The green Story

When Klaus Förtsch took over the hotel from his parents at the end of the 80s he started implementing the green philosophy - terms like "green weirdo" were still harmless.

Founded in 1956, the Creativhotel Luise in Erlangen, Germany, was one of the forerunners regarding sustainability in the hotel industry. Today the house is led in third generation by Ben Förtsch who unites the influences of the different generations and improves the green tradition and the sustainable efforts of the hotel day by day. 

The family-run Creativhotel Luise stands for the fact that sustainability and economic efficiency do not exclude themselves. It is an example how to integrate the already existing and the new to be efficient, sustainable and climate-neutral. The hotel operates according to ecological principles with the priority to fulfill the responsibility towards future generations. 

Also the employees, who are already occupied for a very long time at the hotel, identify themselves completly with the philosophy of the house and transfer this feeling to the guests. For this very reason, guests come over and over again.
