Hotel Elbresidenz at the Spa in Detail

Your Hotel

Close to the Toskana Spa, nestled between the marketplace and the Elbe river, lies the jewel of Saxon Switzerland - the imposing Hotel Elbresidenz. The building ensemble is impressive, with magnificent views over the Elbe or the Elbe Sandstone Mountains.

Location & Surroundings

The Saxon Switzerland National Park offers a true treasure trove of interesting destinations, natural beauties, and breathtaking views. The picturesque town of Bad Schandau, surrounded by the scenic backdrop of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains, is located right at the entrance to the Kirnitzsch Valley. The valley can be explored with the historic tram, but it is also ideal for hiking, for example, to the Kuhstall, an eleven-meter-high rock gate that can be climbed via the narrow "Heaven's Ladder" to experience the view over the region. Among the most impressive rock formations are the Bastei and the Schrammsteine.

Dining & Leisure

Enjoy a breakfast buffet in the elegant salons of the Sandstone Restaurant. The Elbe Terrace Restaurant, with its summer garden, boasts high-quality interiors and meticulous attention to detail, complemented by its breathtaking view of the Elbe River. The half board option features regional products and international compositions, available from the buffet or served directly to your table. Options include vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free, and gluten-free dishes. The Rio Xingu Bar is the perfect place to unwind in the evening.

Refined Fasting

Life Balance - Rejuvenation for Body and Soul
Feeling increasingly drained, tired, and powerless in your daily life? Rediscover life's balance and allow your body to maintain health and heal! This 12-day fasting programme is based on a modified version of the protein-sparing modified fast by Otto Buchinger and Hellmuth Lützner, incorporating proven elements from other fasting strategies such as whey fasting and alkaline fasting, supported with fine teas, balanced juices, and special supplements.
Your fasting journey is led by an experienced nutritionist and specialist in internal medicine, gastroenterology, and diabetology. Fasting is professionally complemented with physical activity, relaxation therapies, and physiotherapeutic treatments. Combined with the five pillars of Kneipp medicine, including swimming, dance, and culture, you will experience a holistic and diverse programme.

The 5 Pillars of Health Philosophy, central to Kneipp medicine, also play a crucial role in refined fasting:
Water: Swimming and water activities, sauna, baths, and affusions, Aqua-FlowDance, and sauna yoga in groups offer deceleration.
Movement: Movement and relaxation techniques, fasting walks, physical and mental agility reduce stress and prevent diseases.
Medicinal plants: Theoretical impulses for home and special spices and herbs as part of the fasting diet aim to detoxify the body.
Order of life: Recently, concepts such as mindfulness, healthy sleep, and self-care have gained significant importance.
Nutrition: Comprehensive catering within the fasting diet with a special focus on supplements like spices, fermented preparations, valuable vegetables, juices, teas, and herbs, acting as powerful catalysts to enrich the fasting experience.

Refined fasting is especially recommended for overweight, metabolic disorders, high blood pressure, fatty liver, and diabetes (metabolic vascular syndrome). It is also beneficial for physical and psychological imbalances, stress, impending burnout, post and long-Covid symptoms, rheumatic diseases, chronic pain, migraines, and gastrointestinal disorders such as colitis or irritable bowel syndrome. Or simply for recharging your "batteries" and strengthening the immune system.
