Environmental services at the Kräuterhotel Hochzillertal

We cultivate the HOCHgefühl of tomorrow

"Be the change you wish to see in the world."
Mahatma Gandhi

Commitment to sustainability? But of course!
Nature is full of wonders. It is a habitat - the only one we have. From it comes everything we need to be happy. Utilising the treasures of nature for well-being and enjoyment is not just an
ancient endeavour of mankind, but also our permanent heartfelt project and the central idea of our Hochzillertal philosophy.

The common thread...

Draw energy and enjoyment from the power of herbs in our herb hotel. Enjoy the Liebstöckl savoury taste sensations. Harvest moments filled with herbs in the relaxation area, encounter the treasures of nature at every turn while hiking. And at the end, take the cosy scent of herbs into your dreams. This is what guests appreciate and love about our holiday home.

To ensure that this remains the case tomorrow, we are highly motivated to take our commitment to sustainability and the common good to the highest level.

In all areas of our hotel, we are taking small and large steps to fulfil our ecological responsibility.

"Many small people doing many small things in many small places
can change the face of the world."

African proverb

Climate steps in the living & wellness area

Walking good paths in a highly relaxed manner

Living comfortably or conserving resources? Gladly both!
At the Kräuterhotel Hochzillertal we obtain 
energy that creates well-being from renewable sources. Our pellet heating system combines efficiency and environmental friendliness. We stand for a form of heating that is future-proof. We also use electricity from sunlight. Our holiday home is powered by photovoltaic energy. 10 % of our energy supply is covered by renewable energy sources. We are planning to expand our sustainable energy supply.

We also use eco-friendly products:

  • Refillable shampoo and soap

  • Natural ingredients in cosmetics - produced in Austria

  • Environmentally friendly cleaning agents

  • Recycling options for the guest

  • Digital services (check-in & check-out)

Kräuterhotel Hochzillertal at a glance

Small steps towards a big goal

"What we do today determines what the world will look like tomorrow."
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Mindful and respectful use of natural resources begins with considerations when shopping.
What or which product do we really need? What are the possible uses of the product? We take care to make sensible decisions with regard to the circular economy.

Our hotel stands for electricity generation through PV systems and hot water preparation through heat pumps, for the automation of light sources through motion detectors and for the complete replacement of light sources with LEDs.

By offering various working time models (e.g. free choice of the number of working days or hours per week), we can cater to the individual needs and current life situations of our employees and support them with regard to childcare times.

Our aim is to make our cleaning practices as sustainable as possible in order to minimise our impact on the environment. We use environmentally friendly cleaning supplies or do without them altogether - especially when cleaning windows. Through the targeted use of environmentally friendly alternatives, we create a hygienic and healthy atmosphere for our guests.

Our guests enjoy the option of paperless check-in and check-out. In this way, we save around 5000 sheets of A4 paper, toner and printer cartridges per year. In addition, documents relating to payroll accounting are transmitted digitally to our employees.
