A WELL-ESTABLISHED, FAMILY-OWNED COMPANY & ITS HISTORY
Healthy roots and lasting success
Buchinger Wilhelmi is a successful, family-run business that is now managed by the fourth generation. We therefore look back on a long history – yet the spirit of the founding generation continues to have a vibrant and undiminished effect. This unique blend of change and continuity can be explained by what we do, and how we do it. It is conservative because it is about preserving health and a joy of life. It is progressive because we combine the knowledge handed down from previous generations with modern scientific methods and are continuously evolving. And we are passionate about it, because helping people to take responsibility for their own health is a wonderful and meaningful thing.
To this day, our concept is based on classical Buchinger therapeutic fasting, supplemented with elements and methods of integrative medicine, as well as inspiring incentives for the mind and soul. Building on this, we are continuously developing our method in collaboration with university research institutes. Of course, we also take into account the rapid progress made by international fasting researchers in recent years.
The anniversary year 2023
In 2023, two further milestones have been achieved: the 70th anniversary of the clinic on Lake Constance, and the 50th of the clinic on the Costa del Sol.
Fasting at Buchinger Wilhelmi today
Even today, the Buchinger Wilhelmi programme is based on the three traditional dimensions of fasting: the medical and physical dimension (medically and therapeutically supported, scientifically proven, tailored to the individual), mental and spiritual inspiration, and interpersonal interaction and intercultural encounters.
Dr. Otto Buchinger defined the medical and spiritual dimensions. His daughter Maria Buchinger Wilhelmi developed the third dimension of warm-hearted, interpersonal communication. Together with 24 doctors, the descendants of Dr. Otto Buchinger are continuously honing the Buchinger therapeutic fasting method – for the good and the health of more than 7,000 guests from 60 countries each year.
We would be delighted to welcome you to our clinics very soon!
