The new Lanserhof Tegernsee — the most modern prevention and regeneration center in Europe — in Marienstein at Lake Tegern, a large lake in the Bavarian Alps, was opened in January 2014. Following in the footsteps of Lanserhof in Tirol, Austria, and Lans Medicum in Hamburg, Germany, the Lanserhof Tegernsee holistic health resort is setting new standards in combining health, enjoyment, and hospitality.

Spread across 68,900 square feet, the new center for health provides an extraordinary amount of space for guests. The heart of Lanserhof Tegernsee is a large, 22,970-square-foot treatment area providing a broad spectrum of diagnostic, therapeutic, and cosmetic programs, all based on the successful LANS Med Concept. The 70 exclusive rooms and suites are a refuge of relaxation for the guests.

They are all spaciously designed for privacy. The design of the whole resort by Ingenhoven Architects is refined and timeless, with elegant shapes and soft colors. Lots of warm colors, greige, and some white in the medical rooms and natural materials help to underline the approach of Lanserhof Tegernsee: to be healthy and stay healthy.

The design focuses on the essentials to create a space for rejuvenation and regeneration. The Lanserhof hotel is 260 by 260 feet and follows the classic floor plan of a courtyard-building layout with a patio and a basic cloister. The courtyard façades of the room floors, just like the roof, are planted.

The internal courtyard plays a significant role in the overall design. The inward-oriented hotel blends with the landscape and is a retreat for relaxation, recuperation, and reenergizing. The heart of the new resort is the lavishly designed medical area with treatment, consultation, and exercise rooms equipped and furnished to the most modern standards.

In addition, the newly designed bathhouse with sauna area, outdoor pool, exercise and yoga room, as well as the secluded inner garden, are all areas of tranquility and relaxation. Beside the medical treatment area is a fireside lounge, library, restaurant, and meeting rooms; VIP rooms complete the concept of an exclusive hotel.

The design of every room and suite — the smallest is 160 square feet — was designed with the latest health knowledge in mind; thus, the hotel will set new standards in both ecological and biological aspects and provide optimal living conditions. Generous loggias with a panoramic view of the mountains and lake, natural light, and appealing interior lighting provide the guest with the ideal ambience for privacy.

The large rooftop terrace provides an exclusive view of the natural surroundings. The resort is completed by a hotel and golf course, which complement the multifaceted activities in one of Europe’s most highly valued tourist regions. Ingenhoven Architects is responsible for the architectural and interior design of the project and landscape.
