The house is also a conference hotel and a meeting center, offering companies and organisations an ideal environment for meetings, conferences and seminars.The building, a masterpiece by the Swiss architect André Studer, is conceived according to the principles of "harmonic architecture", in which all proportions equal musical intervals and is said to have its own characteristic sound. The well-known landscape gardener Josef Seleger combined the building and the park into a harmonious whole.

Openess and silence, outstanding architecture and relaxing nature, spiritual impulses and culinary delights: this is what awaits guests at the Lassalle-Haus – a fascinating center for those looking to contribute a new perspective to business and society.
