Schmallenberg, together with the holiday region Eslohe, has been recognised by the European Centre for Allergy Research Foundation (ECARF) as being allergy friendly. The region has been awarded the ECARF Seal of Quality for developing its infrastructure in line with the necessary qualifications to meet the needs of allergy sufferers.

Schmallenberg-Eslohe is the fifth holiday region in Germany, after Baabe on Ruegen, Bad Hindelang in the Allgäu, the ‘Ferienland Schwarzwald’ network (‘Holiday Region in the Black Forest’) and the North Sea Island of Borkum, to receive this distinction from ECARF. 

Astrid Völlmecke, project leader of the healthcare services centre of Kur- und Freizeit GmbH Schmallenberger Sauerland, says: “More than 45 business owners and independent professionals have implemented the quality criteria and created the conditions allowing our vacation guests with allergies to enjoy the most relaxing holiday possible. Our mild, bracing climate is an additional benefit that gives us something truly unique to offer our guests in North Rhine-Westphalia.”

Among the allergy-friendly businesses are a supermarket, two bakeries, two butcher’s shops, a jewellery shop, a café as well as holiday flats with more than 500 beds. The Hospital Kloster Grafschaft, specialised in pulmonology and allergology, and two radon galleries for respiratory diseases enhance the allergy-friendly infrastructure.

The ECARF criteria for allergy friendly municipalities were implemented over the past several months. The participating businesses adapted their operations to the special needs of allergy sufferers step by step. Now Schmallenberg-Eslohe offers allergy-friendly food in the café and accommodations that include smoke-free and pet-free rooms. These rooms are regularly cleaned with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a HEPA 13 filter. The floor surfaces are either uncarpeted or covered with a short-pile carpet. Bakers and butchers offer allergy-friendly options within their range of goods. The jewellery shop also offers titanium jewellery.

The ECARF Seal of Quality is prominently displayed on the wall of the establishment so that guests can identify the allergy-friendly businesses.
