Sustainability at Hotel Altstadt Vienna

The Altstadt Vienna was the 1st hotel in Vienna to be awarded with the Austrian Ecolabel. And today we wear it with more pride than ever. We are committed to acting in a future-oriented manner. Not only from a strategic business point of view, but also and in particular with regard for sustainability and the conservation of our natural resources. Regional and seasonal foods or the conscious use of water, energy and waste are important and a matter of course for us.

Social and ecological sustainability is an essential part of our corporate philosophy. We want to create awareness, optimise the use of resources and minimise our ecological footprint. By eating as much organic and regional food as possible, we look after your health and that of all of us. This only makes sense if we work together. With our staff, suppliers and you, our guests. Join us! There is still a lot to do. We constantly want to improve. Share your ideas with us!
