As a Certified Green Hotel - and due to our great location in the mountains, - we have chosen not to use an individually controllable air-conditioning system. High summer temperatures are rare in the mountains, and the air cools down quickly in the evening, so that air conditioning is not really necessary in Grainau. Therefore, we appeal to your solidarity and hope you would share our engagement for the environment.
