a half-day or full-day pass, which also includes various sports activities and / or meals.
Five restaurants are available for the food: the piano bar and the Deli are more for snacks. In the Tao there is Asian fusion cuisine, in the clubhouse guests can take afternoon snacks and tea. Unfortunately, I was looking for a healthy smoothie in vain.
The Cariblue dinner restaurant on the beach, on the other hand, is excellent. When it comes to excellent food, guests can choose between a conventional menu and a “healthy choice”.
Food from the nutrition consultant
The composition of these foods is supervised by nutrition consultants. The drinks at the food and at the bar are included in the all-inclusive price. For breakfast, there is also a buffet section with healthy food, in addition to conventional and fresh dishes, of which the goat's cheese is particularly worth mentioning.
Apart from fruit and salmon, this also includes gluten-free bread, unfortunately not very tasty, as well as the delicious local Cassava bread, whose production can be admired from the roots of the poisonous plant of the same name when visiting the Fond Latisab Creole Park.
Package offer with additional services
The BodyHoliday sees itself as a package holiday offer with the possibility of turning your stay into a healthy holiday. What distinguishes it from other hotels with a healthy diet is the extensive wellness and sports program that is included in the price:
Apart from the fact that you can swim in the sea, which is not recommended in strong currents, there are three pools of different sizes. Each guest receives a 50minütiges treatment per day, such as Ayuveda or various massages in the luxurious spa facility.
In addition, various water sports such as sailing, scuba diving including beginners' lessons or water aerobics are offered. To go out by boat for fishing, diving or water skiing costs however extra.
The hotel also has facilities for tennis (incl. group classes), archery, fencing, volleyball or cycling. There is a golf academy on a slightly reduced golf course for beginners.
Sports courses and personal training
There are also courses in yoga, tai chi, pilates, aerobics, dancing, stretching and gymnastics. TheCourses can be very full, however. For a surcharge, you can also take a personal trainer hour.
