Give Bees a Chance

Protecting the bees is a cause that we believe in very strongly. And to commit ourselves to this cause, ARCOTEL established an initiative called Give Bees a Chance. Since its launch in 2015, a small idea has since grown into an effective campaign that year after year provides financial assistance to bee conservation projects large and small in Germany and Austria to directly benefit the preservation of bee populations.

Small steps, big changes. That’s the idea behind the initiative. And that’s also how this campaign has continued to grow.

You can do your part to help – just as many of our guests have already contributed their share as well. On a stay of two nights or more, you can choose to decline the housekeeping services for your room. The money saved will be used as a donation to help save the bees.

A big THANK YOU to everyone for pitching in!

Give Bees a Chance: the project

What is behind the ARCOTEL Hotels initiative Give Bees a Chance? ARCOTEL owner Dr. Renate Wimmer tells us about the idea behind the project and the organisations that we help in their endeavours to protect the bees. From organic beekeepers and school projects to the creation of new habitat spaces for wild bees, bee conservation is varied and diverse!
