_Vollwertbäckerei Hauber / Bakery

_quality passion

For more than 85 years, the Hauber bakery has been a household name in our town.
It is already the third generation in which the baker's craft is continued day by day and above all with a lot of passion. More than 40 years ago the bakery was converted to wholefood products by Hansi Hauber. Today, his daughter Heidi Hauber, who took over her parents' business at the age of only 23, runs the family business.

To be able to pass on the "full value of bread" to our guests was the premise when selecting the bakery for our Hotel Stadt Kufstein. The fact that we are also allowed to quote the addition BIO in addition to the full value is another pleasing aspect.

With the "Ur-Saat-Dreikornbrot" the bread basket at the breakfast table is stocked with a bread made from organically grown rye, barley and oats. Natural sourdough, freshly ground spices and natural rock salt are the other components of the organically produced food. The bread has been around for over 40 years. That's when father Hans specialized in wholefood products. Handmade, of course.

The rating "valuable in terms of health" is accompanied by sustainability. Because in the Hauber bakery, attention is paid not only to the health compatibility of the products, but above all to environmental, economic and social compatibility in the food system. Whether Ur-Saat-Dreikornbrot, Ur-Saat-Dinkelbrot, Ur-Saat-Dinkelbiskotten, Mischbrot, Gassenhauer, Zeller- or Schwabenländer-Brot - in addition to the best bread ingredients, the sustainable aspects are always included.

Hotel guest tip
Due to the processing with natural sourdough, the bread stays fresh for a particularly long time and is suitable to take home with you on your trip. This way, the memories of your stay at Hotel Stadt Kufstein - your temporary home - stay alive with every bite! You can purchase the bread at the bakery, just around the hotel corner.

_Keilhof natürlich.echt / naturally.real

Quality. Sustainability. Honesty.

Since 1996, the Keilhof family has stood for organic quality with eggs and dairy products.
Passion for the craft. Expertise and freshness without compromise.
We have chosen the products of the family-run organic farm in Söll out of the Wilder Kaiser region. Because we value quality, sustainability and honesty.

The organically certified, valuable, regional products of the more than 450 hens as well as the raw milk of the 10 dairy cows, which feel comfortable on an area of 9 hectares of grassland with daily exercise, ensure consistently best quality all year round.      

Vorarlberg spelt and wheat semolina from Austrian arable farming, together with eggs from Söller's hens, raw milk from the farm's cows and spring water, are the basic qualitative ingredients of both the original spelt ribbon noodles and the wheat spirelli.
Packed in cellulose foil made of wood. Sensational WanderEI egg liqueur - with milk and eggs from our own farm. And with alcohol from a local schnapps sommelier. Pure Tyrolean regionality. The wild growing elder is the name giver of the elderflower syrup "Wilder Holler". Hand-picked, spring water from the region, high-quality lemons and sugar are the ingredients. The taste: unique.

Hotel guest tip
The farm shop "Keilschrank" is open 7 days / 24 hours for self-service.
Allow yourself a piece of quality, sustainability and honesty. Treat yourself to an organic product directly from the farm. Just as you have come to know it in our Hotel Stadt Kufstein.

Hotel guest secret tip
In this self-service shop there is a cpboard with a surprise compartment that contains homemade products that change seasonally on a regular basis.

_Dinzler

Freshly roasted organic quality with a sustainable taste.

It is well known that coffee does not grow on trees in our country. But it is also well known that, in a global comparison, more people still prefer coffee as a beverage over tea. However, with both beverages, nutritional awareness is increasingly coming to the foreground with more mindfulness and a focus on organic quality and sustainability.

And it is precisely for this reason that the DINZLER coffee roasting company has become our partner for the coffee consumption of our hotel guests.
Because already in the morning, coffee drinkers love the wonderful aroma of freshly ground beans as much as the caffeine kick that follows.

