UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Spreewald

The magic of the UNESCO biosphere reserve Spreewald opened up to me only late: I must admit that I was never there in my five years, which I lived in Berlin. I was all the more enthusiastic about the relaxing effect, which showed itself during a canoe tour in the winter, while we glided through the still partially frozen Spree in complete silence. Of course there were warm blankets, even a boat with a fireplace is available.

Exactly one such boat tour was the 2006 Dr. Stefan Kannewischer convinced to open a “brine bath of nature” here, almost in the no man's land between Berlin and Dresden near the German border - after he had already opened further baths all over Germany. The thermal brine of the Spreewald thermal spring rises directly below the thermal spring at 1.350 meters and is one of the richest brines with a salt content of 23,9 percent.

Therme and sauna with hotel

In 2012 there was also a four-star hotel with 83 rather functional, modern rooms - prices on weekdays from € 86 per night / person. Since then, the guests have not only come from Berlin and Dresden but from all over Germany. Both buildings are connected by a “bathrobe corridor”, via which hotel and conference guests reach the Spreewald Therme, which is exclusively available to them between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.

The SoleBad has eight baths and a hot-spring basin with a flow channel, with temperatures between 18 and 38 degrees and different brine concentrations. There is also a steam bath and brine inhalation in the form of cucumber casks.

In the sauna garden guests have the choice between crystal-lit sanarium, aroma steam bath, mild caldarium as well as Spreewald, fire sauna with fireplace and herbal sauna. For even more variety hourly various infusions. Finally, two fireplace rooms and the relaxation room with a view of the sauna garden invite you to relax.

Corporate Health for companies

How can companies benefit from the offer of the Spreewald Therme? According to a study by the Medical University of Graz and the State Hospital St. Pölten, a 25-minute thermal bath already leads to a significant reduction in the cortisol content in saliva, which is considered a stress indicator. In addition, volunteers indicated that they felt much more relaxed bathing in well-tempered pools than those practicing other relaxation techniques. In addition, her pain on joints and spine noticeably decreased.

Optimal are about 35 ° C, which are perceived as thermally particularly pleasant, because the body without movement neither cools nor overheated. From a medical point of view, staying in water also promotes well-being for other reasons: The hydrostatic pressure promotes tissue perfusion and blood return to the heart, which stimulates the circulation.

The effect of thermal water

The buoyancy and the associated decrease in weight, with the head above the surface only ten percent of it on land, relieves the entire musculoskeletal system, which can recover and loosen up; Brine even makes for a limbo. Moreover, water resistance enhances the training effect because movements are more strenuous and the muscles are more demanding - a concomitant factor that plays an important role in improving physical performance in prevention and rehabilitation.

If the water also contains salubrious minerals, which can affect the body even better through the heat, they will nourish the skin. Moreover, during an osmotic process they penetrate through the pores into the body and provide a deep effect on joints, metabolism or organs as well as on the cardiovascular system.

In general, the culinary art for me is an outstanding aspect of the spa and hotel. Already the breakfast offers an unusually rich selection of fresh, healthy ingredients for a four-star hotel, as well as jacket potatoes with quark and linseed oil. The hotel spends 80.000 Euro on fruit and vegetables in the year, and you will notice it here at noon - and dinner is healthy, regional-style cuisine in the foreground.

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.

    Yes, finally found a cool blog again and gebookmarket.

  2. Johannes Zolla says:

    Health really makes you successful. I have found myself: It really helps a lot to get up earlier in the morning. Maybe not as early as the success gurus would have you believe - at 5. But when I get up at 8 in the morning, I really get more baked.

  3. Olga says:

    Really great site!

  4. Sandro Brakhage says:
