Relaxing mini breaks - close to home

What does true relaxation mean to you? Simply freeing your mind and letting your thoughts wander? Just getting away from it all and taking a break? Researchers into stress have found that it’s not the length of a holiday that’s important. Even short breaks and weekend trips will bring you lasting relaxation. We have selected a few examples of relaxing holidays where you can earn miles.

The more mini breaks you take, the more relaxed you’ll feel – especially if you learn something new or do something you’ve always wanted to do on holiday, like experience something special, go on a boat ride or climb a mountain.

Sightseeing by boat

A tour along the canals in the heart of Leipzig is just one of many unforgettable experiences you can enjoy with GetYourGuide. Explore the city’s industrial heritage, and learn more about its history. The tour begins at Leipzig’s picturesque city harbour, passing the historic and modern attractions along the waterside. Enjoy a brief moment of tranquillity on your 70-minute boat tour through Leipzig’s waterways, and return to the harbour with some fantastic memories and impressions. Then round off your experience at one of the local bars.

City, country and nature

Take advantage of this offer from Tchibo to stay at The Westin Leipzig. This first-class modern hotel is situated in the heart of the city centre and affords an amazing view of the city. Discover the city’s history and hear all its stories on a guided tour.

If being closer to nature is more your thing, stay in a Canadian log cabin in Sigmarszell in the Allgäu, just a few kilometres from Lake Constance, with FeWo-direkt. The 35 m² cabin offers comfortable accommodation for two adults. Look forward to an unspoilt view across the lush green meadows. Close by is the beautiful town of Lindau, whose island (20 minutes away) is steeped in rich cultural heritage. Beautiful farm shops in the vicinity offer the opportunity to shop for groceries. You’ll also find plenty to cater to your well-being, such as the option of hiring a wood-heated barrel sauna for a few days. This is a great idea, especially during the colder months.

Visit a vineyard

You’ll find a wide variety of mini breaks at Jochen Schweizer. Indulge in a two-day taste sensation in Rheinhessen. Germany’s largest wine-growing region offers a huge selection of fine, quality wines. Immerse yourself in the world of wine on a historic vineyard in Ockenheim. Enjoy a tasty evening feast before sampling around ten different wines while learning fascinating facts from the winemaker. An overnight stay in the holiday home owned by the Feser family of winemakers will save you having to travel home and allow you to enjoy a wander through the vineyards the following day.
