Sustainability at Kärntnerhof

We think about tomorrow

Sustainable holidays

The Kärntnerhof is committed to preserving the uniqueness of the environment and the high quality of life for future generations. Further promoting an environmental conscious management with a minimum of three innovations per year is a core guiding principle of the Kärntnerhof.

We appreciate recruiting local people as Kärntnerhof employees and provide them further training and education which is an indispensable precondition for working in a sustainability-driven hotel business.

Preserve the original

Our guests treasure and appreciate the unadulterated landscape of the Nockberge Biosphere Park, the tasty regional products, and the fresh potable Kirchheim water. Guests are spoilt for choice with delicious and vital dishes prepared with produce sourced from own farming or local suppliers. Our efforts were even distinguished with the AMA Gastro quality seal!

As part of our commitment, we invested in a hydroelectric power station enabling us to partly generate our own energy. We heat with regional timber (district heating) and possess our own water spring. Wherever possible, energy-saving devices such as lamps, technical appliances or shower heads are used throughout the hotel. The outstanding living comfort of our rooms and suites is achieved with recycable materials, high-quality fabrics to be enjoyed with a good conscience.

If you want to avoid cleaning your room during your holiday for the sake of the environment, please let the reception know. As a thank you for each day without service, we donate a tree to the farmers in the region to support the reforestation after the past wind damage.

Eco-friendly across the Nockberge

Since the winter season 2015/16, Kärntnerhof hotel guests are offered our hotel BMW I3 as a budget-friendly alternative for trips in the region. For this reason, we have installed two electric car charging points in the hotel car park. If you want to charge your car, please ask at the reception for a chip, which saves the amount of energy during charging. Cost: € 0.50/kWh


Your digital information system

Since summer 2015, ‘Guestfriend‘ provides guests with all important information for their stay by means of a ready-to-use app downloaded to their mobile devices. This way we save valuable resources, and you have all news about the Kärnternhof on hand, no matter where you are!
