Our range of services

We leave nothing to chance.

We leave it to the experts.

What we do can be easily summed up: We create added value for investors. What we are capable of is more difficult to express. Because we unite all aspects of a successful tourism investment under one roof. From purchase and concept to financing and revitalisation to operation and sales.

In order to meet the high standards we set for ourselves and the expectations of hotel guests and investors alike, the 12.18. Group is made up of different departments that cover each one of these aspects with their specific expertise. Together, we are single-handedly able to cover a range of services, for which our competitors have to commission, monitor and coordinate external companies.
