Therapeutic family vacations 

Vacations for the whole family in one of the most beautiful vacation areas in Germany.

The popular therapeutic family vacations in the mountains take place regularly in Ruhpolding as a possible component of our current cooperation on the basis of one of my Development Support Packages held. At any time of the year it is beautiful, peaceful, varied and relaxing here.

Dear Sibylle. The time with you has moved mountains! For the first time in years we were all able to relax and sleep properly again. I enjoyed the nature and the mountains so much, my husband the swimming in the lake. And Armin still talks about you and the ride on the little train."
