Our efforts around sustainability

Our core values of respect towards nature, sustainability and regionality ensure a healthier life style, vitality and even more joy in what we do.

Regional cycles

We reconcile our commitment to top quality with strengthening regional cycles and caring for our environment and biodiversity. We focus on our own production, seasonality, cooperation with local producers, increasingly vegetarian cuisine, as well as fair and species-appropriate products.
Pfösl's Naturküche

Pfösl’s natural cuisine

We attach great importance to high-quality, regional and seasonal products and are supported by farmers from the region, local producers and partners.
Naturabar

Natura bar

Our bar only serves drinks that contain no colourings or preservatives and thus offer all the more variety and enjoyment – delicious and unique. Cheers!
Lokale Bauern und Produzenten

Local farmers and producers

We source natural products first-hand directly from the producers, with a close eye on careful handling during their production and processing.

This is a pilot project between the tourism and farming sectors that brings all that grows here in the Eggental Valley to the table, right here in the Eggental Valley. And we’re part of it!
Gesunde Kulinarik

Healthy cuisine

Our cuisine focuses on innovative, healthy and plant-based dishes, with a conscious, mindful selection of meat and fish, some of which is organic.
Pfösl’s Permakultur-Acker

Pfösl’s permaculture

In our permaculture garden we grow an impressive selection of natural and tasty vegetables, cultivate old and sometimes forgotten plants, and nurture some very special rarities.

Energy

We want to make a concrete contribution to climate protection and have set ourselves the major goal of reducing our energy consumption and increasing our energy autonomy.
Natürlich heizen

Natural heating

We obtain all the heat we need for our hot water, heating, pool and wellness facilities from a nearby wood processing firm with a biomass heating plant.
Grüner Strom

Green electricity

Anything that our own photovoltaic system cannot produce is provided as 100% green electricity through South Tyrolean hydropower.
Salz statt Chlor

Salt not chlorine

We disinfect our pools with salt solution, which is not only better for the environment but also for the skin, eyes and mucous membranes.
Energie-Rückgewinnung

Energy recovery

Our new compound cooling system makes use of heat recovery and environmentally friendly refrigerant, minimising water consumption and optimising energy and heat utilisation.
Gebäudesteuerung

Building control

Our digital building control system allows us to view and adjust temperatures at any time, while immediately recognising and rectifying faults and anomalies.
Wasserspar-Armaturen

Water-saving taps

Our water-saving taps not only mean water savings of up to 40%, but also reduce the energy needed for water treatment and the associated CO2 emissions.

Mobility

We encourage and make it easier for employees and guests to reach our hotel in a climate-friendly way and to move around without a car. We also strive to find the best and most efficient solutions in terms of the supply chain in order to continuously reduce our upstream emissions.

Elektro-Mobilität

Electric mobility

We encourage low-emission mobility: we have installed several charging stations for electric cars and are an official Tesla partner, including a charging service.

Recycling

We pursue the goal of avoiding waste at source and, guided by the principles of the circular economy, we are constantly increasing the proportion of "waste" that we recycle/recover.

The shampoos, body and hand washes that we place in the rooms are in solid form, require no packaging, are 100% natural and handmade in South Tyrol.

The finest mountain spring water – still or sparkling – filtered and biologically purified, with every bottle sold contributing to a climate protection project with clean drinking water.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Reduce, reuse, recycle

The best rubbish is that which does not occur. Our overriding principle is to avoid waste; it is otherwise recycled and correctly separated.
Recycling

Recycling

Waste is carefully and meticulously separated throughout our establishment, then reintroduced into the recycling system.
Long-Life

Long-life

We pay close attention to environmental compatibility when purchasing new devices and consumables and we consciously choose higher-quality, long-life products.
Kein Plastik

Plastic-free

For many years now we have been avoiding plastic throughout our hotel whenever possible: from kitchen purchases to the shampoos, body and hand washes placed in the rooms.

Living space

At the Pfösl, beauty is understood as an aesthetic experience. We are inspired by nature, its cycles and our history when designing our structure as well as the interior and exterior areas.
Lebensraum

Habitats

It is a delight to live the annual cycle in natural surroundings, finding that everything we need is in fact always there.

The power of herbs

Over 50 medicinal and garden herbs and numerous flowers grow in Brigitte’s flowerbeds around the hotel, and are used in the kitchen, in herbal workshops, in teas and for smoking foodstuffs.
