Sustainability for today, with tomorrow in mind
A regional reforestation project
Long dry periods and climate extremes have taken their toll on our once lush German forests. As a result of ongoing issues, large sections of forests have been cut down, further wrecking havoc in these areas. To counter the devastation that has ensued, and because of our love and appreciation of nature, we initiated our regional reforestation project, starting from a single sprout. Join us.

The first 11,000 seedlings
Our regional reforestation project went from idea to execution in a few short months, starting with 11,000 seedlings from regional tree nurseries ready to be planted. From our hands to the grounds of the Hinterlandwald forest around Hofgut Mappen, these seedlings were planted with hope and promise for a greener future so that generations after us can continue to enjoy the unique beauty of German forests.Our reforestation project in 1:32 min
The first 11.000
We are particularly proud of the fact that we were able to start the first large planting campaign in the 'Hinterlandswald' as early as the beginning of February this year.
Within just one week we were able to plant 11,000 seedlings on an area of 5.1 ha with our forestry company!
The beginning has been made and we are already looking forward to literally creating a new habitat for the local nature.
Are you wondering why we are planting trees and how you can get involved? Then have a look at our short video.
We love nature
Trees are oxygen producers, carbon stores, habitats, food sources, shade providers and much more. As a retreat from the world, they offer an infinite source of solace. That's why we want to help Germany's forests with your help.
Join our efforts
We focus on a climate-stable, regional and near-natural mixed forest. With you and the right expertise at hand, we can create a sustainable forest for our region, right on our doorstep in the Hinterlandwald in the Rheingau-Taunus.Plant a tree
In line with our mission on sustainability, the entirety of the LÉGÈRE HOTELGROUP has switched to green electricity and gas.
Green electricity is produced from renewable resources such as wind, sun and geothermal energy or else generated from biomass, including wood, grain, and agricultural and forestry waste.
Beginning in 2022, we are now supplied with 100% clean green electricity. The green electricity comes from TÜV SÜD, certified European hydropower plants. With an average consumption of 1,152 MWh per year, we can reduce our carbon footprint by 406 tonnes.

Sweet gifts from nature
Albert Einstein once said, “No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.” For our love of nature and the planet, and for our love of the gifts nature gives us, we truly take this to heart. LÉGÈRE HOTEL Taunusstein welcomes the smallest guests in our insect hotel. At the same time, our Leipzig rooftop hosts two beehives, and herb gardens can be found in many of our locations, adorning food and drinks with fresh garnishes.
