A step towards environmental protection

Sustainable breakfast at Bütgenbacher Hof

As part of our efforts to make a positive contribution in environmental protection, we have completely redesigned our breakfast buffet with sustainability in mind. This step marks an important start on our journey to becoming an even more environmentally friendly business, and we look forward to developing further in other areas too.

Avoiding pre-packaged products:

Our first step towards a more sustainable breakfast is to completely eliminate pre-packaged products. We not only want to reduce packaging waste, but also improve the quality and freshness of our ingredients. Fresh, unprocessed food is not only better for the environment, but also for the health of our guests.

Regional sourcing

Another important step is our effort to source as many of our ingredients regionally as possible. By supporting local farmers and producers, we not only want to strengthen the regional economy, but also minimise transport routes and CO2 emissions. This approach enables us to offer high-quality products while also helping to protect the environment.

Environmentally friendly alternatives:

Switching from paper napkins to cloth napkins is another step towards sustainability. By using reusable napkins, we not only reduce the consumption of disposable materials, but also create a stylish and appealing atmosphere at breakfast.

A sweet enrichment for our guests and the environment

Bees from become part of the Bütgenbacher-Hof family - A sweet enrichment for our guests and the environmentOur aim is to support biodiversity in our surroundings and at the same time make our guests aware of the important role bees play in our ecological cycle. For this project, we are guided by "BEE Together", under the guidance of Simon Aulbert.

Promoting biodiversity

The colonisation of our own bees is more than just a welcome enrichment for us. It is an active contribution to the protection of biodiversity in our surroundings. Surrounded by unspoilt nature, we as a hotel want to take responsibility for nature. Bees play a crucial role in the pollination of plants and thus contribute to the preservation of a diverse flora. By supporting the bee population, we want to help preserve and promote biodiversity in our ecological environment.

Our own honey for our guests

A special highlight of our beekeeping is the production of our own honey. Our busy bees diligently collect nectar from the surrounding nature and transform it into golden honey that reflects the unique flavour of our region. For our guests, this means the opportunity not only to enjoy the fruits of our nature, but also to take a piece of our sustainable philosophy home with them. The honey is processed in-house and is incorporated into the menus. Our guests can also purchase our own honey in our hotel shop.

Several times a year, during the harvest, we offer our guests the opportunity to take part in a small seminar. Here, "BEE Together" explains everything about bees and is happy to answer any questions our guests may have.
