ibex fairstay Platinum: the guarantee of a sustainable experience
The Hotel Belvedere in Grindelwald shows how tradition and progress can cohabit happily in one and the same property. A family-run hotel since 1907, the Belvedere can look back on many years of commitment to social and ecological sustainability. Wood and groundwater are used for sustainable heating and cooling in this hotel, which has been awarded the ibex fairstay Platinum Label. Groundwater is used in the air conditioning system, which therefore offers the possibility of heat recovery.
Particular attention is paid to waste separation here. All materials are meticulously separated and disposed of, and no unnecessary materials whatsoever are used. For example: disposable plastic items are consistently avoided throughout the property.
The Belvedere offers five places for trainees alongside its 50 full-time positions. By accommodating more than the average number of apprentices, the hotel aims to encourage and develop local employees. The company also employs many local part-time staff, and it supports workplace reintegration.
«1910 Gourmet by Hausers» is a fine dining venue that favours regional products and brings the flavours of the Bernese Oberland to the table. The hotel is involved in various local associations such as ‘Eigerness’, and it provides financial support for local clubs.
