Where To Stay Louis Hotel (rooms from £140; louis-hotel.com). You couldn’t ask for a better location: everything worth visiting is walkable from here. The rooms are minimal but cosy, the bathrooms are beautiful and the view of Viktualienmarkt square and the gourmet food market is fantastic. Dining in the hotel restaurant, Emiko (Japanese fusion with a little taste of Bavaria), meanwhile, is fantastic. If you need relaxation, are craving nature and have more time on your hands, stay in Das Kranzbach (rooms from £195; daskranzbach.de), a beautiful spa hotel an hour from the city in a forest at the foot of the Alps. My favourite view is looking out from the sauna on to the green trees surrounded by white mountaintops. What To See The city’s museums are must-visits.

By Veronika Vermeulen on Nov 20, 2018 in New Zealand, Oceania, Regions New Zealand has been one of the world’s leading tourism destinations for several decades now; we have sold ourselves on our beauty, our 100% Pure brand, our exhilarating and world-leading adventure activities and in more recent years, our award-winning wine and food industries. We’ve mastered the art of reinvention, continually finding new and innovative ways to pull the crowds, but what’s next? It’s a question everyone in the local tourism industry is often asking themselves and I’ve also been giving it a bit of thought. Let’s consider why so many people flock to our little piece of paradise every year and that’s basically it – it’s a little piece of paradise! It feels a world away from the trouble and strife which seems to dominate global headlines; couple that with our usual USPs (Unique Selling Points) – natural wide-open, peaceful landscapes and our … [Read more...] about 5 reasons wellness is the next big tourism trend in New Zealand
