Pedal Power!

Denmark is well-known to be a very eco-friendly country, where bicycles rule and Mother Nature is revered. Looking for a place to stay that lives up to your green hopes? ‘Touris-ponsibles’, welcome to the world’s greenest hotel.

Certified Green Key building, and EU Green Building, awarded for being the most innovative eco-friendly construction, and member of the UN Global Compact, please stand up ladies and gentlemen for … The Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers!

Opened in 2010, the 366-room hotel in the center of the city receives all of its energy through renewable and sustainable sources: solar panels and a groundwater-based cooling and heating system, LED flat screens, and biodegradable shampoo bottles are some of the innovative features that make it such an eco-friendly place to stay.

And guests are also encouraged to surf on the green vague, or rather pedal on it! Want to get fit and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time? The Danish hotel offers free meels for pedal power.

Two pedaling bikes connected to generators allow guests to produce electricity, and any person that generates at least 10 watt hours will be given meal vouchers worth up to $36 (26 euros; £23).

If successful, the electric bicycle meal programme will be extended to all Crowne Plaza hotels in the UK.

So on your bikes!
