Seezeitlodge – A spa hotel in a unique location


The mission of GRAFT architects when designing the Seezeitlodge was to harness the natural ambience, energy and character of this special place and architecturally highlight these elements. Their impressive success is on display at this extraordinary hotel and wellness facility on a wooded promontory overlooking the lake in northeastern Saarland. Outdoor areas are stylishly accented with a perfectly coordinated arrangement of BEGA luminaires.

The Seezeitlodge in Gonnesweiler invites guests to return to nature for a relaxing break in the green, forested landscape of the highlands. The clear highlight is a sweeping panoramic view of the 120-hectare Bostalsee Lake in the Sankt Wendel countryside which can be enjoyed from nearly all of the hotel's 98 rooms. In 2018 and 2019, GEO Saison named the Seezeitlodge as one of the 100 most beautiful hotels in Europe, a distinction that comes as no surprise.

The grounds extending over 12,000 m2 are accessed by a curved road flanked by BEGA light building elements featuring asymmetrical flat beam light distribution. Both in the entrance area and along the route to the Seezeitlodge's own golf course 12 kilometers away, sturdy bollards with rotationally symmetrical light provide glare-free illumination. Reflector technology directs light onto the ground over large areas. This lighting is complemented by bollards with flat beam light distribution throughout the entire outdoor grounds. They lead the way through the gardens to the sauna area. In front of the sauna cabin, glare-free BEGA on-ground luminaires with a low mounting height and 180° light emission provide orientation and show the way. At the same time, LED in-ground luminaires resistant to foot traffic highlight the trees planted around the sauna with symmetrical light distribution and create a warm and cosy atmosphere for contrast during cold seasons. In this way, BEGA luminaires contribute to the special magic of the Seezeitlodge throughout all outdoor areas.
