Environmental protection & sustainability

Award for sustainable ecological and therefore forward-looking commitment

We are committed to preserving values and treating nature and our entire environment with care. Environmental protection and sustainability are important issues for us, which is why we ensure that natural resources are used sparingly.

The Hotel Linslerhof has held the title “Certified Green Hotel” since 2011. As a conference hotel, the Linslerhof is one of the few business hotels that meet the strict requirements of the German Travel Management Association (VDR).

With our overall concept for sustainable and ecologically forward-looking behavior, we are pioneers in Saarland.


We are one of the largest private producers of solar power in the southwest and supply more than 10,000 households in the region with environmentally friendly electricity. We also produce solar power for our own use.


Hotel guests can charge their electric vehicle at our two 22KW wallboxes at low cost. And 10 times faster than from a household socket!


As a bee-friendly farm, we have a wildflower meadow and our own bee colonies, which produce delicious Linslerhof honey. (Available at the reception.)


The farm’s own sewage treatment plant ensures that only biologically purified water is returned to the “Linslerhof water protection area”. This ensures the best possible use of the scarce resource of water.


As an alternative to a minibar in the room, our “Roter Salon” is a 24-hour self-service bar. You are welcome to leave drinks for cooling at reception.


Our gastronomy attaches great importance to sourcing products from regional suppliers. The vegetables come 100% from regional cultivation, there is Saarland Moselle wine, various Demeter wines as well as schnapps and beer from the surrounding area. Our coffee, espresso and chocolate are Fairtrade and organic certified. Vegetable and meat trimmings are processed into stocks and soups. Induction plates are used to save as much energy as possible and the lights in the restaurant remain off until shortly before the guests arrive. Attention is also paid to strict waste separation and the abolition of part-time work has eliminated unnecessary travel.

Modern agricultural management at Linslerhof

Agriculture and livestock farming characterize the long history of the Linslerhof. Pigs, cattle and horses were kept in the spacious stables and grain, rapeseed and potatoes were grown in the fields.
The passionate farmer Ewald Meyer has been successfully running the fields and managing the equestrian farm with its more than 50 horse boxes and the many surrounding paddocks as a service provider for more than 35 years.

Rye, barley, maize and rapeseed are grown on the 130 hectares of farmland on the estate. As an essential part of modern agricultural management, the types of crops grown change every three years in order to sustainably maintain and renew soil fertility. Hay and straw are harvested on a further 130 hectares of the estate’s own land, which can therefore be used for riding without having to travel long distances.
In addition, a large-scale solar plant was built, which now supplies more than 10,000 households in the region with environmentally friendly solar power.
