THE STARS

“From hand to mouth, may be taken quite literally at the fruit picking tour, in the herb garden or when out in the wilds of nature. Whether berries or herbs, we taste and cook whatever comes into our hands!”

Sustainable – for as long as we can remember


At Stern, we live sustainably. Not just since it became trendy, but for generations.


I’m often asked why and when we decided to go the sustainable route. I usually have to smile a little and say that I didn’t have any choice. The Stern has always worked sustainably, otherwise we wouldn’t have been around for so long. For generations, we have been economical with energy consumption, conscious about food, in harmony with nature, friendly with guests, obliging with employees, and collegial with locals. People have looked after each other and taken responsibility for their actions. These remain the basic pillars of sustainability today.

In the past it was commonplace. Today, in a world of prosperity and abundance, it has somehow become something special. In the past, people didn’t talk about it, they just did it. Today, it is referred to as corporate social responsibility and expensive concepts are developed for things that should actually be done as a matter of course.

Our Stern philosophy, “I take care of you. You take care of me.” has been followed here for generations, right up to today and will continue on into the future. But we don’t want to shout it from the rooftops, instead we want to quietly continue in this way, unspectacularly and as a matter of course, incorporating this motto into everything we do here.
