Sustainable and useful

You will convene in one of the most beautiful regions of Europe with one of the highest living standards. This fact is both a privilege we enjoy and a responsibility we must attend to. In everything we do, we want to help pass on this quality of life to future generations.

Feldkirch is Austria’s most energy-efficient city and has already won the European Energy Award in Gold twice. The processes in the Montforthaus are also optimized for sustainability, cooling and heating work with groundwater, our gastronomy serves regional food and an excellent connection to the public transport makes a low-emissions journey to the Montforthaus possible.

Particularly worth mentioning: No new space was developed, since the new Montforthaus could be built entirely on the grounds of the old building.

Our search for energy efficiency is ceaseless: the passenger lifts generate electricity when descending, and a photovoltaic system converts the sun’s rays into energy. Our use of an eco-friendly groundwater pump for heat exchange and a new electric bicycle and electric car loading station round off our environmental bona fides.

The building complies with the energy efficiency class A.

The technical and ecological intelligence of the new Montforthaus apparent to visitors. Monitors in the foyer show in real time how much electricity the Montfortaus is currently generating, how the cold or heat is supplied and when the buses arrive and depart at the Montforthaus and the trains at the Feldkirch train Station.
