sustainability concept – Malzmühle goes green

We pay attention to our ecological footprint and we want to use resources more sparingly. As part of our sustainability concept for the sake of the environment, we therefore refrain from daily room cleaning and linen change for short 2-day stays.
In this way we save a lot of energy, water and cleaning agents, which would otherwise unnecessarily pollute the water. If you want your room to be cleaned, please inform the reception by 10:00 am.
The environment and we say thank you.

In the room you will find some amenities for your body & hygiene. All products used by and come from sustainable production, packaging made of paper or cornstarch, shoehorns or toothbrushes made of bamboo or wheatgrass. If you’ve forgotten something come to the reception to ask.
