We Care About the Environment

Our goal is to protect our environment and act sustainably wherever possible. The Austrian Ministry for Environment recognized our green actions by awarding us with the Austrian Eco Label. Environmental activities focus on efficient energy saving, waste prevention, eco-friendly buying, and ecological cleaning. Thus water-saving modules in the fittings are used, heat recycling from air-conditioning is practised, eco-friendly refill packages are bought while only fair-trade coffee and meals from predominantly regional products with a focus on sustainable cultivation are served. Furthermore, we encourage our guests and employees to take part in this important cause every day. For example, we offer all guests who arrive at our hotel by train an additional bottle of water while various digital services to reduce paper consumption are available. Last but not least, we are always striving to introduce new processes to become more sustainable every day.
