Travelling sustainably – a conscious and healthy tourism is essential for a secure future and our society. Guests understandably place increasing value on sustainable solutions. We also see environmentally and resource-friendly actions as an opportunity for positive change. It is not necessary to transform into a fully sustainable hotel operation overnight – what is crucial is the realization that drives action, every single big and small step, and the willingness to change. We share this responsibility – employees and guests alike. We take our corporate social responsibility seriously, and we want to use resources consciously and gently, without straining them more than necessary. Below, you have the opportunity to learn about our sustainability measures.

DEHOGA Environmental Award

DEHOGA Environmental Award "Silver"

We were awarded the “Silver” category for our environmentally conscious and sustainable actions as part of our participation in the “DEHOGA Environmental Check”. The “DEHOGA Environmental Check” is the continuation of the energy campaign for the hospitality industry launched in 2006 in collaboration with the Federal Ministry for the Environment by the DEHOGA Federal Association. The “DEHOGA Environmental Check” was designed for the specific requirements of the hospitality industry and its predominantly small and medium-sized businesses. In addition to its industry relevance and practicality, it enables a fair and transparent comparison of participating businesses.
