You can enjoy culinary delights in the Allgäu region of Bavaria and Oberstaufen, or you can deliberately choose to participate in a Schroth cure. Since 1949 this fasting method is practised in Oberstaufen, initially invented by Mister Johann Schroth. Of course, many hotels offer the curative fasting Schrothkur in several days packages. A nice walk outside of Oberstaufen, in the small village ‘Zell‘, you can find Ferienhof Geissler. It’s situated right next to a historic chapel in the oldest location in the Allgäu, which was first mentioned in the 900th century. But, I do like and enjoy culinary and did not choose porridge soup. For the other minority, we could choose between typical bavarian Weisswurst sausages or baked Camembert; I wanted the vegetarian dish. Crispy baked camembert rounds with lots of cranberry jam, toast and some side salad. Together with a drink that is iconic for Bavaria, a Spezi (equally mixed Cola and orange lemonade), this was a very delicious and satisfying Lunch.
In case you are interested, the Schroth cure is based on four pillars: a proper diet (you only consume max 620 calories a day and no animal fats, protein and salt), strict rules on what and how much to drink, full-body wraps in the early morning as well as a right balance of rest and movement. All to detoxify and purify your body. You can find more information in this brochure by Oberstaufen Tourism or on the website of the Hotel as linked below.
