Sustainability, environmental protection and a clean world worth living in for future generations - this is what counts for the Übergossene Alm Resort. In 2011, this commitment was rewarded with the Eco Label for Tourism Businesses from the Ministry for Environmental Affairs. The hotel will continue to develop the concept of sustainability. It is important to create a symbiosis between ecological, business and social issues. We are using organic regional products, reducing our water consumption and improving waste separation procedures. 

The Übergossene Alm Resort has made a major contribution towards COneutral heating.

All areas of the hotel can now be heated with this organic source of warmth.
