"Every strong tree was once a small plant and every great deed begins with a simple but important thought."

Nowadays running a hotel means more than welcoming guests and taking good care of them. The Erbprinz: more than proud of the past, living in the present, but above all looking to the future and to the future generations coming after us. That is why the Erbprinz is wholeheartedly committed to sustainability and to going green and environment-friendly. And that since 1788.

On this page we provide insights into our „The Erbprinz goes green“ concept. A process that is highly complex in a hotel like ours. And one that is constantly in motion with adjustments. But we have accepted the challenge of combining being as environment-friendly as possible with being a 5-star luxury hotel and are already implementing changes in many ways. For you, for us and for all the future generations.

Energy management

One of the hardest challenges - our energy management. Sparing energy and helping our planet vs. luxury and feeling pampered at the Erbprinz. Challenge accepted.

Paper vs. E-Mail

Paper and printed contents are an integral part of the Erbprinz and our 5-star traditions. But with a strong local paper supplier and a gradual paperless transition, we manage the balancing act.
