HUBERTUS Alpin Lodge & Spa


What about you? Do you like or avoid carnival? On the 4th of March 2019 is Shrove Monday and thousands of dressed up assemble in the European strongholds. But the fifth season doesn’t appeal to everybody. Some of our Green Pearls® hotels offer a perfect escape from Shrovetide – for a relaxed vacation, while the others celebrate.


Swiss chic

The impressive mountain scenery of Arosa can easily make up with carnival. Every athlete and nature lover will find the right venture. During the winter months, Arosa is perfect for any kind of winter sports, but you can also choose to enjoy the breathtaking view of the snow-covered mountains from more than 300 km hiking trails including panoramic routes on levels up to 2,900 meters. And when you are snowshoeing, you can recover at 20 mountain huts with local refreshments. And best: when you return, you are invited to get pampered with a delicious meal at the restaurant Twist at Valsana Hotel & Apartments.

Vacation to clean your cells

A relaxed alternative to the overcrowded streets on Shrove Monday is a Detox vacation. A fasting cure is ideal to get fit for spring. The Selfnesshotel SCHWARZWALD PANORAMA offers a classical fasting ingestion after Dr. Buchinger or a base fasting, a cure consisting only of regional fruit merely seasonal one and vegetables focusing on an alkaline diet to neutralize the body. Yoga lessons, meditation music as well as hikes to reach a maximum physical balance accompany both cures.


Wild forest instead of wild crowds

Who decides for a fasting diet at the SCHWARZWALD PANORAMA and wants to explore the unspoiled Black Forest while hiking, should take part in the guided hike tour “Wildes Albtal”. You follow the Alb trails for about three hours, sometimes also leaving the trails for some adventure. Off the way you learn about the history and origin of the Albtal and meet the multi-facetted scenery of the Black Forest. For more information click here.
