Lanserhof, Europe’s leader in innovative health, opened the group’s first resort by the sea in summer 2022. Sylt, also known as the ‘Hamptons of Germany’, has long been treasured for its famous healing climate and restorative sea air, which can provide significant relief for allergy and respiratory disease sufferers.

A €120 million project over five years in the making, Lanserhof Sylt offers the brand’s signature approach, which combines cuttingedge diagnostics with natural healing methods. The Sylt programme is overseen by Medical Director and Cardiologist Dr. Jan Stritzke, a specialist in cardiological rehabilitation for acute and chronic illnesses.Housing 68 rooms and suites beneath Europe’s largest thatched roof, the resort has a combined guest area of over 20,000m2. In addition to the main building, the resort features interconnected saltwater indoor -outdoor pool and a five-story freestanding spiral staircase centrepiece. A continuous glass facade, the largest on Sylt, gives the impression that the thatched roof floats above, giving the property a weightless character that blends seamlessly into the rolling dunes and landscape beyond.The guest rooms range upwards in size from 39m2 double rooms, and all feature their very own private balcony cut into the thatched roof of the building. These balconies are the first of their kind, creating an abundance of light within the room while providing a tranquil spot for guests to enjoy the healing sea air amidst panoramic views of the sea and sand dunes ahead. Selected rooms feature beds with innovative FreshBed technology to ensure the perfect night’s sleep, in addition to a unique, human-centric lighting concept to keep guests in harmony with the natural biorhythm.Designed by internationally renowned architect Christoph Ingenhoven, Lanserhof Sylt has been constructed using entirely sustainable, non-emitting materials. The design finds inspiration from the surrounding area and climate, as well as in the construction of Frisian houses, which typically feature low storeys, glass, wood and thatch. Natural, curved shapes mirror the island’s sand dunes, while a pared-back aesthetic featuring wood, earthen tones and organic materials allows the magnificent setting to take centre-stage.

The timeless, unique nature of Sylt in combination with the new, modern Lanserhof property with its flowing, corner-less architecture has a health-promoting effect on body, mind and soul, just like the traditional naturopathy and state-of-the-art cutting-edge medicine contained in the Lanserhof Concept.Under the medical management of Dr. Jan Stritzke, the range of services available at Lanserhof Sylt include medical consultations and individual therapies.Dr Jan Stritzke said: “At Lanserhof Sylt, the magic of a new beginning can not only be felt but experienced. Surrounded by the unique and ever-present nature of Sylt, the new health resort awaits guests in a place where modern, flowing and natural architecture radiates tranquillity and at the same time combines modern cutting-edge medicine with the help of state-of-the-art equipment and alternative naturopathy. The natural and traditional combined with the new and modern are thus reflected in both the architecture of the resort and at the same time in the medical concept. This is something very unique. For this new Lanserhof experience we have built a great team of physicians, therapists, sports and nutrition scientists and beauticians. I can’t wait to introduce it to our guests.”The German Island of Sylt is located Northwest of the mainland and is reachable by air via Düsseldorf (the airport is closed during the winter months). From March to November there are direct flights from Düsseldorf, Munich, Zurich, Hamburg and Frankfurt. Otherwise, it is possible to travel by train, ferry or car (car train or ferry) all year round. With just 15,000 inhabitants, Sylt offers 40 kilometres of fine sandy beach and three shifting sand dunes, the only ones left in all of Germany. Set on UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Wadden Sea, Sylt is home to some of the continent’s most astonishing wildlife and flora and fauna; whale watching is possible during the summer months while harbour porpoises can be spotted off the coast year-round.

Rates at Lanserhof Sylt start from 6,400 euros for a 7-night Lanserhof Cure Classic (prices subject to change) . The basic medical package costs from €2,899 per week, plus room.
