-Sustainability and environmental protection-

Sun & Wood

Why your stay with us is sustainable and environmentally friendly

In this day and age, the focus on sustainability is not only for the benefit of the environment and future genera4ons, but also a clearer compe44ve advantage. The use of new technologies in energy genera4on not only protects the environment but also reduces the cost of energy procurement. The bottom line is that this also benefits our guests – in lower prices for our services. It’s a win-win situation for you and our environment.

Photovoltaic system

At Hotel Schaller’s Tannenhof and its Golden LokDown restaurant, energy for electricity is obtained directly from the sun. The roof is completely covered with solar tiles. 138 tiles are mounted on an area of around 111m2 – not on top of the roof tiles as in previous installations, but directly as solar tiles. It’s no longer necessary to line to roof edge with Eternit, aluminum or stone slabs.

The approximate total output is 18.5 kWp. An additional purchase of energy is no longer necessary.

Pellet heating

Another highlight in terms of sustainability is the pellet hea4ng system that is used in Hotel Schaller’s Tannenhof. Pellet stoves provide the energy for heating the building – no environmentally harmful fossil fuels are used.

Our pellets are obtained directly from our local partner in Zermatt, Matterhorn Pellet AG, which produces the pellets locally. There are no long journeys thereby reducing transport costs and protecting the environment. A special process is used to produce the pellets, which means that the pellets are free of binding agents, corn starch or chemicals. In addition to these strong advantages, local wood recycling is also supported and recycling processes are optimized.

Make an environmentally friendly choice when you book. Together we can make it possible to preserve our planet for the next generations.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
