For nature and the countryside Sustainability and climate protection at Hotel am Reiterkogel
The environment is our most valuable possession. From it we draw the beauty of our mountains and forests, our local rivers and lakes, and thus lay the most important foundation stones for our tourism economy.
With this in mind, as we remodeled our hotel in 2013 we gave a lot of thought to using building materials and electrical technology that made a positive contribution to preservation of the natural landscapes in Glemmtal.
The measures we implemented included special insolation installed throughout our walls, ceilings and roof. During the renovation process, all of the doors and windows of our hotel were replaced and are now triple-glazed. All rooms, foyers, the restaurant, the bar area and wellness center were equipped with long-life LED lighting systems.
Our guests also appreciate the sustainability concept. The wall at the head of the beds in all of our suites and junior suites was wainscoted in pine. The positive effects of pine on heart rate, and thus the body’s improved ability to regenerate, are already well known.
Our hotel has been officially certified by the Austrian government and other public agencies as cutting back on 193 tons of CO2 emissions that would otherwise have negatively impacted Glemmtal Valley .
