About Allgäu Sonne Kur & Sporthotel
Sitting in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, near the Swiss border, this hotel boasts uninterrupted mountain views and lots of fresh air. It has 162 guest rooms, day spa services such as massages and facials, and more specialized detoxification treatments. The spa is known in particular for its Schroth Therapy programmme (which guests aren't obliged to follow), modeled after the teachings of Austrian doctor Johann Schroth, which consists of a restrictive diet, periods of fasting, and variations of exercise. (Kur is the German word for cure.) Guests can participate in outdoor activities year-round, including skiing, in season. The region offers historical sites and approximately 300 kilometers (186 miles) of hiking trails.
