An average STERN guest does not produce more than 12.5 kg of CO2 emissions per night. In an international ranking this corresponds to climate category A. In addition, the hotel itself reduces its anual CO2 emissions by 5 to 10%. All the emissions that cannot be avoided are balanced by supporting a climate protection project in the Third World, as well as providing regional common property, e.g. traditionally managed orchards. The guests at STERN experience how beneficial it is to reduce their own CO2 footprint while being on holiday. They are able to choose seasonal set menus, whose ingredients and recipies stem from commited local producers. Furthermore, guests have the opportunity to spend a night in a hay barn in the larch tree fields (Hay Snoring), they may tag wildly grown food on their iPad and harvest it (www.mundraub.org) and participate in cooking classes where they learn how to make use of these products.
