Electric mobility

Sales of electric or hybrid vehicles are still comparably low, but that is all set to change in the future. There are reports that state subsidies will be offered for the purchase of such vehicles and the number charging stations, currently only about 5,000 (as of June, 2015), is forecast to increase. In line with this growing trend, we have installed an electric charging station in our car park as an additional service and option for the future. Our guests may of course use this service free of charge.

Food “from the local area”

is becoming more and popular with grocery shoppers. For us, however, this trend is already a tradition. Lamb from local sheep farmers or venison shot by hunters in local forests have been on our menu for years.

In turn, this also means that beer from Flensburg or potatoes from Egypt are a taboo, allowing us to focus more on fresher produce and – incidentally – reduce environmental damage from transport pollution.

Since 1962, we have been tapping our own high-quality water from a 41m deep well.

CHP stations

help us turn sustainability into a highly effective reality. CHP (combined heat and power) stations can produce both energy and useful heat. While the mechanical energy is turned directly into electrical energy, the heat that is also produced can be used for heating or cooling purposes. This process leads to a primary energy saving of up to 40%. CO² emissions compared to energy generation by conventional large power stations can also be reduced by as much as 60%.
