Between Heaven and Lake
High above lake Tegernsee, at a place between heaven and earth, the hotel of the same name invites its guests to a true well-being experience with stunning views at a unique location.
Das Tegernsee consists of five different buildings from diverse periods and in particular five different styles. The oldest part of the hotel complex and our favourite is the listed building Sengerschloss from the year 1842. The splendid art nouveau villa experienced an eventful time seeing both hardship and glamour. Following extensive refurbishment, the building has had a fresh new look for some time.
Two double rooms, eight suites and two exclusive restaurants have been renovated with loving attention to detail. Old meets new in a skillful symbiosis. An elegant fairy-tale castle with every imaginable comfort. In contrast the «Alpenchalets», newly built in 2016, are perfect for families. They are furnished
in modern alpine style with a lot of wood, while the rooms in Herberge Quirin are inspired by the former servants’ rooms with their maritime flair and their puristic design. Again going back to former times, because while the nobility resided in the Sengerschloss, the former accommodation for the servants was in Herberge Quirin. Yes, even the guests reflect the design potpourri. Everyone is welcome here.
Delightful rooms with a view
Gourmets in particular will be in their element at Das Tegernsee: Whether sampling haute cuisine in the «restaurant Senger» or innovative dishes with alpine products in the style of a modern sharing-concept in the «Alpenbrasserie» – no grounds for complaint here. The wine selection is excellent, and the very high quality culinary delicacies range from a traditional high mountain ravioli to boiled fillet of veal. Both restaurants share a breathtaking view of Lake Tegernsee and the finest cuisine; all managed by the executive chef Norman Fischer.
Feel- good sanctuary
The highlights of the hotel include the spa and wellness area on a total of 2,400 square metres. A panorama sauna for up to 40 guests with a view of the Tegernsee valley awaits you. The surrounding nature was the idea behind the spa concept, as is true for the entire building. The focus on the lake constantly plays a central role with clever use of selected materials from the area such as natural stone, limestone, driftwood, river pebbles and brushed oak. The classy recliners are from Dedon or Kettal and entice you to relax. The white-blue sky above you, sparkling Lake Tegernsee below. If the word «dreamlike setting» did not already exist, it would have to be invented for this spa.
Conclusion: Das Tegernsee is the perfect feel-good address for all those escaping the city and elevates the term relaxation to a completely new level. Hardly surprising that the nobility had their summer retreat here. Ah, life can be so sweet; especially in the Tegernsee valley…
