The luxury capital of Germany, the spa town of Baden-Baden, in the Black Forest, is famed for its mineral-rich thermal springs that flow from the slopes of Florentiner Berg down into the city’s Roman bathhouses. For extra exclusivity, take some well-deserved pamper time at Baden-Baden’s best spa hotels, all available to book on Culture Trip.

Sleek dark stone interiors mirror the shadowy silhouettes of the surrounding Black Forest in the Roomers Spa, boasting top-of-the-range skincare products. Treatments focus on the face, using the dermacare expertise of Dr Barbara Sturm’s Molecular Cosmetics range and nature-friendly Comfort Zone creams, gels and serums mixed with organic essential oils. Top it off with a hot stone massage, then get ready for a memorable meal on the panoramic rooftop. Salty-sweet sake teriyaki salmon and shrimp sashimi pair perfectly with a lychee lemonade at pan-Asian restaurant, Moriki.

There are all kinds of sciences involved with skincare at Maison Messmer. Its beautiful Romanesque spa offers treatments like a microneedling facial which uses hyaluronic acid to hydrate and ultrasound technology to allow anti-ageing agents to sink deeper into your skin. If all that sounds a bit much, you can always while away your stay in the heated indoor pool, overlooked by ceramic murals. The journey to total relaxation continues in the suites, some with private saunas or whirlpool tubs, and all with balcony views of the spa gardens and forested mountains beyond.

Two hours south of Baden-Baden in Wurmlingen, Hotel Traube Revital provides a countryside escape for those looking for peace and quiet. Begin the day with a bracing dip in the Kneipp wading pool, designed to stimulate circulation and strengthen the immune system, followed by a top-rated complimentary breakfast. Slip on a fuzzy bathrobe and pad down to the spa, or swim in the sunlit pavilion pool in the garden. Enormous beds and squashy armchairs await in the rooms.
