Built on the former military officers’ home area of the List, the construction and design of Lanserhof Sylt is under the direction of internationally renowned Düsseldorf architect Christoph Ingenhoven. Located on one of the highest elevations on the islands, guests will discover a panoramic view of the harbour of List and the adjacent landscape conservation area, against the backdrop of the Wadden Sea. A total of six buildings will be restored in close cooperation with the local monument protection authorities and honoured with the unmistakable Lanserhof design.
Lanserhof has been synonymous with vital medicine for over 30 years and its concept has made it a globally recognised medical institution which has received numerous awards in Europe. Under the medical management of Dr. Jan Stritzke, the former head of cardiology at the Asklepios North Sea Clinic Westerland, the range of services available at Lanserhof Sylt will include medical consultations and individual therapies, as well as CT and MRI scans; the only facility to offer these on the island.
