Just south of the western tip of Lake Constance, in the picturesque farming village of Hüttwilen, is Steinegg Castle, a newly-renovated, 45-room hotel known for holistic health and fasting regimens. Fitness room with light equipment, polar pulse measuring devices, cross-country bikes, ergometer bikes, table tennis, library and use of Hüttwil lake beach are among the facilities offered by the Steinegg. In addition, there are tennis courts and an indoor pool in nearby Herderen, riding stables In Frauenfeld and golf courses at Erlen and Niederbüren.

On a vacation such as this, it is probably unwise to venture where temptations such as cold beer, pommes frites and sizzling, greasy sausages await. Those with unbreakable wills, however, should be aware that boat rides on the Bodensee and along the Rhine are nearby as are the towns of St. Gallen, Appenzell of cheese-making fame, and, of course, Zürich. Consult your own physician before undertaking a regimen such as this.
