Beautiful even before the refurbishment, the hotel was recently renovated from the ground up and now shines even brighter. Nature and the energy of the surrounding Bavarian Alps have been carefully integrated in every aspect of the elegant architecture in this five-star superior hotel. The large picture windows create a sense of openness and offer beautiful views of the immaculately maintained park; timber from native trees and materials found in the Alpine region create a homely yet deluxe ambiance. State- of-the-art technology enables the hotel to keep its ecological footprint to a minimum – meaning that guests staying here can do so with a clean green conscience. There is a choice of 108 bedrooms and suites in a variety of categories, providing the perfect personal retreat. The Mangfall Spa offers relaxation for all the senses; the 1,500-square-meter wellness refuge has five different saunas, three relaxation rooms and an ice lounge. The pool flows harmoniously from indoors to the outside, allowing guests to swim out into the beautiful, extensive private park. A menu of soothing treatments offers short-cuts on the path to blissful relaxation; the hotel spa uses deluxe products by the French brand Sisley and German brand Doctor Duve. And because wellbeing is closely linked to great food, Parkhotel Egerner Höfe has a special treat for foodies: in the gourmet restaurant Dichter, star chef Thomas Kellermann and his team serve outstanding menus with a special twist using seasonal products from the region around the Tegernsee valley.
