A good host should never leave a cactus by their guests’ sofa; they should never put bananas in their lampshade, and they should roll out the red carpet in front of the door, not behind it. Annette Katrin Seidel and her son Franz Philip Seidel see things slightly differently. That is exactly why their guests at the Laurichhof should feel as if they are in just the right place, and enjoy a welcoming reception.
The two designers from Pirna have an unusual idea for turning the traditional recreational landscape of Saxon Switzerland into a unique holiday experience: a hotel of suites that is as multifaceted as its guests, as inspiring as a showroom and as cosy as an especially lovely home from home.
For Annette Katrin Seidel, the Laurichhof also represents the culmination of her roughly 30-year career – and a piece of family history.
That is something else she would like to pass on to her guests: the rewards of time.
“A hotel that is as multifaceted as its guests and as cosy as an especially lovely home from home – that was the idea.”
