Hotel Restaurant Clemens-August

Acting sustainably – taking responsibility

Sustainability

The guiding principle of our daily work

The Hotel Restaurant Clemens-August is located in the heart of the Davert, the largest contiguous forest area in the Münsterland. Pure nature that invites you to hike and enjoy. The Davert is characterized by old gnarled oaks, deciduous forests over 100 years old and partly impenetrable undergrowth and swamp forests that merge into the neighboring Venner Moor. Nature, our home, is close to our hearts. That is why sustainability is a personal concern in our daily work.
