Babymoon - the "honeymoon" of pregnancy

The best time to travel during pregnancy is the second trimester, from the 13th week of pregnancy. The famous pregnancy discomforts subside, but the baby bump is also not yet as burdensome as it usually is at the end of pregnancy. Many couples use this time for a holiday. Togetherness, rest and relaxation. This holiday time is anticipation and enjoyment at the same time.
We are here for you at our hotel. Most of the guests at our 4-star hotel in Oberhof are couples and there is a pleasantly quiet atmosphere in the hotel. Just the right thing during pregnancy. The meals we offer are also tailored to your needs during pregnancy.

Tips for holidays during pregnancy

The first weeks of pregnancy are not only a great adventure for the future parents. The expectant mother usually also struggles with the less pleasant side effects of pregnancy. Nausea, circulatory problems, mood swings are on the agenda for many women. The hormonal changes and, in addition to all the anticipation, many uncertainties and fears often occupy pregnant women in the first trimester of pregnancy. Around the end of the first trimester in the 12th week of pregnancy, however, these complaints usually subside.

Now the "best" part of pregnancy begins and your ideal travel time.

If you are planning your trip during pregnancy, you should plan with short travel distances. Oberhof is an ideal destination for your babymoon. You can reach the small town on the ridge of the Thuringian Forest very easily from all directions in Germany. In the middle of the green heart of Germany, Oberhof is close to the A71 motorway and also not far from the A4 motorway. 

Here's what you should look out for on holiday during pregnancy

  • Even on holiday, make sure you eat a balanced diet with lots of variations and fresh fruit and vegetables.
  • Avoid raw products such as salami, raw or smoked fish and raw milk cheese.
  • Drink enough, preferably water, tea or diluted fruit juices.
  • You don't have to give up sauna sessions, but you should not go into the sauna for too long and pay attention to your circulation.
  • Prefer shorter sauna sessions during pregnancy. If you do not normally go to the sauna, you should wait until after your pregnancy.
  • So-called swimming tampons are recommended in swimming pools so that you can protect yourself and your unborn child from germs.
  • You should generally avoid whirlpools, where the germ load is often higher due to the high water temperatures.
  • Massages are allowed, but not all herbs and creams. Some additives can promote premature labour. We recommend that you inform the masseuse about your pregnancy in advance.
  • Exercise in the fresh mountain air in Oberhof is certainly good for you and your child. However, you should not undertake excessively large tours and also make sure you have enough food and drinks for the journey.

Active or wellness during pregnancy

Of course, both are possible: an active holiday and a wellness holiday during pregnancy. Around Oberhof there are numerous excursion destinations for cultural and active discovery tours. Extensive hikes or short round tours start directly at our hotel. You can also choose the level of difficulty of your hike, from easy to challenging. Depending on your condition and desire. A cosy picnic in the Rennsteig Garden (in summer) or a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Thuringian Forest will round off your holiday. In any case, we recommend that you do not travel alone during pregnancy. Romantically with your partner or simply with your best friend. You should have a companion with you in case you do need support.
