Dr. Otto Buchinger, a German philosopher and physician, was convinced that “When the body fasts, the soul starves”. He believed that the instinctive desire for self-awareness and inner reflection triggered by fasting also supports the healing process at a physical, spiritual and emotional level.

Fasting means going without food voluntarily for a limited period of time. It strengthens the immune system and activates the body’s self-healing powers. Fasting under medical supervision can help to combat a number of chronic diseases and give you a new lease of life. 

Buchinger Wilhelmi supports you around the clock during your fast with medical care in relaxed surroundings. The clinic combines the best of Western medicine, ancient Far-Eastern naturopathy and the latest scientific findings.

You will be accompanied at all times by experts – doctors, nurses, therapists and medical staff with a holistic training.



This family-run business, now in the third generation, is situated on spacious grounds surrounded by beautiful scenery. A haven of warmth and security, it is an inspiring place. Buchinger Wilhelmi may be a medical clinic, but it has the standard of a premium hotel: All its residences are individually designed and follow a distinct artistic concept. Most rooms have sunny balconies with views over Lake Constance and Mainau Island.

Every day at Buchinger Wilhelmi follows a clearly structured routine: A health check in the morning, concerts in the evening, walks through the clinic’s gardens, a daily programme of activities ranging from yoga and Pilates to fitness and meditation, as well as art, music, literature and much more.

The daily programme is rounded off with treatments and therapies performed by specialists from the areas of medicine, physiotherapy, psychotherapy, nutrition, sport and beauty.
