Sindelfingen: The Erikson Hotel is doing a lot to reduce CO2 emissions
The Sindelfingen Erikson Hotel makes an important contribution to climate protection. In January 2018, the new combined heat and power plant was put into operation. In July of this year, a photovoltaic system was added to the hotel roof.
"We believe in renewable energies," says Wolfgang Kramer, Senior Manager of the Sindelfingen Erikson Hotel. Managing Director Peter Kramer agrees with his father: “Sustainability plays a major role in our hotel. In addition to making a contribution to climate protection, the combined heat and power plant and photovoltaic system also save money.” And the numbers are impressive. The combined heat and power plant alone has saved a total of 260 tons of CO2 in the Erikson Hotel since January 1, 2018. “This corresponds to 1.7 million kilometers that you could drive by car. That's enormous," says Peter Kramer.
For guests who cannot or do not want to travel by car, there is an S-Bahn connection directly opposite our house.
The bus station is about 2 minutes walk from us.
More and more of our hotel guests use the proximity of the Erikson Hotel to the surrounding companies and cycle to work. You can now conveniently park your bike in our underground car park.
The S-Bahn station opposite offers cyclists and nature lovers staying at the Erikson Hotel great connections to popular cycling and hiking trails in nearby Schönbuch and Heckengäu.

The success of our industry begins with the training of our specialists.
That is why we have been training professionals at the Erikson Hotel for many years. We are very proud if you stay with us after your training and strengthen our team. But we are also pleased when they take advantage of the wide range of opportunities offered by the hotel and catering industry and move out into the world to develop further.
Our trainees are an important part of our successful team. In the certification process for a TOP training company by our industry association DEHOGA, they rated our good training work very positively. As a result, we received the DEHOGA quality seal “TOP training company” in March 2022.
Many thanks, dear trainees!
