Pioneering organic cuisine

Clean eating with a clean conscience in Saalbach-Hinterglemm

At the Gartenhotel Theresia, our green philosophy is at the heart of everything we do. Our guests are only served dishes made from ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients. The head chef and his kitchen team ensure that these dishes not only taste delicious, but that they are also a feast for the eye. In 2002, the four-star superior Gartenhotel Theresia was the first hotel in this local region of Salzburg Land to voluntarily undergo elaborate organic certification.

The two businesses of the Brettermeier family - the Gartenhotel Theresia and the small Biohotel The Resi - are still the only organically-certified hotels in Saalbach-Hinterglemm as well as the only restaurants that are allowed to carry the BIO seal of approval from the state inspection body AUSTRIA BIO GARANTIE.

With 57% percent of arable land used for organic farming, Salzburg Land exceeds any other region in Austria and even in the EU. We are proud of this and want to share it with our guests wherever possible.

  • As fresh as can be

    At our hotel we individually source the finest produce from trusted local organic farmers.

  • Back to the roots

    We serve organic, regional, seasonal, and fair trade food and drinks whenever possible.

  • Pure taste

    Instead of artificially flavoured foods, we serve pure taste enhanced only by local herbs, fine spices, and gourmet salts and peppers.

We serve real food that makes you feel fit & healthy – taste the difference.
