Even Pearls need to take a break every once in a while! ;-)
As you know, our main focus is our career and we spend long hours at the office or at the library prepping for our exams. So it´s really important to take some time off to fuel up every now and then, even if it´s just for only 48 hours. And what better way is there to recharge your inner batteries than a girlstrip to the wonderful Austrian Alps?!
Since it is only a 1,5 hours drive away from Munich, Kitzbühel is the perfect destination for a short getaway. Our extra-tip is to leave in the evening, after work, to avoid to be stuck in traffic and loose precious time. Once we got there, Viktoria and I decided to take the first evening slow and just enjoy a cup of tea and a few laughs on the couch. The next morning we savoured a healthy breakfast with a gorgeous view of the mountains from our balcony. After a long and relaxing walk alongside the Schwarzsee (which looks even more beautiful in winter when it´s covered in snow), we headed to our favourite spot: the famous Rosi´s Sonnbergstuben. Here you can enjoy delicious Tirolean dishes with the most stunning view you could ask for! Our tip: share a Jausenbrett´l and then finish with the best Kaiserschmarrn in the world as dessert. Book in advance and ask them for table numer 65: it´s the one with the best vista ;-)
And since it´s a girls´weekend, of course there has to be some time for shopping as well ;-) So take a stroll along the cute and colourful streets of Kitz and do a bit of window-(or actual) shopping at Moncler, Louis Vuitton and the lovely little boutique KitzGlück.
End the day right with a yummy dinner at the restaurant Pfandl and win (or loose :P) some cash at the Casino. Of course we lost all our money, but who cares when you´re having such a fun time with your bestfriend?! J
To really recharge before going back home, spend your last day at the spa. Our favourites are the A-Rosa Resorts & Hideaways, the Kempinski and the Biohotel Stanglwirt (here you will have to book a room to have access to the spa though).
This time around we chose the most typical A-Rosa and had the best time swimming in the heated outdoor pool, chilling on the comfortable beds and trying out the two different steam rooms and 5 (!) different saunas. Once you are done, you will feel like a completely new person!
So when you feel like you can´t deal with the everyday struggle anymore, just grab your bestie and enjoy a couple of days away from all the madness. It´ll help you to come back stronger and more productive than ever!!
Lots of Love,
