Energy from biomass

Approx. 800 hotels and apartment buildings in the Salzburger Sportwelt are supplied with district heating from 10 regional combined heat and power plants. All the energy required is produced from 100% biomass (regional renewable raw material), which results in a saving of 12 million liters of heating oil per year.

Sustainable journey

With two international train stations in St. Johann and Radstadt, nothing stands in the way of a climate-friendly journey by train to Salzburger Sportwelt. Many hosts pick up their guests from the train station and there is a good public transport network locally. For all ski pass holders, the modern ski buses are free of charge.

Hiking bus

In summer, the hiking bus is available in the entire region for only one euro per route with the Salzburger Sportwelt Card.

GSTC – Global Sustainable Tourism Council Ausbildung

The GSTC criteria were developed with the aim of providing a general understanding of sustainable tourism. The Destination Criteria and Hotel Criteria represent the minimum of what every tourism destination and hotel should strive for. They cover four main themes: sustainable management, socio-economic impact, cultural impact and environmental impact. They can be applied to the entire tourism sector.
From all our places, 2 people from the tourism board have done the training.
