Creativhotel Luise Erlangen

Once upon a time …

When Klaus Förtsch took over the hotel from his parents at the end of the 80s and started implementing the green philosophy, terms like “green weirdo” were still harmless.

Founded in 1956 the Creativhotel Luise was one of the forerunners in regards of sustainability in the hotel industry. Today the house is led in the third generation by Ben Förtsch who improves the green tradition of the hotel daily.

At every corner you feel the influence of the different generations, united by the efforts of improving the sustainable efforts every day.

This corresponds to the excellent climate-efficiency class A. Viabono certified the hotel’s CO2 footprint, which is calculated on a yearly base. The average emission of a 3 star hotel amounts to 35 kg of CO2 per overnight stay, which is much higher than at the Creativhotel Luise.
