Free electric car charging station in the Spessart near the A3 exit 64 Rohrbrunn

We provide free charging stations for all electric cars and electric bicycles (Type 2 plug and Tesla Destination Charging) using 100% green electricity supplied by Lichtblick Energie.

Our experience with electric cars

Because we do not only promote sustainability but also actively practice it, we have had an electric vehicle - a BMW i3 - in our fleet since September 2017, in addition to carbon neutral heating and green electricity from Lichtblick. The idea came with the charging station and the nice conversations we had with guests and users of the charging station. I would like to point out that the charging stations are available to everyone, not just our hotel guests. I myself have been in the situation of arriving with low range at a service station with a defective charging station, and was therefore only too happy to find a free and publicly accessible charging station in the neighboring town. We also place great emphasis on the ease of use of our charging station: you do not need to register anywhere or scan a code or the like, just hook up your car and start charging, there is even a dedicated charging cable. If you are traveling by electric vehicle and looking for a hotel, we are the perfect choice close to the A3 highway. We are happy to share our experiences with anyone planning to purchase an electric car!
