Sustainabilty is in our roots

Sustainability has been a part of our history from the beginning 280, years ago. And today, sustainability still remains a part of who we are in many respects.

Since the Hotel Mondschein's complete renovation in 2011, we have embraced a comprehensive ecological concept. As a result, our guests' environmental footprint is 80% smaller than at a conventional four-star hotel - and we have not comprimised anything in terms of qualitz and comfort. With your holiday, you contribute to a cleaner environment (2 people staying at our Hotel for a week saves the equivalent of the CO2 that a car emits when driving for nearly 2,000 km). And you also get to experience first-hand how wonderful it can be to live in an environmentally responsible way.

Special Prize of the EU Ecolabel

Hotel Mondschein was honored in the area of sustainable tourism in the European alps as part of a climate protection competition. Tourism Minister, Ms. Köstinger, and the German Environmental Minister, Ms. Schulze, presented Mondschein Hotel operator, Markus Kegele, with the special award of the European Environmental Prize in the Hofburg in Innsbruck. Hotel Mondschein is honored and excited to move even further in this direction!

Sustainability and Enjoyment at Hotel Mondschein

When it comes to environmental friendliness and sustainability, our Hotel counts as one of the best practice examples in Austria. Beginning with the food we serve made with high quality regional products all the way to the ecologically friendly interior design of our rooms where traditional Tyrolean loden, felt, and oak is used to create an excellent climate in each of the rooms.

Hotel Mondschein is the proof that if you lead a conciously sustainable life, you don't have to sacrifice comfort or become an environmental zealot. The opposite is true! It is much more about awareness of the things that matter and responsible enjoyment. And our house has been guaranteeing enjoyment for generations. The combination of sustainability, quality, and enjoyment is the Mondschein way - to build a bridge to the future.
