Sustainable winter joy
That´s why nature conservation, climate neutrality and sustainability are top priorities in SalzburgerLand.
From arrival to the ski shuttle
Your journey starts back home, due to the well- developed rail network. ÖBB (the federal Austrian railway) offers several daily connections to SalzburgerLand every day. Once arrived, the hotel´s own shuttle services take you directly from the railway station to your holiday accommodation. When you´ve arrived in your accommodation you don´t need your own car, because of the many free ski busses which drive you almost everywhereand almost to 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 produce and sustainability are main priorities.
Sustainable fun on the slopes
A winter holiday without skiing is unimaginable for many. But Salzburg´s cable cars companies 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 their environmental policies. 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 SalzburgerLand nowadays. Thanks to the the state-of-the-art snow making techniques, the water comes from storage lakes on the mountain, and the snow returns to nature in the form of meltwater. This means that no chemicals need to be used in the process.
