There is so much to discover at Siebenquell® GesundZeitResort with its unique spa facilities, wide range of fitness and spa treatment options, and various restaurants. But its surroundings with the picturesque Lake Weißenstadt and the vast Fichtel Mountains natural park also have a lot to offer, including many exciting excursions to enjoy. Active holiday-goers come to make the most of these surroundings the whole year round. The town of Weißenstadt is also worth a visit with its romantic rows of houses and charming narrow streets.
Hikes to the local mountains
The three local mountains – Waldstein, Rudolfstein and Schneeberg – are a good walk from the resort. You’ll need to allow approximately 3 hours for a hike (there and back) to Waldstein and Rudolfstein, and around 5 hours to the Schneeberg. The Fichtel Mountains are at their best on the mostly deserted paths, where hikers can enjoy the unadulterated nature in peace and quiet.
Stand up paddle boarding
Lake Weißenstadt is a popular location for spa guests and water sports enthusiasts, especially in the summer. Stand up paddle boarding is enjoying increasing popularity. The sport involves standing on a kind of surfboard and relaxing as you paddle over the water. It’s a great way to discover the lake from a completely different perspective, and a fun way to get out and exercise.
Electric bike tours with refreshment break
The area around the resort is ideal for extended electric bike tours. A good point to start and end is the Fichtelrad café in Weißenstadt, which also offers guided tours into the forests of the Fichtel Mountains. When you finish, you can head back to the café to reward yourself with a snack in its traditional beer garden.
You can rent high-quality electric bikes from Siebenquell®.
Activities on the Ochsenkopf
The bottom cable car station for the Ochsenkopf is around 8 kilometres from the resort. The second highest peak of the Fichtel Mountains will lure you in with a network of hiking trails with a total length of 500 kilometres, a year-round toboggan run, Germany's first zipline park, a high ropes course and over two kilometres of single-track courses for mountain bikers.
Events in Weißenstadt
The Weißenstadt Easter market always takes place on the Sunday two weeks before Easter around the ruins of the spa gardens on the lake. In this wonderful setting, you’ll find all kinds of interesting delights, from decorative crafts to delicious home-made treats.
