Collaboration: Romantik Hotels and Tesla Motors to provide hotel charging points for electric cars

Romantik Hotels & Restaurants are supporting electric vehicles. Around 20 hotels in Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain are currently planning to offer guests the facility to charge their Tesla vehicles at a "Tesla Wall Connector". Hotels like Romantik Hotel Benen-Diken-Hof on the island of Sylt are even replacing their entire fleet of cars with Tesla vehicles. And Tesla drivers can already charge their cars at Romantik Hotel auf der Wartburg. "Tesla drivers will soon be able to travel the length and breadth of Germany and other European countries without having to worry about power. The next Romantik Hotel will always be in range," says Thomas Edelkamp, the cooperative's chairman. Since the hotel locations will be displayed in the vehicles' navigation system, guests will also be able to find the quickest route to Romantik. The hotel cooperative plans to expand the network of Tesla charging stations at its hotels throughout Europe in collaboration with the American car manufacturer.

This will make the hotels part of the fast-growing network of locations in the Tesla Destination Charging programme. Tesla works with hotels, resorts and restaurants all over the world, helping them offer Tesla Wall Connectors for guests so that they can charge their Tesla cars. In one hour, the Tesla Wall Connector can deliver enough power to cover up to 100 km.

"The over 200 Romantik Hotels in ten European countries have always stood for authentic local roots, future awareness and sustainability," says Edelkamp. "Our collaboration with Tesla emphasises once again our corporate responsibility for a wholesome environment."
