The Zirmerhof is nestled amongst the Gruppo di Tessa Nature Park with its 3,000 m high peaks and the Mediterranean Merano region. Nowhere else in South Tyrol do you find these two opposite so close to each other.

Yes, the climate also goes on holiday with us… Here, in one of the 32 Vitalpina Hotels, which recently became the first hotel cooperation ever to join the Climate Neutrality Alliance: zero emissions, for a carefree holiday with a clear conscience.

We at the Vitalpina Hotels have decided as one to join the Climate Neutrality Alliance in 2021. We are therefore the first hotel cooperative venture to commit to a calculation of its own carbon footprint and thus to become as climate-neutral as possible.

Various factors will be taken into account, such as the consumption of detergents in our laundries, the number of our service vehicles and the distances they drive, our water and electricity consumption and the number of overnight stays and meals provided to our guests and staff. The result will provide us with an exact figure in tonnes of the CO2 emissions produced by ourselves and our guests.

The three-year climate neutrality plan provides for set-off measures that will be invested in the climate projects of the Swiss non-profit foundation “myclimate” for the benefit of drinking water treatment in Uganda, communal reforestation in Nicaragua and mangrove afforestation and women’s rights in Myanmar.
