Sustainability Concept

SUSTAINABLE TOURISM - EVERYBODY WINS!

Our family-run, ultra-comfortable ★★★superior hotel in Haus, surrounded by beautiful scenery, lies only a 3-minute walk from the town center and just 7 km from Schladming. We are right next to the Schlad­ming-Tauern gondola on the Hauser Kaibling, carrying you up to magical pistes in winter as well as glorious hikes and mountaineering adventures in summer.

Environment and sustainability - As an ecologically committed business, as hoteliers and parents, we take our responsibility for the environment very seriously, making every effort to hand down those precious natural resources and a beautiful, natural and healthy environment to future generations.

Certificate from the Austrian government

SUSTAINABLE TOURISM - EVERYBODY WINS!

If you take a sustainable approach to your holiday business, you endeavor to impact nature and the environment as little as possible, take into consideration the cultural and social aspects of your home region, thereby enhancing the opportunities for experiences that are even more intense and more authentic. And thus meeting the needs of travelers and locals alike.

Because we also want to communicate our environmental achievements more forcefully to the outside world, we strive to meet the stringent requirements of the Austrian Eco Seal for Lodging Establishments, constantly improving in the course of that ongoing process.

The Austrian Eco Seal

THE AUSTRIAN ECO SEAL

... is the highest state recognition given to eco-conscious tourism businesses. Our establishment is required to meet stringent requirements in many areas, subject to independent inspection. Through those measures, we make a valuable contribution towards an environment that will continue to thrive in the future, while hoping to offer our guests an absolutely enjoyable and comfortable stay with us.

By complying with the criteria of the Austrian Eco Seal for Tourism, we keep the environmental impact resulting from the three phases of the service life cycle (purchasing, provision and disposal) to an absolute minimum.

EATING WITH A CLEAR CONSCIENCE THANKS TO THE AMA Gastro SEAL

ENJOYMENT Made in Austria!

More and more consumers ask themselves the question as to where the food on their plate comes from. A trend that is also clearly noticeable in the restaurant business. The AMA Gastro Seal has been around for 10 years now, guaranteeing transparent labeling of meat, dairy products, eggs, potatoes, fruit, vegetables, wild game and freshwater fish on menus. You can clearly taste the freshness and variety of the regional products of certified origin that we prepare for you every day!

OUR EFFORTS TO REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT:

  • It is very important for us to show our guests how important environmental protection is in our daily business.
  • We try to use energy and water efficiently, and give preference to renewable energy sources. 
  • We use 100% eco power, certified under the Austrian Eco Seal.
  • Our heating energy is sourced from a regional biomass heating plant.
  • We make gentle use of natural resources and, as a "Genuss-Wirt", are committed to using products from our region. We use seasonal foods and drinks from the region as well as products from organic manufacturers.
  • Naturally, we also have our own ecological lawn mowers - our sheep!
  • Our culinary offer has also been given a great boost thanks to the great idea of ALMKULINARIK by 4-toque chef Richard Rauch, who collaborates with local cooks in the region. GOURMET HIKING DAYS: 33-year-old star chef Richard Rauch creates new dishes for mountain huts in the region. On our culinary excursions, we visit one or two of those huts, sampling the likes of the Dachstein Burger, Steirer­kas Dumplings and more.
  • MUSHROOM SAFARI AND COOKING COURSE: Chef Andy Marrer cooks his favorite mushroom dish together with you. Also includes a Mushroom Safari on the Hauser Kaibling and in Gumpental, a walk along the mushroom theme path on the Hochwurzen, Dachstein Glacier and Skywalk, the Ice Palace and suspension footbridge, as well as the "Stairway to Nothingness".
  • We collect fresh herbs for the kitchen as well as our organic sauna.
  • By consciously purchasing regional products, we do our best to reduce our environmental impact, follow strict trash-separation policies and recycle correctly.
  • We use washing and cleaning products sparingly, also ensuring that they are biodegradable in order to reduce water pollution.
  • Our employees have regular opportunities to participate in training programs and become actively involved in developing our environmental program.
  • We have utilized the textile services of Salesianer (certified under the Eco Seal) for many years.
  • We also make it possible for our guests to help us implement our eco program. We make bikes, E-bikes and E-cars available to help reduce CO2 emissions and fine particulates in the air. Needless to say, our electric recharging stations are powered with clean energy. 
  • The holiday region encompassing Schladming-Dachstein, Ramsau am Dachstein and Filzmoos offers all current and aspiring E-bike riders an E-bike network of 8 rental stations and 22 recharging/battery-swap stations. Surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery, you will be able to travel up to 200 kilometers and roughly 5000 vertical meters on rental bikes.
  • Effective immediately, we once again have 5 ultra-modern E-Bikes available to borrow right here at the hotel
  • Through our partner Sport Hauser Kaibling, you have an easy, convenient way to rent high-quality E-bikes or take part in guided E-bike tours: E-bikes for children and adults, E-bikes for the road and terrain, helmets, children's seats, guided E-biking. Our guests receive a 20% discount.
  • Whether you wish to take a walk through our green high valleys with your family or follow one of the numerous hikes leading to some of the region's abundant water features – the youngsters can look forward to some truly grand adventures during their visit to Schladming-Dachstein: especially since the free Kids Sommer­card - in addition to the services for adults - also includes holiday activities intended especially for children and families. Other exciting opportunities await in our variety-packed weekly children's program, during which there's never any shortage of fun, games, action and sport.
  • Avoidance of polluting and hazardous materials during construction and renovation work as well as use of regional building and interior design materials.
  • Avoidance of long transportation distances by using regional and seasonal foods. 
  • Cooperation with local producers
  • Purchase of products that are eco-certified. 
  • Increased customer satisfaction through high service quality.
