SCHLOSS Fleesensee has 179 rooms and suites – from spacious standard rooms to the tower suites with separate living and sleeping space, all of which allow guests to fully relax. Of course, the location also plays an important role: SCHLOSS Fleesensee lies in the centre of the Mecklenburg Lake District, a favourite German holiday destination with breathtaking natural landscapes, but only 90 minutes from Berlin and two hours from Hamburg. People searching for a quiet holiday in the middle of untouched nature are at the right place, as are active holidaymakers who like exploring the lakes by bike or canoe. Directly next to the hotel, lies one of Europe’s largest golf resorts: the SCHLOSS course counts among the most scenic golf courses in Germany. 60 | Issue 79 | October 2019
“At the end of the day, guests can then treat themselves with culinary delights,” says hotel manager Harald Schmitt. “We deliver healthy and sustainably farmed produce from our own farm, following the motto: know where it comes from.” Blüchers gourmet restaurant at SCHLOSS Fleesensee offers top-class cuisine with vegetables and fruits from the hotel’s own garden, fresh eggs and beef from its herd of Angus cattle. The recipes combine tradition with the sophistication of modern haute cuisine. The location is pretty special, as well: the restaurant lies in the former castle chapel with neighbouring terrace. Besides the culinary experience, SCHLOSS Fleesensee also convinces
guests with an innovative spa concept, and the SCHLOSS Spa has won various awards for its design and holistic approach. “For optimum relaxation and sustainable regeneration we have developed a ‘WellActiveTour’ – a symbiosis of wellness, activity and recreation,” says Harald Schmitt. The tour guides visitors through the hotel spa and helps everyone to use it in the most efficient way in just 90 minutes. Next to the heated pool, the outdoor area offers a 60-degree bio-sauna with stunning views over the castle gardens, and a 90-degree Finnish sauna. Infusions with different smells and inspiring lighting create a very relaxing environment in the crystal sauna, found in the indoor area. Among the highlights are a microsalt room and an oxygen sauna: The latter not only gives energy, vitality and up to 25 per cent better sports performance, it also helps with respiratory and skin problems.
