Environmental Protection

The SCHWARZWALD PANORAMA pursues a 3 columns concept for effective climate protection:

  • Avoiding CO₂ emissions and integration of CO-neutral products
  • Neutralization of any remaining residual emissions through offsetting projects.
  • All guests are provided the opportunity to neutralize the CO₂ emissions generated at their arrival and departure in our reception area.


  • All environmental effects of the hotel operations are recorded and analyzed
  • The annual CO₂ emissions are calculated with the goal of the greatest possible reduction of CO₂ emissions
  • Use of eco-friendly cleaners sustainably produced printed products and other materials
  • species conservation (own beehives, birdhouses and feeding stations, wild bees and insect hotels)
  • raised-bed gardening, green roofs, flower meadows
  • the successful motivation of business partners to operate climate neutral
  • “KlimaSau” (climate sow): Guests can voluntarily contribute 1€ per night, which goes to the ClimatePartner projects
  • Events are automatically climate neutral within the conference flat rate
  • Green Weddings possible
  • Green Day Arrangement with climate-neutral arrival and departure, a green tour through the hotel for guests and optional calculating of the guest’s own carbon footprint

If requested, your stay at SCHWARZWALD PANORAMA will be climate neutral. The CO₂ emissions generated during your stay will be reported and offset through the support of recognized climate protection projects in collaboration with ClimatePartner.
