That is why we know their small wishes and their big ones, which has contributed not least to the fact that a holiday guest rents more than just a classic holiday home with us. We will continue to be of assistance in answering your questions and taking care of your needs. We want to keep on working, to become better and better so that we can make your holiday a unique and unforgettable experience.

Christian Sternke

As an enthusiastic sailor, his motto is: "It is not the wind, but the sails that determine the sustainable course". As early as 2013, with cooperation between FHG floating house GmbH and his own Munich-based company iSCP, he set the course for the current foundation of ELG Eco Lodges GmbH. Growing up in distant places like Brazil and Africa during his youth, he was always fascinated by water and breathtaking nature. A graduate in business administration and real estate economics, he spent several years in Portugal and Spain in the 1990s as part of a tourism area development programme funded by the European Commission and worked for many years in real estate marketing and sales of high-quality residential construction projects in Berlin and Munich and elsewhere. After another eleven years as a manager in the Bosch and Siemens Group as global purchasing manager on the international stage, he will now blow fresh wind into the sails with the founding of ELG Eco Lodges GmbH, and convey his passion for water and nature to other people.
