A wellness weekend on the beautiful Fleesensee Palace just for ourselves! My husband and I have been awaiting this time out eagerly. Two and a half days just for ourselves, without the children, in a lovely wellness hotel. Just an hour and a half by car away from Berlin. This is so uncommon that we were really excited!
We love to travel with our kids. Yet to have time for just the two of us is also extremely important I think. First of all we can sleep in, furthermore we can concentrate on each other and finally we can do „grown-up“ things unhurriedly. Wonderful!
reopening of fleesensee palace
Fleesensee Palace is a gorgeous Hotel in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania lake district. It reopened in spring 2017 with a festive ceremony after being renovated! Therefore I felt like a princess in our room during our wellness weekend with a view on the palace garden and the golf course.
history of the castle
The building was constructed as the Blücher Castle in 1842 by Count Ludwig II of Blücher. It was rebuild after a fire in 1912 in the new baroque style. Therefore till today it hasn’t lost any of its royal charme! Even though the interior is absolutely up-to-date.
We were familiar with the surroundings already due to a family vacation last year with our kids. We went on bike tours and visited the so called bear forest or Müritz. There really is a lot to explore! (more on www.schlosshotel-fleesensee.com. ) After a long walk through the beautiful landscape my husband and I had booked a partner treatment at the wonderful spa. We were looking forward to a singing bowl massage. I found it very soothing! I felt the vibrations of the singing bowl inside of me after my back massage.
the gigantic spa at Fleesensee palace
After a long walk my husband and I were looking for a massage for two. The spa in general has numerous saunas and extras. And it has also a children-free area. Therefore only children older that 14 years old are allowed. Hence there is no screaming, jumping, romping! If you visit as a family, though, the fun-bath next door is perfect!
waking up like a princess
One of my highlights during our wellness weekend at Fleesensee Palace was definitely having breakfast in bed. I can’t even remember when I had enjoyed that the last time due to our kids! Therefore I relished each bite in the soft duvets. My conclusion is therefore: take some time out as a couple if you have children! And enjoy everything that you normally don’t have time for as a family.
My husband and I had truly enjoyed our wellness weekend. But we were also longing for our children when we drove back. It showed that our batteries were perfectly recharged. In conclusion I must say, though, to be just lovers again was a great impulse for our relationship!
