Sustainability & Environmental Awareness
For generations there has been an ecological cycle of give-and-take in the alpine regions, but the modern society demands more and more resources of nature. In our “borderless” society “green economy” is often just lip service, however, we have gradually expanded the Almhof in recent years to become an “ecological hotel”.
Small hydropower plant
One step to fulfil our responsibility to nature and to our children is the use of environmentally friendly energy from a small hydroelectric power plant which we have built with a capacity of 200 kWh.
For hot water preparation and heating we use a CO2-neutral pellet plant with a capacity of 1.200 kWh.

Reduction of food waste
Food is precious – therefore the reduction of food waste is one of our main concerns. Therefore our kitchen team has participated in the “Küchenprofi(t)” advisory programme of the ecotirol initiative.
NEW from May 2020: Refrigeration system
In May, we will build a compound refrigeration system with heat recovery. The waste heat will be fed directly into the heating of the indoor and outdoor swimming pool.
