Newly constructed ACHALM. Hotel & Restaurant

4-star, superior hotel at the foot of the Swabian Jura

Perched in the foothills of the Swabian Jura, near the ruins of Castle Achalm, the conference and family hotel Achalm beckons.
 
The building was constructed through the partnership of the architecture firms FLUM Architekten of Hamburg and Hartmaier + Partner of Reutlingen. The building’s wooden facade and stone base allow it to blend elegantly into the natural surroundings.

The ‘sheepfold’ next to the hotel offers spectacular views over the city from its vantage point high above the rooftops of Reutlingen. The hotel’s timber framing with expansive glazing, modern, light and airy rooms, and a terrace offering panoramic views complement the hotel’s high quality ambience, which is further enhanced by the extensive use of natural materials throughout its interior.

The Achalm. Hotel is equipped with the KNX system from JUNG. The corridors, lobby and conference rooms are all controlled via the KNX system. Conference room functions, such as lighting, blinds, and heating or air-conditioning systems, can be controlled centrally using the KNX Facility Colour Touch Panel IP.

The lobby and spa are fitted with push-button sensors in the classic design of the LS 990 range in white. The sensors are also used to operate the blinds. The white of the LS 990 range emphasises the interior design of the hotel rooms, which are accessed with key card readers from JUNG. The readers also control the mains supply to the rooms by connecting the circuits and turning on the lights.

Thanks to the use of geothermal energy for heating and cooling and solar energy for hot water heating, the hotel’s energy consumption is around 50 percent lower than that required by the latest thermal insulation regulations. To ensure energy savings remain constant, the building envelope is both highly insulated and finished with triple-glazed windows.
 
Nestled in the green environs of the Swabian Jura biosphere and just a short distance to Stuttgart, the Achalm conference and family hotel offers its guests holidays of the highest calibre.
