Sustainability & Nature Protection

Sustainable practices are indispensable for the future of the travel industry. In our fantastic location, surrounded by the alpine meadows, vast forests and the high peaks of the German Alps, we have developed a special relationship with nature and the environment.

We live amidst this nature and we spend a lot of time in the mountains at any season. Therefore, it is crucial for us as a local enterprise to contribute to the preservation of our environment and resources. What is good for the environment is also good for our business! We do our best to take care of the environment and treat the resources at our disposal with care. We review our operations on a regular basis to identify and implement new opportunities that would drive our sustainability commitment.
