Sustainability at family hotel Burgstaller
Organic farm on Lake Millstatt
The Burgstaller sustainability principle
We produce everything we can ourselves. And we purchase the things we can't produce locally and with consideration for organic and eco-friendly principles. This goes for the food we serve at the family hotel Burgstaller, for our organic agriculture, and even for heating and electricity.
Since August 2014 we have produced most of the electricity that comes from our sockets. Our hydropower station produces approx. 50 KW per hour, thereby covering 70% of our consumption. When our consumption is less, we supply bio-electricity, both for us and for our guests.
Natur everywhere you look
Everything served at the Familiengut is natural and our motto is "garden-fresh on the table". We run an ecological farm, heat the house with sustainable wood chips, and think about tomorrow - to ensure you enjoy your holiday today.
In the summer our cows love grazing on alpine herbs. During the rest of the year they prefer the autumn pastures or eating in our barn. Our horses enjoy being ridden in our beautiful surroundings. Our rabbits, guinea pigs, goats and sheep are at home near our hotel and stables.
Organic fruit, vegetables and herbs grow right outside our hotel. From apples to chestnuts, from lamb's lettuce to tomatoes, and from lovage to mint - almost everything comes from our own garden. Freshly harvested, these are the best ingredients for our traditional dishes.
Nature's bounty has to be processed. We bake delicious bread with our grains. Our bacon and sausages smoke in our smoker. And our pork and beef taste natural and pure.
With all that comes from the organic farm on Lake Millstatt, you will be provided with really good things.
