Yes, your winter holidays can also be sustainable! They even have to be sustainable, because we want to make sure that it is possible for us and our guests to enjoy the wonderful natural landscape of the Alps also in the future.
That´s why nature conservation, the climate neutrality and sustainability are the first priorities in the SalzburgerLand.
From arrival to ski shuttle
Your journey starts back home, because of the well- developed rail offers. ÖBB (federal Austrian railway) offers several daily connections to the SalzburgerLand every day. Once arrived, the hotel´s own shuttle services take you directly from the railway station to your holiday accommodation. When arrived in your accommodation you don´t need an own vehicle, because of the free ski busses which are driving almost everywhere near your front door.
Many hotels in the city and in the province of Salzburg have been awarded the Austrian eco-label. It´s obvious that for the “Bioparadies” hosts in SalzburgerLand organic and sustainability are main priorities.
Sustainable fun on the slopes
A winter holiday without skiing is unimaginable for many. But Salzburg´s cable cars are pioneers in climate protection and energy efficiency. The “Schmittenhöhe” in Zell am See- Kaprun and the “Rauriser Hochalmbahn”, for example are considered pioneers in terms of the environmental policy. The “Rauriser Hochalmbahn” produces a hundred percent electricity from hydropower.
And by the way, you don´t have to worry about the artificial snow in the SalzburgerLand nowadays. Because of the state-of-the-art snow making techniques, the water comes from storage lakes on the mountain, and the snow returns to the nature in form of meltwater. In fact, we don´t have to use any chemicals therefor.
