Insel Hambroich, Neuss, Germany
The first time i visited the Museum Island “Hambroich” in Neuss/Germany i was still a child and already enchanted by the idyllic landscapes, where the architecture and art is interspersed. Until today it fascinates me how nature and art create a synergy, if you allow it (for that atmosphere the doors must be open so that the light is allowed to enter the rooms – unthinkable in many classical museums). On display are, among others, works by Lovis Corinth, Hans Arp, Henri Matisse, Rembrandt. A visit is really a day for the senses and also great for children because they experience art and do not only look at it. http://www.inselhombroich.de/museum-insel-hombroich/museum/
Haus am Meer, Scharbeutz, Germany
This small charming hotel is one of my three favorite places and located directly in Haffkrug in Scharbeutz on the Baltic Sea. It is run very personal and lovingly by the young family Vogler. The rooms are decorated in a modern way with attention to detail. I especially love the cozy book-café where you can get delicious waffles. Haus am Meer is located directly at the beach – you just cross a small street. The best rooms are those from where you have the most amazing view to the Baltic Sea. Absolutely stunning! Haus am Meer also offers seminars and workshops, like Yoga retreats. http://www.haus-am-meer-scharbeutz.de/startseite.html
Forsthaus Heiligenberg, Germany
My personal oasis for small escapes from the daily routines: the “Forsthaus Heiligenberg”, located about 30 minutes from Bremen/North of Germany. I often go there to plan new projects and to have time just for myself (which is luxury with two children at home). Here awaits you a surprisingly hilly nature, a beautifully landscaped cottage garden with hidden cozy seating areas, a classic-styled restaurant serving regional food, and especially gorgeous comfortable and very neat rooms. So to speak, a feel-good package. http://www.forsthaus-heiligenberg.de/index.html
