Ban on tourist accommodation up to and including February 28th 2021 (?):

In order to contain the coronavirus infections, the Federal Ministry of Health has announced to close our operations for tourist accommodation by ordinance up to and including at least February 28th, 2021. As usual, regulations come way after announcements, so we are not certain on what will happen next. We hope that after the "lockdown" the number of infections will decrease further and that we will soon be able to welcome guests again.

We also want to point out that so far (as of middle of January 2020) there has not been a single confirmed infection of a guest in an accommodation establishment in the entire Wilder Kaiser region.

Of course, we support all measures that help to contain this global epidemic. Please do your part too: Keep your distance even on vacation, avoid close contact outside of your immediate household and wear a mask indoors.

If we all help together and work together hard, then we can get through this challenge well!

 

 

Quarantine obligation:

On December 19, 2020, a new regulation came into force for entry into Austria. This means that a quarantine of at least 5 days is mandatory when entering from most countries in the world. After these 5 days at the earliest, you can exempt yourself from the quarantine obligation with a negative corona test. This provision does not apply to Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Norway and a few other countries only.

This rule applies until March 31, 2021. This provision was to be evaluated in the course of the first week of January and a decision was said to be taken on the need to extend the regulation beyond January 10, 2021. More detailed information is still not available.

 

 

As of 01.01.2020, we are heating with 100% biogas:

In order to further reduce our ecological footprint, as of 01/01/2020 we have converted our entire gas supply to 100% biogas from local production. The gas is mainly obtained from food waste and in wastewater treatment.

We have already obtained our electricity from 100% hydropower. With the switch to biogas, all of the energy used in the Hubenhof will come from renewable and environmentally friendly sources.

 

Free use of all public transport with the Wilder Kaiser Guest Card:

Since May 2019, the use of all public buses in the region, travelling to Kufstein, Wörgl, St. Johann i.T. and Kitzbühel is included in your Wilder Kaiser Guest Card!

We can send you the free guest card via e-mail even before your arrival. All you need to do is to fill out the online check-in form. We can then send you the access link to your e-mail address and you can show your card to the bus driver on your mobile phone.

This way you can save money and protect the environment!

 

Certification of our efforts for sustainable tourism:

We are proud to announce that the Hubenhof is the first accommodation in the area of ​​the WilderKaiser Tourism Association to receive the Austrian Ecolabel and the EU Ecolabel.

These two certificates are the visible proof of our efforts to make our accommodation environmentally friendly, which we have already started with the general renovation of the house. Among others, these efforts are:

  • The use of ecologically friendly and low-emission construction materials in the renovation.
  • Various energy and water saving measures.
  • The use of an environmentally friendly cleaning system.
  • The provision of environmentally friendly consumables such as soap, detergents etc.
  • Conscious purchase and purchase of regional or fairly produced and fairly traded organic products.
  • Efficient waste separation.
  • ...and much more

We hope to make a difference with our efforts so that our children and grandchildren can still enjoy the fantastic nature of our region.
