"What we do today decides what the world will look like tomorrow."
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
Since 2001 the Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region has been paying particular attention to sustainability, and it is now one of the most treasured tourist destinations in Austria. It is a true natural paradise with crystal-clear glacial streams and historic trade routes, ibexes and marmots, emeralds and thousand-year-old Swiss stone pines. In recent years, many projects and initiatives have already been implemented to promote sustainable tourism development. For example, the Nationalpark Sommercard also includes public transport. Then there is the Green Spirit package on the Hohe Tauern Panorama Trail, which markets initiatives for a car-free holiday. The National Park Rangers, the ambassadors of the region, host informative adventure tours for National Park guests and visitors.
The accommodations with the Austrian Ecolabel in the holiday region National Park Hohe Tauern stand out for their efforts to promote environmentally friendly practices and establish sustainable standards in their operations.
