Stanglwirt's green values
When it comes to luxury and comfort, nothing is left to chance at the Stanglwirt. Every alteration, extension and new building project is carried out in accordance with the Stanglwirt's eco-friendly ethos and meets the highest sustainability standards. Instead of steel ceilings, for instance, we only use wooden ceilings. All the timber bricks are retained with lime mortar and not cement, we only use solid wood furniture and every sleeping area is protected against the influence of electromagnetic fields.
In parallel with building ecologically to a high standard, which is what makes the Stanglwirt an eco-hotel, we also aspire to ultimate quality in our food, getting the bulk of all our foodstuffs from our own eco-farm which covers more than 100 hectares. The size of the hotel makes it impossible to produce everything we need ourselves, of course, and we put our trust in a number of regional, quality partners. Most of our fresh meat and meat products, fish, milk products and bread come from our own in-house production.
