When I wrote about Daberer and Posthotel I already told you that I was craving for some mountains and snow this year. And I’ve been lucky enough to get exactly that! My last stop has been at a place with an impressive history: Tannerhof at Bayrischzell, Germany. It was built in 1904 and it has always been a place known for naturopathy and its “back to nature” attitude. For generations until today the concept of a healthy life is the core philosophy of Tannerhof. This is why you can still find an extensive range of offerings like therapeutic fasting, gymnastics, various checkups, massages, deceleration cures etc. So I took the chance and had a full health checkup which I never seemed to have the time for when being home. Also, there are wellness options like sauna and massages which are to die for. Deceleration is another guiding principle at Tannerhof. This is why you won’t find television nor WLAN at the rooms which I found to be very refreshing. And not just that: my so called “Turmzimmer” has been an absolute delight. Everything was made out of wood and through my huge window and balcony I was able to enjoy a panoramic view over the mountains and sorrounding forest.
And I have been very excited about the food when I found out about the food philosophy at Tannerhof: there is one 4 course menu each evening and everything is 100% local and organic. And one thing I found to be especially impressive: 3 days a week there is a vegetarian menu for everyone due to sustainability and health reasons. Also, it has been no problem at all to order a full vegetarian diet for the whole time I stayed there. And the food truly turned out to be one of the highlights of my stay. Although it has been healthy indeed, it didn’t taste like that if you know what I mean 😉 That has been haute cuisine on a high level and you may take a look at the pictures to get an idea. Not to mention the breakfast. Oh, the breakfast! I guess I never found more variety of even vegan options at an breakfast buffet. I just couldn’t stop myself each morning and people must have been thinking that I was getting breakfast for two..
To wrap it up: those days at Tannerhof have been just perfect for contemplation, its beautiful nature and surroundings and to recharge batteries. To top it all, the amazing quality of the food made me feel like I’ve nourished my body as much as my soul during my stay.
