In 2013, 40 years after it was founded, the family-run Lindner Group has grown to become one of Germany's leading hotel companies. In 2012 it employed around 2,000 people and generated €170 million in turnover. The Lindner Group currently has 33 hotels in seven European countries, ranging from modern business hotels in major cities to a variety of high-class spa and sports resorts. Some hotels were taken on when they were experiencing financial difficulties and have been successfully repositioned on the market. In recent times, franchises have been added. Like the group's existing hotels, these offer individual holiday concepts, excellent quality, and innovative spa experiences.
