Relax, retreat, rethink

We go to wellness hotels for many reasons. We work hard so we deserve it. We are heartbroken, so we deserve it. We have anniversaries, birthdays, name days, joy, sorrow, kids, no kids, lost our job, got a job… so we deserve it. In fact, sitting in the spa, musing about life while your mind and muscles are pampered is one of those uplifting moments in life. Well, up to the point when you see other guests circulating around ‘your’ Jacuzzi or giving an urging look through the window of the infra sauna, as a slight indication that you are sitting inside for more than 15 minutes. This can certainly kill those moments when you felt you breath with the place. Suddenly the well deserved vacation turns into a sneaky fight for deck chairs and for a good position under the neck massage jet.

Berlin never sleeps

Berlin has always been a top pic among hip travelers. We love it for its profound history, abundant culture, underground bars and cosmopolitan atmosphere. It’s so wanted by the young crowd around the world that in a Lufthansa competition a Swedish guy – among 41 others – went as far as to change his name from the absolute normal Michael Andersson to hilarious sounding Klaus-Heidi (a mix of German male and female name) to win a new life in the German capital prepaid by the airline. So how Berlin can keep on attracting a good number of visitors year by year?

However this great city in the Bavarian region of Germany has lots of hidden gems to offer the urban traveler looking for something distinctive.

Back in 2011 I spent 6 amazing months in the “secret capital” of Bavaria and during this time I tried to explore its treasures from a different angle. Now to relive the great moments I had there, I’ve put together a day tour to share it with all you guys looking for these small bits of extra tips to avoid the crowd when visiting this great place anytime during the year. So let’s start the tour.
