Hotel Cristal - Nachhaltigkeit und Umwelt

Sustainability

Hotel Cristal stands for sustainable and conscious interaction with the environment in order to safeguard sustainability:

We put an emphasis on regional and organic foods and work together with partners from the region.

The future of the next generation means a lot to us. We take our social responsibilities seriously and therefore offer traineeships specifically for individuals from socially deprived families.

We share close links with our locale at Munich Central Station. This is shown by our involvement with the newly founded neighbourhood initiative ""Südliches Bahnhofsviertel e.V."".
