Brenners Park-Hotel and Spa
Baden-Baden is Germany’s most renowned wellness city, and this hotel is an urban oasis set in a private park.

Perhaps some of these overworked leaders enjoyed a treatment at the medical spa that boasts a team of German doctors, who oversee everything from preventive check-ups to nutrition coaching. There are also two beauty spas specializing in Asian and South Pacific therapies.
