Mini getaway

My boyfriend and me made it a tradition to start the new year with a mini getaway (well, at least we did it for the second time this year, so it seems to be becoming a tradition). For the ultimate relaxing start into the new year I recommend: find a beautiful hotel in your city - it must have a spa and sauna -, book a large room (including breakfast) and a spa treatment, relax in the sauna, have dinner in the hotel restaurant, don't leave the hotel until late-checkout demands it. I guarantee you will leave with your energy levels refuelled.

This weekend we stayed in "Gastwerk Hotel", in Hamburg. The building alone, a rebuilt former factory, provides an unusual experience, and the same applies for the tasteful loft style rooms (we stayed in the junior suite). I especially liked the hotel's spa area. Three to four hours of taking a sauna, dozing and reading really do wonders. 

Are you googling design hotels in your city yet?


  1. Das Gastwerk ist wahnsinnig toll, ich war auch schon dort und denke oft daran. Jederzeit wieder :-) LG Steffi

  2. How fun is that mini getaway? I'm so jealous that you get to spend every new year with something like that. I wish more people would practice such a tradition. It's an amazing way to relax and rub off all the stress that piled up over the last year. Anyway, thanks for sharing all about that fun adventure, Anna! All the best! :)
