Immerse yourself in our Hofgut sustainability philosophy and learn about our principles for sustainable development:

Sustainable flats

The Hofgut Apartments offer exclusive furnishings with high-quality solid wood floors and wooden wall panels. Our commitment to ecological responsibility is reflected in the selection of sustainable building materials, whereby we prefer to work with companies from the region. The interior design combines comfort and environmental friendliness, while we consistently focus on avoiding plastic. We also attach great importance to recycling and waste separation in order to contribute to a sustainable lifestyle.

Energy generation through renewable energy

Our heat is supplied via the hotel’s own local heating network. Two wood chip heating systems and a pellet heating system have been combined to form a heating ring and, depending on the heat requirement, the systems can be ramped up in stages to 220 kW, 150 kW and 120 kW. This enables extremely efficient utilisation of wood biomass and also guarantees a high level of reliability. The material is sourced exclusively from local or regional suppliers with short delivery routes.

The existing PV system on the house roofs with 97.58 kwp will be supplemented in spring 2024 with a 98.2 kWp open-space system. Around 40% of the Hofgut electricity requirements will therefore be covered by its own production. The remaining electricity requirements will be supplied by Salzburg AG. The electricity mix is made up of 100% renewable energy such as hydropower (88.22), wind energy (8.09), solar energy (1.49) and other green energy.

The wellness area naturally has a particularly high heating requirement. In addition to excellent insulation, we rely on intensive heat recovery from the ventilation systems. More than 85% of the heat used is extracted from the exhaust air and transferred to the fresh air.

From the region to your plate

Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner, our restaurant vaMoos follows a strictly regional approach. With a network of over 20 regional producers, we are supplied with fresh, high-quality ingredients every week – from vegetables to meat, milk, cheese, bread, eggs, flour, fish and much more. This allows you to experience the flavours of Salzburger Land. This makes vaMoos the place to go for anyone who wants to enjoy a different and, above all, regional flavour. Incidentally, the dishes at vaMoos are flavoured with herbs from the Hofgut herb garden.

Our contribution to waste avoidance

In addition to separating waste, we attach great importance to avoiding plastic. Even at breakfast, we consistently avoid disposable packaging. Our guests enjoy homemade jams, for example, which are not only delicious but also come without unnecessary packaging material.

To encourage our guests to avoid plastic, compostable coffee capsules and water carafes are provided in all apartments. Our drinking water comes from our own wells.

Sustainable shopping in the Hofgut Shop

We also focus on regionality in the Hofgut Shop. In addition to food from Pongau and fresh dishes from our restaurant vaMoos for a high-quality, quick meal in your apartment, you will also find homemade handicrafts from talented partners and small businesses from the region. As a partner of “Too Good To Go”, we avoid waste and reduce CO2 emissions every day.

Natural diversity at the Hofgut

The Hofgut garden not only serve as an oasis of well-being for our guests, but also as a natural habitat for bumblebees, butterflies and numerous other inhabitants of nature. With our bee meadow, we create a sustainable source of food for them.
