In Berlin, Everything Is Possible: Eco-Friendly Hotels

Berlin has the most modern hotels in Europe, so it is no wonder that hotels, too, distinguish themselves through their eco-friendly concepts. The latest addition is Lulu Guldsmeden, an eco-friendly boutique hotel in the Potsdamer Straße area. The Danish brand brings its relaxed, yet quirky “hygge” mentality to the German capital and offers a home to modern families and conscious urban travelers. Opened in 2018 in a refurbished mid-19th-century Altbau, all rooms come with sustainable bamboo beds, organic cotton linen and the hotel’s own line of natural toiletries in bottles made from recyclable consumer waste. In their restaurant Saeson, the menu follows the local seasons and is 100% organic, from food to wines and spirits. For a sunset ride through nearby Gleisdreieck Park, guests can borrow one of the Berlin-made Schindelhauer bikes - the greenest way to explore the city. ,

The Almodóvar Hotel that opened in 2012 in the trendy Friedrichshain district calls itself a "bio-hotel" and pays attention to the smallest details: it only serves organic food, its furniture is made of sustainably grown wood, only certified natural cosmetics are offered in the bathrooms. Scandic Hotels understands itself as a sustainable Scandinavian hotel chain and opened a 563-room building on Potsdamer Platz in 2010.
