Whilst I lived in Germany with my husband for two years, I learnt a great many things. I can now drink a whole stein of beer and hold my own, I can make a mean schnitzel, I can drive fast without the fear of god running through me, and I also learnt to love a spa. Interestingly, for a woman, I always found spas a bit 'and what next?'. I think I found it hard to realise that the whole point of going was not activity, but just indulging in doing absolutely nothing. Apologies if I'm telling you how to skin a cat here, but the point of spas genuinely passed me by up until I moved to the North Rhine Westphalia area.
Now I'm back in the UK, I try to indulge them as much as I can. However, here, whilst you may not come face to face with German sausage everywhere you look, you do tend to have to pay a lot more for them. They've therefore become to me, now, a once in a while treat that is much welcomed. Because of that, I don't mind travelling that little bit further to go to one and as such I've listed some below that are dotted mainly in the South, near abouts the M4. Here are my favourites:
