Founded in 2011 in Berlin by the travel-journalists Thomas and Karen Klein and the IT expert Peter Haunert, VeggieHotels aims to simplify the search for suitable accommodation for travelers with a vegetarian lifestyle. All categories are represented on VeggieHotels – from the simple guesthouse to the genuine country house to the trendy city hotel.
Berlin, Germany (April 8, 2014) – With more than 500 hotels, guesthouses, seminar and health centers, the internet platform www.veggie-hotels.com offers the largest purely vegetarian/vegan hotel industry register worldwide.
Founded in 2011 in Berlin by the travel-journalists Thomas and Karen Klein and the IT expert Peter Haunert, VeggieHotels aims to simplify the search for suitable accommodation for travelers with a vegetarian lifestyle. There are plenty of reasons to pass on meat. Some have health motives while others are primarily driven by the ecological and ethical advantages of a vegetarian diet.
You can find VeggieHotels in more than 60 countries across all continents. All categories are represented on VeggieHotels – from the simple guesthouse to the genuine country house to the trendy city hotel. Moreover, many of the purely vegetarian hotels and guesthouses offer their guests further dietary options, like vegan cuisine, raw food, lactose or gluten free meals etc. Some members of the VeggieHotels association even cook exclusively vegan food.
Using the detailed search on www.veggie-hotels.com, you can select hotels and/or guesthouses by inputting up to 40 different criteria and thus, easily find your ideal, vegetarian holiday domicile.
In the US there are already more than 50 hotels and guesthouses that serve neither meat or fish. For example: the Eco-Resort “Stanford Inn by the Sea” on California’s Medocino Coast or the Park Lane Guest House B&B, an oasis in the middle of the historical SoCo district from Austin/Texas.
For the first time a hotel cooperation has chosen the topic “a climate-friendly, ethical and ecological diet” as the focus of their brand. In doing so, VeggieHotels addresses the growing target audience of people who lead vegetarian/vegan lifestyles.
Thomas Klein, CEO, predicts a strong growth of the vegetarian industry: “As the ecological and health disadvantages of a meat-based diet become more and more obvious, a clear trend-shift towards a vegetarian and vegan diet is observable – this will increasingly influence the culinary repertoire of the hotel cuisines. The step to a purely vegetarian offer is a reasonable alternative in the direction to a sustainable, ethical and health-conscious hotel industry.”
