Sustainability and environmental considerations at the Krallerhof


The Krallerhof – it grew from a farm into one of the finest wellness and spa hotels in Salzburg County, at which environmental considerations were never neglected. The Altenberger family puts great value on acting environmentally and socially friendly. We also place great emphasis on the long-term health effects of our goods and services offered at the Krallerhof. "Guests should feel the positive effects of a wellness and spa holiday at the Krallerhof for a long time after returning home", is our credo. The sustainable approach becomes clear not only in various examples, but also with the award of the "Sterne Awards 2013" on the subject of "Sustainability".
