Grandhotel Lienz launches SymbioMed to medical tourism market

In the heart of the beautiful Austrian Alps, the Grandhotel Lienz is presenting a new concept in health and wellness centres in hotels – SymbioMed, incorporating the symbiosis of the different medical branches. 

By complimenting conventional medicine with the latest medical advances, the centre is gaining recognition around the world as vacationers flock here for both basic and extended physical check-ups at rates generally far below those in the US.

Travellers may also seek diagnosis, recuperation, sports examinations, weight loss programs, heart check-ups, nutrition programs, homeopathy and traditional Chinese medicine, all at reasonable rates. 

Further programs for stopping smoking, skin care, and anti-aging are available. 

In addition to services at the medical centre, guests at the Grandhotel Lienz enjoy a luxury suite overlooking the River Isel and the mountains, extraordinary facilities, including a spa where natural treatments are highlighted, and the many nearby activities.


The Medical Centre, occupying over 2690 sq. ft. is led by professor Peter Lechleitner, internationally known for internal medicine and cardiology. 

He is the leader of the department for internal medicine at the hospital of Lienz and was part of the coordination team for the world’s most successful heart attack study.

He has also studied sports medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, including acupuncture.

If you need a MRI, CT or Endoscopy there is collaboration with the hospital of Lienz, five minutes away that are made with state-of-the-art machines. 

Nor is there a need to stay overnight at the hospital so the patients return to the hotel.  Every guest receives a doctor’s letter with all results and recommendations to ensure a smooth and speedy communication with a primary physician back home.
