The organic hotel near Meran: theiner’s garten

Your organic hotel near Meran

What makes a hotel an organic hotel? Casual luxury and comfort, gourmet indulgence, rooms and suites that meet the highest organic construction standards with noise insulation and no electronic smog. The most important factor is the sustainable enjoyment of the power of nature in all its forms, scents, and aromas.

theiner’s garten’s certifications

Protecting nature and its treasures is more than just empty words here at theiner’s garten: It’s our life philosophy. The certifications that we have received spur us on to continue our efforts.

ClimaHotel certification

As the first certified ClimaHotel, theiner’s garten guarantees the services of a 4-star S hotel together with a new, exclusive comfort: maximum relaxation with a minimal ecological footprint. For each guest we have an average consumption of approx. 5kg of CO2 per night. In a conventional hotel, the value is approx. 30–50kg. ClimaHotel theiner’s garten stands out for its intelligent use of resources and a lifestyle that is in harmony with nature. We embrace local tradition and culture, always putting quality and services at the forefront.

ClimaHost 2019

theiner’s garten was named the most climate-friendly hotel in the Alps in April 2019. ClimaHost is a competition awarding outstanding climate protection and energy efficiency measures in the hotel and gastronomy industries. The award was presented by German Federal Minister for the Environment Svenja Schulze and Austrian Federal Minister for Sustainability and Tourism Elisabeth Köstinger on the eve of the 15th Alpine Conference, held in the Hofburg in Innsbruck.

Jury’s special prize, Mobility Award 2019

The project “Soft tourism with theiner’s garten” impressed the jury of the Mobility Award 2019. Our goal: To make guests aware of sustainable mobility in a creative, innovative way. As well as the hotel advertising and promoting the use of bikes and public transport during holidays in South Tyrol, each guest receives a “ClimaCube” on departure. This is an award that makes it clear how many CO2 emissions have been saved in comparison with a stay in a conventional hotel. The South Tyrolean Mobility Award was introduced on the recommendation of the South Tyrolean Parliament and was awarded for the third time in 2019.

Recommended by GEO SAISON magazine 2022

The renowned GEO SAISON magazine recommends theiner’s garten as an especially sustainable hotel and praises the implementation of the Demeter concept (translated from the German): “They call themselves a natural refuge, and that says almost everything you need to know about this organic hotel in Gargazon, between Bolzano and Meran: Because nature is the be all and end all here at one of the most climate-friendly hotels in the Alps. It was constructed using ecological methods and primarily with locally sourced stone pine, spruce, and larch. The furniture is made of untreated solid wood, certain walls of natural clay, towels and bed linen of organic cotton. The hotel’s peach trees are cultivated biodynamically and – like the herbs and plants in the farm-to-table garden – according to the lunar calendar. That means you know right away that you’re in good hands when you yourself become a peach, grape, apple, or pear as a guest – and have a treatment programme recommended accordingly. Hectic peaches, for example, head straight for a stone-pine relaxation bath and forest bathing. And naturally, at “theiner’s garten” (and that doesn’t just refer to the garden, but the entire hotel), the only thing that radiates is the happiness of the guests. This is a place that is, to a great extent, free of electronic smog, and offers stunning views over Val dell’Adige/Etschtal.”

Climate positive

We’re proud that we’re one of the first businesses in South Tyrol to be awarded the “climate positive” certification. We do all we can to work as sustainably as possible and have made it our mission to extensively reduce our CO2 emissions and to offset any emissions generated despite our measures by supporting climate-protection projects. That is our contribution to a better world.
