Eco Hotels in Austria

Altstadt, Vienna -http://www.altstadt.at
An exclusive hideaway with rooms designed by architect Matteo Thun that aims to be a meeting point for artists, musicians and travellers looking for a character hotel with good service -some beautifully presented images give a good idea of what is on offer (helpful as parts of the website are German only). The hotel is part of the Umweltzeichen -the Austrian equivalent of the EU Ecolabel.
 
Aqua Dome, Tirol Therme Längenfeld -http://www.aqua-dome.at
A stunning thermal spa and wellness hotel set in the Tirollean mountains. It features a domed, glass-walled thermal spring hall with two pools and a huge waterfall -two canal pools connect to the amazing outdoor area, with the whole complex designed to blend with the mountain setting.
Schlank Schlemmer Hotel Kürschner, Kötschach-Mauthen -http://www.hotel-kuerschner.at
Wellness hotel in an old house in the Gail Valley -the hotel enjoys a tranquil location next to the forest with stunning views.

Biohotels -http://www.biohotels.info

Biolandhaus Arche, Carinthia -http://www.bio.arche.hotel.at
At an altitude of 930m in wooded countryside, this hotel certainly offers clear air. It also offers solar heated water, wholefood cuisine, a wellness suite with massage and sauna and a construction of natural materials -they will ask you to separate your rubbish. Each room has a different characteristic, ranging from a small sun trap bio loft room to the larger wooden outhouse nearby.
 
Das Park Hotel -http://www.dasparkhotel.net
Probably the most unusual place to stay featured on this site -rooms are in pods made from concrete drain pipes with "pay as you wish" system -brilliant!
 
Rogner Bad Blumau, -http://www.blumau.com
An extraordinary hotel and wellness spa in an architecturally inspiring environment -green roofs, organic forms, colourful facades and golden domes make up this amazing complex. Power, heat and energy are supplied by the two curative springs. The spa aims to touch all senses -imagine floating in the warm water, daydreaming, under canopies, on the grass-covered roof or reading in the room of silence. Features include a geomantic path, Celtic tree circle, island of flowers of love, path of the wild fruit, love trees and garden of the 4 elements. There is so much we could write about the hotel -do have a browse through their website.
 
Stadthalle, Vienna -http://www.hotelstadthalle.at
Three star boutique eco hotel in vienna, boasting solar powered hot water and green roof gardens -the hotel was the first Viennese hotel awarded with the European Eco Label. The hotel is central yet peaceful and they are proud of their gardens of lavendar and roses.
 
Stanglwirt, Kaiserweg -http://www.stanglwirt.com
Bio and energy hotel in a 250-year-old resort in the Austrian Tirol that blends eco with luxury. A great destination for families with its own Childrens Farm in a mountain setting.
