Hotel Franks *****

Oberstdorf (D)

“Time with friends” at five-star level — how would that be? The Franks is a perfect example of how casual luxury works. The secret is a carefully crafted and unique concept for this hotel that only works here and is tailor-made. All decisions are based on the story that the hotel tells — from the architecture to the small details.

Very different areas have been redesigned lately: the bar, the lounge and the Gipfel Spa. The general atmosphere is calm, but never boring. When it comes to fabrics, textures are more important than patterns, which are often inspired by plants and nature. Quilted fabrics, velour, chenille yarns — they all create a cosy and comfortable feel in seating and lounge furniture.

At the same time, the colour red is a tribute to the surroundings, used with great sensitivity and in carefully selected places. After all, interior design tells the story of a location by its very own means. We visited the Franks once the construction work was finished and spoke to Cora Bethke-Frank about ideas, concepts and experiences during the construction phase. Read the interview in our blog >>>
