Eco Seal for Tourism

The eco-conscious guest demands quality  

- not just in accommodation amenities, but also when it comes to food & board. As a bearer of the Austrian Eco Seal and the European Eco Label, we live up to this important responsibility.

In the Rupertus kitchen, foods from organic farms with species-appropriate farming methods are a top priority. We also do our best to purchase seasonal products from regional suppliers.

The symbolism of the eco seal

The graphic design of the Austrian Eco Seal bears the unmistakable signature of its creator, Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The logo symbolizes the major elements of ecology: earth, water, nature and air.

The Salzburg Environmental Service also awarded us the "Salzburg Environmental Leaf" for all of our activities pertaining to trash separation and energy use.
