Lassalle-Haus is committed to a more peaceful and just world. It offers people space to find themselves in silence and arouses a passion for more humane and sustainable action.
We are convinced,
that through a spiritual practice people become more mindful and freer in dealing with themselves and their fellow world.
that in the encounter of religions lies a chance for one world.
that dialogue is the only alternative to violence.
that a modest and considerate way of life enables a life for all.
that a conscious diet leads to a respectful use of the resources of our world.
that everyone matters.
We believe in the power of silence.
How we implement our philosophy in everyday life
It’s not just the big gestures that change the world. It is above all the small steps, constantly executed, that have a great influence. Some examples of how we integrate our philosophy into our day-to-day business.
In the middle of the day, employees and guests meet for a short meditation – a retreat, a reflection on themselves and the world. We care for the house community and have lunch together, sometimes without many words, sometimes during lively conversation. In the evening it is possible to attend the simple daily service at 5.40 pm.
“Blue Angel” standard for all stationery and printed matter: We use recycled paper with the “Blue Angel” eco-label, which places the highest demands on careful use of resources, guarantees for health and compliance with technical requirements.
The guests of the Lassalle-Haus have decided to take responsibility for value-oriented action by taking part in a course or training course. This should also be reflected in our menu. Accordingly, our cuisine is simple, varied, healthy and enjoyable and, where possible, takes into account organic, seasonal, regional and fair trade products. Vegetarian and vegan food is offered throughout the week, in addition our guests can choose meat and fish twice a week.
Instead of using the shower and shampoo products commonly used in the hotel sector in individual doses, we use refillable soap dispensers at Lassalle-Haus. Our shower products and soaps are in organic quality.
Of the 17 springs that spring from Bad Schönbrunn, we use one for ourselves and offer our guests the best spring water. The usual sources supply the Zug waterworks.
Lassalle-Haus uses 100% green electricity from hydroelectric power stations.
Our new heating system, which supplies all three buildings – Main House, Old Villa and Forrenmatt – is operated with pellets, a renewable raw material. The efficiency is over 90%.
