Here at the Gradonna ****s Mountain Resort at 1340 m above sea level in Kals am Großglockner, we are very aware that the beautiful scenery and intact nature of the Hohe Tauern National Park where we are situated are our most valuable assets. This is why we follow a sustainable energy concept and sustainable means of construction as well as running our business in a resource-conscious way.
The Gradonna is a place where exquisite luxury meets ecological sustainability. It’s not for nothing that the Gradonna****S Mountain Resort won the Green Luxury Award in 2014, with a focus on sustainability and preserving the environment, and the accolade “Europe’s Leading Green Resort 2015”, one of the most coveted international tourism awards.
A short summary of why the Gradonna counts as one of the most sustainable hotels:
The wooden construction combines with natural stone and natural materials in the interior, and harmonises with the impressive mountain scenery, creating a unique atmosphere that mirrors nature both outside and in. Large windows bring the mountains right into the room, where you have the impressive scenery directly in view. This is a place where holidays are spent in the midst of nature.
As a sustainable wellness hotel, the Gradonna offers a range of treatments. In our cosmetics and applications, we are committed to natural cosmetics from the Tyrolean series Alpienne and the natural luxury cosmetic line Babor. Our own, Alpine cosmetic range Magdalena’s made in Tyrol is a vegan cosmetic selection from the Gradonna, combining tried and tested herbal knowledge and recipes with pharmaceutical know-how, creating a unique, high quality product that is both sustainable and regional.
Our commitment to sustainability is also evident in culinary matters. Wild and cultured herbs growing right outside the hotel are used not only in the production of our own care products, but also in our gourmet cuisine. In the hotel restaurant, the kitchen team take care to use the real thing, which means mainly using produce from the region, or Austria. In our own butcher’s, we process venison, reveal, and beef, and kitchen herbs are taken from our own garden or come from the National Park. We consciously forego the use of tablecloths in order to keep energy use and laundry to a minimum.
Regional produce is available for chalet guests to purchase from the delicatessen shop in the resort itself.
Spend holidays in amongst the Mountains of the Hohe Tauern National Park. Discover intact nature, and enjoy a holiday in Tyrol of the highest standard, with a good conscience.
