A day in our clinic

A day at Buchinger Wilhelmi is a day of activity and relaxation, discoveries, pleasure and the chance to meet new people. It is a day that belongs to you alone.

Evening

Guests who are fasting end the day with a vegetable consommé, while non-fasters can look forward to another culinary highlight in the restaurant from our organic gourmet cuisine.

A varied cultural programme with concerts, lectures and films rounds off the evening.

Morning

At your morning health check, a trained nurse will measure your blood pressure, pulse, weight and blood sugar levels in consultation with your doctor.
After that, a cup of tea will be served to your room.

Before and after your fast and if you have booked our nutrition programme, you can enjoy breakfast in our restaurant.

To give your circulation a gentle boost, you can choose from a wide range of activities such as a walk, gymnastics, yoga and Pilates as well as courses on relaxation techniques and meditation.

Midday

During your fast, you can choose between a freshly squeezed fruit juice or a vegetable consommé at midday.

If you have booked our nutrition programme, you will be served a delicious vegetarian menu in the restaurant from our organic gourmet cuisine.

Midday rest

After your midday refreshment, you have time to relax and rest. The nurse will give you a warm liver pack to stimulate your metabolism. Let your thoughts drift and enjoy the feeling of blissful relaxation.

Afternoon

The afternoon is yours to do what you want: Take part in a guided walking tour or an excursion, do some fitness training, try your hand at art in our studio, gain inspiration for when you go back home in our cooking lessons, or book a treatment from the wide range on offer.

Alternatively, you can simply do nothing and enjoy your free time.
