carbon footprint

Our carbon footprint (7,54kg CO2 per overnight stay) is one of the lowest in the international ranking. We are certified with an “A” rating with regards to the sustainability and climate efficiency rating. Our goal is to enable our guests to enjoy a green holiday with as little as possible carbon emissions and impact on the environment.

Facts & Figures


The average emission of a similar hotel in the category 3 star is 35kg CO2 per night. If you decide to stay at our place, you will only exhaust 7,54 kg which includes having dinner and us cleaning your room during and after your stay. With this we are top in class in the international gastronomy corresponding to the highest climate efficiency class “A”.

Side note: 8 kg CO2 comply with the production of around 5 litre milk, 700g beef or 30 km driven by car (with the consumption of 6l/100km).

Over the years we have work hard to reduce our CO2 emissions by:

  • Implementing 100% ecologically friendly electricity using local resources
  • Switching to a heating system that allows us to use our own/local resources
  • Installing additional air/heating pumps for max. reuse of energy
  • Building our own drinking water system
  • Maximizing the usage of regional products in our kitchen
  • Using recycling paper in various areas of the hotel
  • Washing/drying our hotel linen in house
  • Using an electric car


Climate protection starts on a small scale – everyone can contribute – we do!
