Keep what’s precious
A respect for nature is inherent to all mountain peoples. Sustainability therefore guides our thoughts and actions, and we do everything to ensure that our paradise will remain healthy for many generations to come.
SUSTAINABILITY AT THE TANN - A HOLIDAY NEAR BOLZANO IN SOUTH TYROL
Bubbles added by our own fair hands: our mineral water
In the area of outstanding natural beauty on the Rittner Horn a multitude of springs bubble up. And our water comes from there too. Just recently we have begun to carbonate the excellent natural spring water that supplies our entire hotel in-house and serve it in our attractive Tann bottles. One good thing about this is the reduced transport miles and lower CO2emissions. We are delighted to be able to make this contribution to protecting nature and our environment.
Freshly picked: our ingredients
Our head chef, Barbara, has one basic rule that delights gourmets. “Take the best from South Tyrol - products and ingredients, that come fresh from here, are sustainably produced and have an incomparably delicious flavour.” When it comes to wild herbs, fruits of the forest and flowers, the journey to the kitchen and onto your plate is especially short - as they grow in the Tann’s herb garden, not far from the vegetable garden. They couldn’t be fresher.
Tastefully selected: our partners
We owe the excellent reputation of our gourmet kitchen not least to the farmers of the Rittner and the extraordinary quality of their produce. Our butter, for example, comes from Franz Hauser in Gissmann, the honey from Plattnerhof farm, the fresh yoghurt from Erschbaumerhof farm and the apple juice from Hoterhof farm. And not forgetting, of course, the farms on which the famously tender Rittner beef is reared. Close your eyes and enjoy!
Well fed: our natural heating
The pleasant warmth at the Tann is achieved completely in harmony with nature. This is because when it comes to energy generation, the Tann emphasizes environmental sustainability. The fuel for our modern and low-emission wood chip heating system comes from sustainably managed forests; the system is fed exclusively with wood from the Ritten. We have a favourable ecological footprint thanks to the fact that our energy is generated right here.
Away from your car: our paradise
On our sunny plateau it is possible to get everywhere that is beautiful without a car. Conveniently and in an environmentally-friendly fashion. Head to the Rittner Horn on the Rittner Railway, take the modern gondola to Bolzano, and the bus to all of Ritten’s parishes stops right in front of the Tann. We will provide you with the RittenCard which entitles you to free travel and many other benefits. In this way we can all contribute to preserving our paradise.
