Careful handling of natural resources is particularly important to us.
In addition to our other offers and amenities, guests can take advantage of our "Mountain GREEN SPA".
We exclusively use the eco-certified natural cosmetics range from Annemarie Börlind – the premier range of natural cosmetics - as well as its associated medical cosmetics range DadoSens (suitable for those with allergies and sensitive skin) and the eco-certified cosmetic label Marías.
We fill our hotel with energy and soul! Everyone in our hotel should experience more than just a beautiful environment. We live and work authentically and we invite our guests to join in.
The basis of our philosophy is sustainability in all areas:
We offer our guests highest quality in every aspect of our hotel. We place a great emphasis on:
We strive to provide our guests with memorable experiences and impressions that will stay with them long after they've returned home. We want our guests to use what they have experienced, learned and acquired from our hotel and the surrounding nature to benefit their everyday lives.
Exploring in and around the hotel is a pleasure in itself:
We respect the beauty and power of nature and of all creations, especially humans and animals.
Over the years, we have hosted and looked after many guests, offering comfortable warm rooms, heated pools and generous meals and buffets. As a host, we accept full responsibility for our guests and employees as well as for the nature and environment which surrounds us. It is a task and a challenge which we are happy to accept.
Organic is an important issue in the Province of Salzburg: more than half of Salzburg’s agricultural area is farmed in compliance with organic guidelines and many markets offer a wide range of fantastic organic products which are much tastier than industrially processed foods.
For this reason, we are in the fortunate position of being able to purchase a great deal of regional and seasonal produce. And this offers plenty of benefits:
This is thanks to the fact that these products can be processed and enjoyed when they are perfectly ripe.
Fair trade is another important issue which we take into account when purchasing.
Paper and screens can say whatever they like...
We have pursued a policy of voluntary certification since 2002. This means that we are subject to unannounced audits by the Austria Bio Garantie (Austria Organic Guarantee) as proven by our certification number (Hotel Theresia: 4-01113-2010). As a member of the ‘BIO AUSTRIA’ (ORGANIC AUSTRIA) association, we promise to use predominantly local organic produce.
In 2008, the Bio-Paradies Salzburger Land (Organic Paradise in the Province of Salzburg) was founded. This association is made up of organically-certified inns, restaurants, hotels and farms. As one of the four initiators of the association, we have been involved from the very outset and Mrs Brettermeier is a board member for this group of 25 committed establishments.
The GRÜNE HAUBE title, awarded to us, indicates:
Marianne Brettermeier, owner of the Hotel Johann, is also an active member of SLOW FOOD Austria, Convivum Pinzgau.
