Hotel Staudacherhof, Garmisch-Patenkirchen

The interplay of light and water – BEGA illumination at the base of the Zugspitze mountain

Nestled in a basin in the southern part of Upper Bavaria, Garmisch-Partenkirchen is surrounded by massive rock formations with a view of Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze. Mountaineers and climbers use the famous health resort as a base camp for their holiday activities alongside visitors looking for rest and relaxation. One popular accommodation for visitors is the family-run 4-star Hotel Staudacherhof. Its showpiece, a luxurious indoor pool, is outfitted with BEGA luminaires.

The Staudacherhof Hotel is just a short walk from the centre of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. After receiving a warm welcome on their arrival, guests experience a harmonious blend between a sophisticated inn with traditional Bavarian charm and a modern lifestyle hotel. This includes a range of quality wellness and spa services including massages, yoga and aqua aerobics in the distinctive indoor pool.

Here there are DALI-controlled BEGA recessed ceiling downlights that illuminate this oasis of relaxation from the ceiling with symmetrical wide beam light distribution. The downlights are arranged parallel to the border of the swimming pool, marking a clear distinction between the lounge area and the swimming area. Their efficient light directed towards the ground surface is enhanced by a reflector and playfully reflected in the water from various angles. The recessed luminaires feature graphite-coloured aluminium trim rings that blend seamlessly with the aesthetics of the room. With their sophisticated light and look, the BEGA luminaires highlight the elegant, relaxing atmosphere of the indoor pool at the Staudacherhof.

Thanks to their high protection class, BEGA luminaires are ideally suited for use in the challenging area of indoor pools and are designed for ambient temperatures of more than 35 degrees Celsius (information in the specific product data sheets).

In pools where chlorine is used to disinfect the water, BEGA also offers a special paint as a custom-made product. This is specifically designed for demanding protective requirements in spaces such as indoor pools or environments influenced by sea air.
