Mountains, valleys, forests, lakes, rivers – Tirol is blessed with wonderful natural jewels. In order to preserve them, more and more hotels in the region are committing themselves to sustainable tourism. Leading the way are Tirol's officially certified sustainable accommodation providers.
Fresh produce from the farm next door, stylish rooms and suites with lots of regional craftswork, breathtaking landscapes every where you look – Tirol is a place where sustainability has been part of daily life long before it became a buzzword. More and more accommodation providers here are keen to provide the best possible holiday experience in harmony not only with nature but also the local community. That means, for example, using local produce, reducing emissions and creating jobs. Guests also benefit from this win-win situation – delicious food, energy-efficient spas and saunas, stylish rooms with natural materials make for an enjoyable holiday experience. Many of the hotels and other accommodation options listed below offer an environmentally-friendly shuttle service from nearby airsports and railway stations. Some have their own charging stations for electric cars, while almost all can be reached using public transport. Recycling, solar energy, biogas and non-chemical cleaning products also help keep things as green as possible. The reward for all that hard work is the Austrian Environment Certificate, an accreditation awarded by the Austrian government to businesses which meet strict standards on sustainability.
