Fitness & Yoga

Holidays are a time for well-being

You don’t have to do without your workout, even on holiday. The perfect wellness program also includes sport beforehand. Whether you choose to workout in the fresh air or in the perfectly equipped fitness rooms, at Hotel EDELWEISS you have unlimited possibilities. Two modern equipped fitness rooms are available for strength and endurance training. The light-flooded rooms and a pleasant atmosphere provide perfect training conditions. You don’t have to do without the Mountain View here either.

Regular fitness classes complement the offer: Aqua-Gym keeps the body fit through gentle training in the warm water of the panoramic indoor-pool. During a round of guided Nordic walking, the nature of Berchtesgaden can be explored and enjoyed at the same time as the sportive activity.

Opening hours fitness:
open daily from 7:00 am until 10:00 pm.

Yoga & relaxation

A sun salutation at the sunniest point of the EDELWEISS

Enjoy a morning session of Yoga out in the open on our beautiful roof terrace. Let alone the view of our Berchtesgaden Alps and the tremendous Watzmann give you strength for the day. Or you might just want to relax and stretch your muscles and body after a day in the mountains – we have just the perfect yoga room for you overlooking the rooftops of Berchtesgaden. Early Birds can benefit from exercise and relaxation on a yoga hike in the morning.

As a welcomed guest in our yoga hotel, you have the choice: Join Yoga classes spontaneously or schedule individual classes with our trained yoga teacher (at an extra charge, by arrangement).

Morning yoga
With simple yoga poses we welcome the day and get our body and mind going. The freshness of the morning air helps us to start energetic into the day. 

Morning yoga with a short hike
In the morning before breakfast we hike up to a small hill and welcome the day with simple yoga poses and breathing exercises.  

Stretch yoga
For more flexibility in everyday life. This type of yoga is designed to stretch the muscles.

Sound yoga
The sound bowls support the stretching with their tones and vibrations and help to intensify the relaxation. Each participant receives a soundbowl and plays it him/herself. The vibrations of the sound bowl support the stretching and create a pleasant feeling for all senses.

Yoga trainer Silke Schimpl

"I love Hatha yoga very much as everyone can find something for themselves within these sessions - no matter if beginner or professional at an age. For me as a yoga teacher it is the art to design and organise the classes in such a way that it is coherent and right for everyone. Conscious breathing, conscious relaxing, conscious asanas, conscious cool downs."

Yoga trainer Nina Schlesener

Nina is born and raised in Berchtesgaden. She is one of only seven German mountain guides and was even the first and youngest mountain guide in Germany in 2011. Besides the mountains, yoga is her passion. Yoga provides a balance to the alpine challenges.

The energising yoga sessions are suitable for all levels. Experience is lovely to have, but of course not a must.
Depending on the actual activity programme, sessions take place up to four times a week with asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation and sound yoga for the right vibration within the body.

The courses will take place regardless of the number of participants and are free of charge for our guests. Depending on the weather situation, you are welcome to experience your very own individual yoga hour outdoors or indoors. And of course – guided with our in-house trainers.

The times for the activities on offer can be found on the notice board right at the hotel reception and of course at the spa reception.
