If you don't like to travel in the winter, after reading this post you might change your mind. Apart from visiting museums or having something hot in a cozy café, what else is there to do on a trip to Germany in the wintertime?
The truth is that it doesn’t matter when, Germany always has beautiful places to visit and explore anytime of year. Not to mention that the Germans have a special interest in issues that are also very important to us: health and well-being.
With that in mind, we selected tips from two of our favorite German cities, so you can discover the best they have to offer and decide what your next destination will be this winter!
Treat your body and soul well in Berlin
If there is something you must do in Berlin, it is spend a day at the Vabali spa. This "oasis" of well-being is a gift to yourself in every way. The place transports you directly to Bali, inviting you to a well-deserved rest in the heart of Berlin.
The spa has two floors and has approximately 20,000 square meters, offering everything you can imagine for a day of well-being: heated pools, jacuzzis, saunas, massages and treatments, rooms with fireplaces, as well as a restaurant with great food at fair prices.
If you are a plant lover like us and if you like cozy places to have breakfast or enjoy a flavorful tea, we recommend the House of Small Wonder restaurant and café. Directly from Williamsburg, New York to Berlin.
With a spectacular atmosphere and great decor, its culinary concept has numerous Japanese influences: homemade food with organic and local ingredients. Homemade bread, croissants and freshly baked cakes are freshly made throughout the day.
In wintertime in Germany, it is very important to plan where you’re going and how long you will be walking outside on the streets. For this reason, the Markthalle Neun is a good option, it’s an indoor market you can stroll through, offering many options of local gastronomy and shelter from the cold weather.
The market has a special concept: "eat and buy in a different way." Suppliers are local producers who know the history behind their products. An artisanal bakery, a small brewery, typical German cake kiosks and a wide variety of Turkish, Arabic, Greek, and Italian cuisine.
In addition, the market offers space for projects that address issues relating to nutrition, agriculture, biodiversity and the environment.
Healthy Fast Food + Day Spa in Munich
Munich is full of good surprises. One of them is the exclusive day spa in the center of the city: Organic Luxury, a place well-worth the visit, where you can even find Per Purr products among other niche brands.
Focused on sensory and wellness experiences, both in the treatments and in the products offered in the store, Organic Luxury shows that taking care of yourself with high-quality products, combined with the desire to use products without synthetic additives, is no longer a luxury, but part of the routine of many people also concerned about what they’re using on the skin.
There is nothing better than warm soups and broths in the winter, and Germany is the ideal place to have delicious soups. We recommend Urban Soup: a super authentic place they like to call “Healthy Fast Food” in Munich.
All soups are made with high-quality regional and organic products, and they also offer take-out, ideal for those who are travelling and do not want to waste time. And what we like: the soups are served in recyclable jars that you can return there or reuse them yourself.
We also would like to recommend a visit to the beauty center Cremebar Beauty & Wellness, a space with a pleasant atmosphere that offers facial and body treatments, as well as advice from their team of experts.
Cremebar also has an online cosmetics shop where you can find Per Purr products in Munich.
Enjoy these tips, and don't forget to take a Per Purr travel kit with you on your next trip!
