WHETHER visiting a luxury hotel for business or pleasure, it’s always preferable to be able to rest easy without worrying about the impact of your indulgence on the environment. At the Derag Livinghotel am Viktualienmarkt in Munich you can be guaranteed to enjoy the highs of the metropolitan lifestyle safe in the knowledge that the hotel, the fourth in the Living Hotel chain, has won countless awards for its considerable efforts to be energy efficient. The hotel is a few streets away from a busy street market, the Viktualienmarkt, from which the hotel takes its name.
The concept is to be as sustainable and climate friendly as possible and this has been achieved through innovative thinking with regard to the hotel’s design. Special features include ground-breaking internal structuring, solar thermal systems, threefold insulation and reusing waste energy. In addition, the interiors are furnished only by regional and German materials, reducing the hotel’s carbon footprint and supporting local business at the same time.
Along with the hotel’s commitment to the environment, their onsite restaurant is dedicated to delivering meat free, healthy and delicious food. Continuing with the low-carbon theme, all produce is sourced from the city’s famous Viktualienmarkt, situated right outside the hotel.
Whether you’re a veteran vegetarian or simply veggie-curious, enjoy tantalising your taste buds in the stylish setting – true to the Derag’s house style – and soak up the atmosphere while you watch the skilled chefs at work in the open view kitchen.
