July: Water fun at Lake Constance
Lake Constance is showing its Mediterranean side at summer time. Diverse lidos offer excellent possibilities for bathing and swimming within a lakeshore of 170 kilometers. In many of the lidos, the beach is very flat towards the lake. Because of the low depth of water, kids will find ideal conditions for their first swimming ambitions. The natural beaches are insider tips amongst connoisseurs. The pebble stone beach is natural, flat and borders small forests. Parking lots and restaurants cannot be found, but unspoiled and calm nature. Trend sports such as stand-up paddling and SUP-yoga are on the agenda, as well as paddling and pedal boats. Looking for an accommodation, the Biohotel Mohren is the perfect place to be. Over four generations, the guesthouse has become an organic hotel today and is characterized by lovely rooms and an outstanding culinary offer: everything is hundred per cent organic and taken from the own farm or cattle breeding. At the Spa, guests enjoy an alpine hut sauna, a herbal steam bath, a sanarium, a rocket shower and relaxing garden.
August: Once in a lifetime being a princess….
Have you ever stayed in a castle? On the Swiss part of Lake Constance region, fairy tale dreams will become true at Schloß Wartegg. Already Emperor Zita took a stroll along the majestic English park which is the biggest hotel park in Switzerland. Besides the lovely garden, playful watercourses and soft glades, one can discover the castle sheep. Lovers of culture will like the ambitious culture and concert program – the hotel is a preferred location for solo artists, choirs, ensembles and bands, who get inspired by the wonderful nature. Holiday princesses and princes will relax at the historic “Turquoise Bath”, a bathing oval from 1928. In between, the youngsters are going on a discovery tour. Young naturalists will be enthusiastic about the English Park. Just around the corner of the castle, kids will find a playground. The generously equipped children’s play room guarantees fun. The word “sustainable” is not being overstrained, it is naturally practiced, without ideology. The shortest way from the producer into the kitchen, goes through the castle garden. Here on an area of 2,500 square meters, organic vegetable, herbs, berries and flowers are planted.
September: Flirting & honeymooning on Bali
Bali is the right spot for lovers. The affection of the locals and the beautiful nature are searching one’s peers. The Sol Beach House is the only hotel on Bali built in a natural lagoon, that preserves its authentic flora and fauna. Located on 1.66 hectares at Tanjung Benoa, one will find paradisiacal tropical gardens. Besides the relaxing program with traditional massages, the island is offering much more. Tirta Gangga, the charming former summer place of the last king of Karangasem, is today used as a swimming pool. The temples are, in comparison to other Asian destinations, relatively simple but if you ever join a holy ceremony, you will not be disappointed. The village of Jatiluwih is located at one of the best lookouts of the islands with a view over the rice terraces. To climb the volcany Gunung Batur, with its two tops overlooking the crater lake of a little village, is a must!
