Our Spotters do enjoy a good treat to recharge their batteries – and pay a visit to the spa or sauna in their neighborhood. The wellness places our spotters found come in a variety of shapes, from a swimming cabin on a river in Prague to an open air hot whirlpool along the shore of Lake Zurich to antique spas in Budapest.

We made a selection of our Spotters’ most favorite wellness spots:

1. Liquidrom – Berlin
