Wellness Hotel Kranzbach
Time Out says
For Munich locals and loyalists, it’s what outside town that seduces as much as the city centre’s charms. With the mountains so close, many a weekend is made up of hiking, skiing or replenishing in a sumptuous Alpine spa. One of the best of the best is the Kranzbach, an expansive, idyll, one and a half hour drive outside of Munich, at the foot of Germany’s highest peak, the Zugspitze. Surrounded by protected upland meadows and romantic pine forests, the Arts and Crafts-style building dates back to 1915, but offsets its rather imposing frontage with opulent, colorful interiors from Elle Decoration’s founding editor, Isle Crawford. The hotel offers a host of yoga, detox, Ayurveda and personal training programs, but with mountain views and fluffy robes like these, staying in bed or bathing in the outdoor pool is perhaps the most restorative bliss of all.
