Schwarzwald Panorama, a 4-star hotel in the Bad Herrenalb municipality in Germany, has received a Sustainable Hospitality Award.

The hotel room concept is based on the principles of the ‘cradle to cradle’ design. This means that in the selection of all building elements, attention is paid to material health, recyclability, climate neutrality, decarbonisation, high social standards and regeneration quality.

The rooms feature 100% biodegradable or recyclable materials such as real moss and sheep’s wool.

The hotel’s location in Germany’s northern Black Forest has inspired the design, which was realised with the interior design team of Fritz Schlecht I SHL and Rittweger and Team. It took three years to develop the concept.

Three sample rooms were completed and ready for occupancy in December 2022. A further 21 rooms will follow by June 2023 and the entire fourth floor by spring 2024.

The hotel states: “Our rooms are part of the solution towards the important milestone for the entire hospitality industry with regard to the Paris 1.5 degree target and the European Green Deal.”
