Exemplary sustainably committed hotels

Fabian Wallner, Bad Staffelstein

The Best Western Plus Kurhotel an der Obermaintherme in Bad Staffelstein has firmly established sustainable measures in its operations and was awarded the Dehoga Environmental Check in Gold for this. Among other things, the conference hotel is a member of the association "United Against Waste e.V." and stands for the respectful handling of the resource food. Highly structured by the association membership so the sustainability with the reduction of food waste and the waste of valuable resources is further developed. A completely new sustainable kitchen concept was introduced at the spa hotel: From the field to the table, resource-conserving and Franconian-regional, that's how Fabian Wallner, the chef, cooks. The nutrition expert has developed his own sustainable concept "B(o)orn for Nature" and implements it in the creation of his dishes every day. According to this, all ingredients and products used meet at least three of the following five criteria: organic, ecological, economic, regional and sustainable - in short "boorn" – a plus for humans, animals and the environment.
