At an altitude of 1,250 meters, the Burghotel Falkenstein nestles at the foot of Germany’s highest castle complex that bears the same name. The gourmet hotel knows how to impress with its award-winning cuisine and unmistakeable interior design. Complete bathroom provider Duravit features with design series such as Luv, White Tulip, and C.1.
Haute cuisine – unique location and culinary delights
The hotel not only boasts an extraordinary location, its culinary prowess is also outstanding, demonstrated not least by the Michelin Star awarded by the Michelin Guide in 2020. The team serves captivating modern cuisine as a “reinterpretation of classic dishes”.
The same approach was also taken to the design of the hotel. A unique sense of space with plenty of charm, cosiness, and sophisticated design produces an unparalleled atmosphere.
Free-standing bathtubs with a spectacular view
17 rooms and suites have been designed with a keen eye for detail. Each room is unique and has its own charm. For example, the bed in the “Ludwigstraumsuite” affords views of the starry sky over the Alps. A real highlight is the “Schlossblicksuite”, where guests can enjoy a view of Schloss Neuschwanstein from the free-standing Luv bathtub. “We were impressed straight away both by how the Luv bathtub looks and feels. As a high-quality free-standing bathtub, it blends perfectly into the living space and creates a perfect feel-good experience for our guests,” is the verdict of hotelier Simon Schlachter. Designed by Cecilie Manz, the bathtub’s surprisingly velvety feel sets it apart from the crowd. The material DuraSolid® allows for an amazingly thin bathtub rim and a spacious interior.
Most exacting requirements in the hotel environment
The family-run business renovated the hotel in spring 2022. Duravit products were selected for the remodelling of the Burghotel. “As a hotel operator we place a lot of value on exclusive design and durability. Bathroom products need to look good – that’s a given – but at the same time they need to meet the highest standards in terms of hygiene and ease of care.”
White Tulip combines these requirements. With an extravagant design by Designer Philippe Starck, the above-counter basins of the series lend uniqueness to the washing area, and the shape is inspired by the silhouette of a blooming tulip. The innovative material DuraCeram® makes delicate shapes with extremely thin wall thicknesses possible - hygienic, easy to clean and consequently highly robust, anti-wear, and scratch-resistant.
Additionally, C.1 faucets with a sophisticated look and design by Kurt Merki Jr. blend harmoniously into the high-class interior. C.1 faucets set the tone for the room with their unpretentious simplicity and create a perfect synthesis with the washbasin and bathtub.
