Putting the “Baden” in Wiesbaden
We arrived in Frankfurt, Germany this morning. Peter and I are attending and speaking at the Wellness Summit in Wiesbaden. “Baden” means bathing in German, so we assumed there would be natural thermal water. That assumption proved to be correct, though we were pleasantly surprised that in addition to the traditional German mineral baths for the public, our hotel – Hotel Nassauer Hof in Wiesbaden – has a beautiful new spa (Therma Spa) with a stunning, completely tiled swimming pool that is constantly replenished with fresh natural mineral water. As Peter and I soaked and swam, we realized it is actually salty. I guess there are lots of minerals in the water, making it quite special. We did the entire anti-jet-lag regime, which was directed by the very talented spa manager here, Thomas Bonk. More about that tomorrow. It reminds me once again of how different a European spa experience is from one in the U.S.
