History

Our cottage consists of two historical buildings. The old natural stone house was already built in the 18th century as a residential house for the farmer family. The half-timbered barn was probably added in the 19th century and used for cattle. The arrangement in a rectangular angle of the two buildings is typical for the Eifel and known as "Winkelhof".

The originally agriculturally used property was lovingly restored. During the core renovation of the stone house, French coins from 1726 were discovered, so the history can be dated back to around 1720. Since 2018, the estate at the foot of the striking Aremberg has been owned by the Pannhausen family, which is why we have given it the name "Landhaus am Aremberg". 

Our environmental philosophy

We live on a planet with finite resources and at the same time in an environment of infinite diversity of small and large wonders of nature. For these reasons, in our daily actions we feel especially obliged to future generations to have as positive an influence as possible on the climate, the environment and nature. The Landhaus am Aremberg was originally built in 1720 as a farmhouse with adjoining stables using regional materials and was usually occupied by three generations at the same time. Today, it impressively shows us how sensible and long-lasting sustainable behaviour is. Therefore, we always base our actions on the aspects of ecology, public welfare/regionality and resource-saving energy use.

Below we inform you about our efforts to reduce the footprint as well as our principles of responsible management.

Energy

- We only use electricity from renewable sources, including our in-house photovoltaic system since the beginning of 2023. This system actually produces more electricity than is consumed in the course of a year at Landhaus am Aremberg.

- Almost all light sources have been converted to LED or other energy-saving technologies.

- With the help of digital heating thermostats, the room temperature is optimally adjusted and about 20% heating energy is saved.

Water

- The garden and the pond are irrigated using the rainwater collected in the in-house well.

- Eco shower heads reduce water consumption by approx. 30% while maintaining the same showering comfort.

Avoidance and separation of waste

- Each residential unit has appropriate containers for the correct separation of waste, a large part of which can be recycled in this way. - We avoid unnecessary waste with the help of refill packs.

- We do not use any disposable hygiene products in the bathroom.

Common good/regionalism

- We only use regional craftsmen with short travel distances.

- We support the local retail trade and the local gastronomy, please see our recommendations in the guest folder.

- We are a partner company of Eifel Touristik (ET) and live the idea of a strong location with conviction. 

Ecology

- No chemicals or other harmful aids are used in our garden. We pay attention to a variety of plants.

- Only sustainably certified products are used for cleaning and in the area of detergents.

- We participate in the primeval forest project of the Wohlleben Forest Academy in several sections and thus help to permanently bind CO2 in the forest.

- We were awarded the EU Ecolabel in 2023 as part of an EU-funded project. This means we are committed to transparent and audited business management in compliance with numerous sustainability criteria.

Our promise

We are aware that climate and environmental protection is a process. Despite our constant efforts, we can and want to improve or become more sustainable in many areas. For this reason, we have developed an action plan with concrete implementation plans for the future. With the help of the action plan, we can check after two years where we have fulfilled our plans and where we should improve. It is not only the big or even cost-intensive changes that have a positive impact on our environment. We will continue to "turn over every stone" and implement all forms of improvement. Do you have ideas or suggestions for improvement? Then we should definitely talk about them or you can simply use our guest questionnaire for your suggestions. Thank you very much! Together we create and maintain an environment worth living in.
