Stay over night „Climate neutral“

Travelling with a good feeling At Boutiquehotel Stadthalle our guests have been sleeping with a clear conscience for a long time. Acting sustainably in daily life is a matter of course since 2 generations. ZERO-ENERGY BALANCE The expansion of our cozy Vienna Boutiquehotel makes us very proud. Our new building is not only the perfect addition to the existing, thoughtfully renovated period town house, but it maintains a zero-energy balance as well. It means that in the course of a year our Boutiquehotel creates the same amount of energy that we require to run it. For this, we only use renewable energy sources like 130m² solar and 93m² photovoltaic panels, ground water heat pump. But that was not enough for us and we wanted that our guests are able to stay with us climate neutral. Our ecological footprint has been calculated with 163 tons per year. We will be able to compensate this amount in cooperation with the team of Zukunftswerk in the next 2 years. PROJECT WIND POWER Due to our interest in wind energy we have chosen a project in India. The certificates are extraordinary (Standard UN CER - United Nations Certified Emission Reductions). This climate protection project [...]

Zero what? Zero Waste!

5 simple tips for a zero waste lifestyle Zero Waste is a sustainable concept which got more and more attention in the past years, but what does it actually mean? The meaning of Zero Waste is just as simple as waste prevention and the Zero Waste movement boycotts the unnecessary waste production in our society: their goal is to live completly without producing waste. And that is for sure the right approach because an EU-citizen produces in average around 500 kg of waste a year - an alarming number which clearly shows: we need to do something against this excessive waste production because it damages us and our environment enormously! But isn't a life without any waste a huge effort? The answer is very clear: No, it's actually pretty easy and it can also be a lot of fun. That's why we compiled 5 tips for you to prevent producing waste in different situations and do something good for you, the society and the environment :) 1.Shop packaging-free The packaging waste which we bring home from shopping is mostly the biggest part of the waste we produce. But this is something you can change very easily: use fabric/ paper bags instead [...]

Every day is a Treeday

Treeday is the first green lifestyle guide worldwide and a social network at the same time. The idea behind this new sustainable App is motivating people to live in a more sustainable way and simplify this lifestyle. Members of the Treeday community become “Treeder” and can track the effects of their own lifestyle. What’s that in a nutshell? Treeday visualizes what you actually can’t see: the CO2 you don’t cause anymore because of your eco-friendly deeds, so called „Treeds“. For this purpose the platform translates the saved CO2 into the performance of a tree, thus the amount of carbon dioxide which are filtered by one tree a day. Thereby Treeday creates an imaginary forest for each member of the community which grows with every eco-friendly deed and is shown on a green map. A reward system within the App is expected to encourage the members to act more conscious, more sustainable. When you take the train instead of using the car to get to work for example you get a certain amount of „Treeds“ which can be redeemed with the sustainable partner companies of the green lifestyle guide. The aim of this system is to create 650 billions of virtual trees [...]

Bee humming in Vienna’s green living room: The gardening season is about to start

Staying in the middle of the vibrant city and in the nature at the same time? It’s springtime! Flowers are growing und we cannot wait to open our hotel garden in April. We take a deep breath, lean back, relax and enjoy the nature in our green oasis. Before the hotel door vibrant urban life is pulsing, but in the lush garden crickets are chirping, bees are humming and birds are singing. Do you fancy having breakfast in the garden, enjoying a coffee and a cake in the afternoon sun or relaxing with a sundowner under shady trees? And in between we discover the “green” Vienna. Maybe when strolling around the parks and gardens of the town and the Prater, the most famous area for recreation of Vienna’s people? Or what about visiting the best courtyards of the town? Green living room Back at the hotel’s garden a delicious glass of wine is already waiting for the stroller. We care about our environment and it goes without saying that we place value on the fact that our culinary delicacies are fresh, local and organic.

Five tips to go GREEN!

As an utterly green hotel it is our mission to act resource-friendly. With passive house design in our building extension, solar panels & co. our Boutiquehotel Stadthalle achieves a zero-energy-balance. However it is also quite simple to implement an eco-friendly lifestyle @home – often with small means. Thus, we present five useful tips to save energy in one’s own four walls. 1.    It’s the ventilation that matters Even if in winter it is uncomfortably cold it is important to ventilate intensively two times a day. Through it one can maintain a pleasant indoor climate without cooling down the apartment or house – that’s also the reason why you shouldn’t leave the windows tilted the whole day. And don’t forget: Turn down the heating while ventilation! 2.    The thing with the standby mode – you know… Yes, the standby mode on notebooks or TVs is quite handy – one touch of a button and everything is fine. But energy savers know that the tiny red-illuminating lamp is pretty much of an energy guzzler. So it would be better to pull the plugs from time to time or to even use plug connectors which can be switched off. 3.    Kettles for president […]
