Participation in the "Katzensprung 2.0" project

We are delighted to announce that we are a proud participant in the Schwalm-Nette Nature Park's "Katzensprung 2.0" project. The aim of this exciting project is not only to offer our guests an unforgettable holiday, but also to protect our environment in a sustainable way.

As part of the project, we are already implementing a number of criteria that focus on sustainability, climate protection and regionality. But we are not resting on our laurels. On the contrary: we see it as our duty to fulfil even more criteria in the future and to intensify our commitment to a greener future. We are already working with solar panels on our roof and will soon be offering the option of using electric charging points directly in front of the hotel, which are powered directly by our solar panels.

We are convinced that small steps can lead to big changes. That is why we invite you to join us on this journey and work together towards a more sustainable future.
