Happy Faces at the Goldener Berg

Familie Pfefferkorn and the golden team

Daniela Pfefferkorn and her passions
Host

Daniela Pfefferkorn has been running the Goldener Berg since 1991 and does so with passion, dedication, and love, always with the big picture in mind, and yet conscious of every detail. Encounters with people and animals from all over the world are at the focus. There is room to get to know people, feel great, and make lovely memories. Relaxed, personal, individual, and easy.

Daniela Pfefferkorn considers how she lives.

And she likes to share this with her guests.

With rooms free of any electro-smog, feather-soft beds, unbelievably delicious meals, Daniela Pfefferkorn has made it her goal to do something beneficial for the body, soul, and spirit of her guests staying at the Goldener Berg, returning them back to their everyday lives wonderfully refreshed and invigored by the power of nature.

There is also something else though that is dear to the heart of your active host: From as early as she can remember, she has felt a special connection with nature and the people and animals around her. Her path has led her again and again to shamans, trainers, scientists, dieticians, sports scientists, holistic doctors, the media, and very special people.

„I was able to learn so much about life, the bigger picture, and about myself.“

As an animal and human energician, she applies her knowledge in helping people and animals in whatever ways she can.

People from nations all over the world come to the Arlberg region to experience adventure, gather new knowledge, and to work with and for guests. These are the faces of those who do:

Sustainability

An important issue for our Hotel in Arlberg

At home in the mountains. Natural. Archaic. With both feet firmly on the ground.

We are very conscious of our good fortune to be able to call one of the most beautiful places on earth our home. Majestic mountain peaks surround us, offering protection, mother nature gives us new gifts every day; lush green meadows, ice cold mountain streams, fresh mountain air. In winter a thick layer of snow covers Oberlech, just like a winter fairytale.

We have made it our goal to live together with (instead of just from) nature and share this indescribable beauty with our guests. We often rethink our concepts and devise more sustainable solutions. We are very proud of what we have achieved already.

Local suppliers

We purchase our ingredients from local organic farmers, and serve these at our popular breakfast buffet and in our 4 gourmet restaurants. It's lovely to know the people behind the products, to visit the cows grazing on the meadows and to put vegetables fresh from harvest into our shopping basket. What's more, we source from local companies wherever possible. We endeavour to support families who work sensitively with nature and consider the environment.

Oberlech am Arlberg

Oberlech is car-free in winter. Leave your vehicle in the valley and enjoy the wonderful peaceful atmosphere in Oberlech. On the one hand every kilometre that is not driven is kind to the environment, and on the other hand it is very convenient for guests not to have to worry about parking. To stem the level of traffic throughout the year, guests are transported free of charge by bus.

Internal business measures at the Goldener Berg

We are committed to sourcing our energy in an environmentally way. We use solar energy and thanks to a centralised biomass heating plant, we are able to remain oil-free. In separating our rubbish, we take care to be thorough, and our staff receive special training in this aspect. Our water comes from the Schwarzbach spring in Zugertal and the reservoir in St Anton provides us with hydroelectric electricity.

Natural products in our wellness area

In the Alpine Spa, solely natural products are used. The hay and moor mud are locally sourced, and the hotel’s own “almstern” cosmetic line is based on local spring water, Edelweiß extracts, and the garnet gemstone.

Arlberg nature seal of approval

We don't wish to boast, but we do wish to lead the way as a good example, and show that everyone can play their part when it comes to protecting the environment. We are very happy to have been awarded the Arlberg nature seal of approval.
