„I cannot say whether things will get better if we change; what I can say is they must change if they are to get better“. Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

Our corporate concept defines our house as a modern, open to the world, value-oriented commercial enterprise assuming full social responsibility. Three aspects are vital: ecological sustainability, economic sustainability, and social sustainability.

Being the first and only sustainable event venue in Schleswig-Holstein, the MuK is committed to a conscious and gentle use of natural resources. Sustainable management is an issue close to our hearts and one that not only shapes daily procedures, but also influences future-oriented decisions.

Certifications - sustainable success

 MuK is being involved in:


Green Globe – provides certification for sustainable operations as well as management of travel and tourism companies and their related businesses based on internationally accepted criteria.

Green Globe operates under a worldwide license in more than 83 countries. The MuK was certified for the fourth time in 2015. One speciality of our concept of sustainability are our bee colonies living on the roof, providing an ideal venue and production facility for our popular MuK-honey. During 2015, more energy efficient systems were refitted and a digital signage system was installed. This enabled the MuK to proudly achieve a guideline adherence of 96 percent, having increased this result by 4 percent. The MuK is one of the most successfully recertified venues in Germany.
