Environmentally-friendly stays and meetings 

For us, sustainability means behaving responsibly without forfeiting standards.  To ensure our future is successful and worthwhile, we focus today on warm hospitality and regional sourcing.  Based on the three fundamentals of sustainability, we are mindful of ecological and energy efficiency considerations, buy climate-friendly products and use resources carefully.  We fulfil our social obligations through such measures as fair business practices with our partners and employees.

Project Smart Hotel Supply

Alongside sustainability, digitalisation is one of the current big topics in the hotel industry.  We are delighted to be part of the research and development project: ‘Smart Hotel Supply’.  In co-operation with Regionalmanagement Nordhessen GmbH, the University of Kassel, energy provider EAM and the companies Betterspace and EMD, we aim to reduce costs and energy consumption in our hotel by up to 20 percent.  To do so, we are implementing more renewable energies and innovative measurement and analysis processes.

Enjoy a carbon neutral stay

We’re already investing in renewable energy and will spoil you with a delicious breakfast of regionally-sourced products, yet every night spent generates 72kg of CO2 emissions.  In co-operation with ClimatePartner, we offer you the opportunity to have a carbon neutral stay with us.  Choose to offset the carbon footprint of your stay for just 1.93 € per night, guaranteed by a certified climate protection project.  Find out here how much CO2 we have been able to offset to date.

E-mobility
on the Fairy-tale Route

Emobile travel
Want to experience the Fairy-tale Route without noise and pollution?  With your own or a rented E-car this is possible.  At nine locations on the German Fairy-tale Route, there are charging points operated by the company PLUG’n Charge.  Together with our partners Parkhotel Emstaler Höhe and Hotel Sonneck, we invite you to embark on a fairy-tale getaway.

 

Manuela Richer, the director of Marburger Hof views E-mobility as an important investment in the future: it advances co-operation with the German Fairy-tale Route, enhances the services available to our guests and attracts new groups of guests.
