Environmentally Friendly Holidays: Bio Hotels in Tirol


Healthy food, sustainable design and local produce - these factors are increasingly important for many people when choosing a holiday destination. Tirol is home to a number of bio hotels with outstanding food and environmentally friendly spa facilities.

Saunas made from local larch and pine wood, natural materials such as felt and stone as decorative elements in the stylish bedrooms, and food made with locally sourced produce from organic farms – these are just three of the things that the bio hotels in Tirol have in common. Visitors who decide to spend their holidays at one of these family-run locations can look forward to high standards. Many have received the "Grüne Haube" award in recognition of their healthy food, with vegan and vegetarian dishes often available. Other environmentally friendly touches include using energy from renewable sources.

From the stylish lounge with its open fireplace to the spa area and the 41 rooms and suites, the reddish-brown tones of the larch tree accompany guests throughout the Bio-Wellnesshotel Holzleiten****. This charming hotel is located in the heart of Europe's largest protected larchwood forest, on the edge of the Mieming Plateau. Fine local materials such as loden, glass, felt and stone have been used to decorate the rooms, while the electricity is provided by renewable sources. This environmentally friendly theme continued into the kitchen, where the chefs use locally sourced produce. Those in search of total relaxation should head for the spa area with its Finnish sauna offering panoramic views, pinewood infrared sauna, heated outdoor pool and massage service. The hotel even has its own line of beauty products. And as the day draws to a close, why not treat yourself to a single malt whiskey or a classic cocktail at the hotel bar?
