The Lanserhof Resorts are the leading health resorts worldwide. For over 35 years, they have stood for innovative medicine as well as prevention and health regeneration. The Lanserhof Concept is the result of years of research and development. It is a symbiosis of traditional naturopathy and the latest medical findings. This combination helps guests to regenerate physically, mentally and spiritually and get rid of unnecessary ballast.
The nucleus of this success story is the parent company in Lans near Innsbruck, established in 1984.
Kommerzialrat Anton Pletzer and Christian Harisch joined the organisation in 1998. A This was a milestone for Lanserhof.
Stefan Rutter joined as a partner in 2009. It is thanks to him that extensive investments could be implemented. Guests are at the centre of our approach- according to this principle, the entire hotel in Lans has been modernised. This includes the construction of the new bathhouse, where great importance was attached to integration into the surrounding Alpine panorama, and more recently the new Cellgym room and the futuristic-looking new Kneipp corner.
In 2012, we opened our first branch office in in the historic building of the old Oberpostdirektion in in the heart of Hamburg, Germany. The location is headed by orthopaedic and trauma surgeon PD Dr. Philip Catalá-Lehnen. Catalá-Lehnen became known in the Hanseatic city, through his founding of the UKE Athleticum and his work as the HSV team doctor. Under his leadership, the LANS Medicum has established itself as the leading facility for sports medicine in northern Germany. His patients include professional athletes from the Hamburg Towers, the handball players from HSV Hamburg and world-famous boxing stars. The annual sports symposium organised by the LANS Medicum now attracts over 250 doctors and sports therapists to the Hanseatic city.
Another location, the Lanserhof Tegernsee, was established in 2014. This was designed by the award-winning architect Christoph Ingenhoven and landscape architect Enzo Enea. Surrounded by the Bavarian foothills of the Alps, guests will find a place of tranquility, regeneration and revitalisation. Under the leadership of Dr Benedetto-Reisch as medical director, the success of our concept has now been confirmed by 5 awards in a row as the World’s Best Medical Spa.
At the end of 2018, Dr. Katharina Sandtner took over as medical director of the Lanserhof Lans.
Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Kuck’s high-performance cardiology centre, trading as LANS Cardio, consists of a team of four experienced doctors and is the only centre in Hamburg to offer private, outpatient cardiological rehab. Patients from all over the world come to the Hanseatic city to be treated by these renowned heart specialists.
In July 2019, Lanserhof at The Arts Club opened in Mayfair’s Dover Street, in central London. We partnered with London’s legendary private members’ club, The Arts Club, to open a state-of-the-art, world-class health club. Experts in the fields of general and preventive medicine, orthopaedics, cardiology, radio and sonology as well as sports medicine welcome guests and members there. In addition, members can use the private fully-equipped fitness studio, and can choose from a wide range of fitness courses led by highly-qualified trainers.
The opening of Lanserhof Sylt is planned for early 2022. In addition to the naturopathic approach, the focus here will be on cardiological rehabilitation for acute and chronic diseases. Here, guests will experience our classic check-ups and individual therapies, as well as diagnostics using MRI and CT. Dr. Jan Stritzke, former head physician of cardiology at the Nordseeklinik Westerland and currently deputy medical director at Lanserhof Tegernsee, will take over as medical director of Lanserhof Sylt.
