Milk and whey bath: authentic pampering programme
In the Allgäu, you will increasingly find wellness treatments with an authentic touch. For what could fit better into a region that has been shaped by pasture farming for centuries than milk and whey?
The products used are typical for the Allgäu and are even produced there: “cream and yoghurt bath, goat’s butter and cream compress, mountain herbs and whey bath …” – the spa brochure of the Lindner Parkhotel & Spa in Oberstaufen makes you want more. A wellness package awaits you here that guarantees time out from your everyday life and complete relaxation.
Whey against aching muscles
Clean mountain air, the imposing backdrop of the Alps, luscious green, fragrant meadows filled with mountain herbs and sparkling mountain lakes – the Allgäu invites you to discover its nature. Sabrina Rebbe, Spa Manager of the Parkhotel, recommends: “A beneficial whey bath is perfect after a long walk or a strenuous hike.”
The expert in wellness also enriches the water with rose, lavender or thyme oil. Thus, it can either have a relaxing or a stimulating effect.

Newer studies indicate that whey protein stimulates the immune system and acts as a shield against free radicals. The low-fat whey owes its triumphant advance to this health-promoting property. The ingredients of the product are particularly suitable for sensitive types of skin – for example after sunburn of if you are suffering from neurodermitis, eczema or psoriasis.
Massage, whey bath and sauna: wellness for all your senses
In the spa bath at the Parkhotel in Oberstaufen, massage jets ensure that the whey reveals its full power. In the process, your legs, your back and your neck will be pleasantly stimulated. “A bath in whey has a lot of modes of action,” says Rebbe. “It has a detoxifying and purging effect, and is also lipid-replenishing and anti-inflammatory.”
In the massage bath, you will soon feel its rejuvenating effect. During the bath, your skill is optimally supplied with moisture and instantly feels noticeably softer. It smells pleasantly of essential oils and a bit of baby cream. The changing colours of the lights under the water make the bath into a sensual experience. The special spa bath has the advantage that the jets are used in a targeted manner. “If a guest has a problem with varicose veins, we will simply turn off the massage function on the legs,” explains Rebbe.
You will ideally prepare for the whey bath with a massage and an exfoliation, for example using an exfoliant made from honey and mountain salt. Before you go into the sauna, relax for half an hour. This allows the valuable contents of the whey to unfold its full effect.
To round it off, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the peaks surrounding Oberstaufen – wrapped up in a snug, warm blanket and completely relaxed.
