You know what? I sometimes really miss the proximity to the mountains. From Berlin it’s simply not possible to get in the car or on the train and to be in the mountains within an hour. Professionally, there was a lot going on in the last autumn months, so I deliberately wanted to take a longer break at the beginning of December (a life update is now overdue). A spontaneous Girls’ Spa trip with one of my best friends from Munich in DAS TEGERNSEE was very convenient.
The Tegernsee is one of my favorite lakes in the Munich area. For a long time I wanted to spend a few relaxing days there without having to return to Munich in the evening. Said and done.
- The last time I was actually last year with Amandine at Tegernsee. Time flies!
DAS TEGERNSEE #betweenHeavenAndEarth
DAS TEGERNSEE probably has the best south-facing location which offers a fantastic view of the lake. After a long drive from Berlin we wanted to get some fresh air before dinner and visited the local Christmas market, which was really cute.
Christmas at Tegernsee
- Tip for pre-Christmas time: the “Tegernseer Adventszauber” (Tegernsee advent magic). The Rottach Christmas market is supposed to be the most beautiful. The ship also offers a Christmas market hopping across the lake.
Das Tegernsee LIVING WORLDS
The special features of the DAS TEGERNSEE are the different living worlds: the historic Sengerschloss, where we spent the night and the four differently designed living worlds Quirin hostel, Tegernsee house, Haus Wallberg, the Alpenchalets. One world for everyone’s taste.
Architecture & design
The redevelopment of the living worlds was carried out by the renowned Munich architecture studio landau + kindelbacher. The historic building structure has been preserved and has been equipped with a modern design concept.
In the renovated Segnerschloss there are eight differently designed luxury suites. Each of the rooms has its own style maintaining the original shape. Old structures, such as wooden ceilings, were revalued with neoclassical elements.
Design lovers come here to their liking. Modern accents of brass and gold, elaborate wallpapers and designer pieces from Maxalto, Poliform, Gubi, Oasis and Knoll International, for example, melt history and the present into a larger whole. As an architect, I find the renovation very successful and we felt very comfortable in the premises of the Segnerschloss.

Prices per night including breakfast
Dogs are also welcome at DAS TEGERNSEE and you will have to pay 35€ extra.
Highly recommended are also the great packages, such as # alpenglühen, #alpinerluxus… Personally, I loved the two days of spa. Therefore, I recommend the #EasySunday package (189 € per person) very much. It includes an overnight stay from Sunday to Monday including breakfast buffet, a 25 minute massage, as well as the access of the spa and wellness oasis until departure.
Das Tegernsee THE BREAKFAST
Extensively having breakfast, chatting with your girlfriend and having a relaxed start to the morning – the perfect start to our girl’s holiday. The Restaurant Senger is located on two levels, where of you’ll have a wonderful view of the Tegernsee. We were incredibly lucky with the weather and could then enjoy some hours of sunshine on the terrace.
The breakfast selection at the buffet was great and everything tasted very good. We loved the fact that typical Bavarian Weisswurst was served for breakfast. But you can also order all other egg dishes.
- Personally, I would loved to been offered some fresh juices. I love it when hotels have juice presses where you can have a healthy vegetable or fruits drink.
Das Tegernsee WELLNESS & FITNESS
After spending a few hours in the sun, a little sports session before sunset was perfect. DAS TEGERNSEE has a small well-equipped gym. I did a 40 minute interval run having a fantastic mountain view followed by some HIIT exercises. Whenever I spend a few days in a hotel, I try to exercise at least a bit.
DAY SPA at Das Tegernsee
A day spa at DAS TEGERNSEE is particularly popular. In 2016, the more than 2,400 square meter wellness oasis was expanded. In addition to a large pool with outdoor pool, there is also a Finnish sauna, forest and bio sauna and aroma steam bath.
Not to miss – the sauna infusion with the Ammersee Bua!
I absolutely love sauna infusions at wellness hotels. Our sauna master, the “Ammersee Bua” Andreas made great infusions with different flavors. I highly recommend to join sauna infusions at hotels. But make sure to take breaks in between and drink plenty. The feeling afterwards is incredibly good!
My personal highlight was relaxing at the fireplace lounge between the sauna sessions. The view of the mountains was incredibly calming. A stove is just something wonderful!
In addition to the Senger restaurant you can also have dinner in the Alpenbrasserie, where they serve regional alpine cuisine. It also calls for a nightcap after dinner.
And so our stay at DAS TEGERNSEE came to an end. A break on the Tegernsee has done incredibly well. I can highly recommend you the DAS TEGERNSEE. As I said – the packages are very tempting!