In the cup of organic coffee, the aromas of earthy, nutty and sweet from the blend of organically grown Arabica and organic Robusta coffee beans are combined in the excellent organic coffee variety Super Max. The wet processing method of the coffee cherry immediately after harvest followed by on-site drying is responsible for the consistently high quality of the coffee. The refinement is based on the long-term drum roasting process on site at the DINZLER coffee roastery. Thus, the organic coffee creation Super Max scores not only with strong, balanced aromas of fine almond and nut notes, but also shines with sweetness and velvety to complete the pleasure when prepared in a fully automatic coffee machine.

When pleasant roasted aromas remind us of roasted almonds in the fragrance, and bittersweet aromas and fine notes of grapes and nuts dominate the taste, then it is the organic coffee composition Peru that leaves a wonderfully holistic coffee experience on the palate.
Fruity, nutty, chocolaty and low in acidity are the attributes of the organic coffee Peru, which offer a balanced taste experience when drunk as an espresso.
Here, too, the organically grown coffee cherries undergo wet processing with on-site drying after the hand-picked harvest - the very highest coffee quality is guaranteed. The local roasting masters are responsible for harmony and deliciousness. Organic coffee Peru - nominated for Coffee of the Year 2023.

The fact that both organic coffee varieties have the certificate of controlled organic cultivation is documented by the ÖKO control body DE-ÖKO-006.

Climate-neutral roasting and delivery
These are two key aspects of our decision in favor of PRO DINZLER KAFFEE. Personally and on site, we were able to convince ourselves of the company's philosophy, according to which sustainability and climate protection are not marketing terms. At DINZLER, "sustainable" is considered commonplace and the prudent treatment of people and the environment is taken for granted. The natural gas-powered drum roasting plant now produces CO2 neutrally. The social commitment extends beyond the company's own premises to the people in the coffee-growing countries, with support for sustainable projects including reforestation in the Brazilian rainforest. The certification label "climate neutral roasted" [100% green power] is not only a distinction for the roastery's mindful use of resources, but also represents a helpful consumer orientation for us and our hotel guests.

The DINZLER coffee roasting plant uses resource-conserving packaging in the sense of the circular economy.
Thus, coffee packaging consists of a 100% recyclable PE film, which is either directly processed into new products or into regranulate via the dual collection system. The EVOH coating of the coffee packaging is environmentally friendly, recyclable and has excellent barrier properties. With the shipping service provider DHL GoGreen, the coffee is delivered via the green address in a climate-neutral manner with attention to sustainable fuels in e-delivery vehicles.

Values that connect
DINZLER takes responsibility for natural, sustainable coffee cultivation and fair cooperation with coffee farmers in the countries of origin. This is achieved on the one hand through direct contact with small plantations, and on the other hand through long-term binding cooperations. Coffee from people for people - direct and fair.

_environmentally conscious cleanliness & hygiene.

Whether you return to the HOME FOR TIME after a buzzy business meeting or an eventful active day in the surrounding mountains and lakes, make yourself comfortable in the wellness oasis or work out again in the fitness room - at some point there comes a time when you look forward to showering and going to bed. And to ensure that these very personal moments meet the high textile demands of our hotel guests for flattering bathrobes and towels, but also for the very finest bed linen, we also pay attention to a sustainable and environmentally friendly textile service with quality management, as offered by the company
Stangelmayer.

Certified sustainability & tested quality
evidenced by seals of approval for quality services and processes, for prudent environmental and energy management in accordance with ISO 14001, Stangelmayer, the full-service textile provider, is thus recognized for efficient use of energy and raw materials, as well as for waste minimization. The official recognition for sustainable energy management with the obligation to pursue and exploit potential savings in the future is documented by the ISO 50001 test standard.
The ISO 9001 test certificate stands for quality management at Stangelmayer.
The RAL quality mark 992 not only certifies proper laundry care and high quality in all care processes; it is considered a high distinction and textile care feature in a leading quality assurance system.

Sharing Economy
Sharing makes it possible to order textiles in line with demand and thus in an environmentally friendly way, while at the same time ensuring that resources are used sparingly. High-quality materials optimize the use of resources while reducing waste. We use only top quality products and services from the textile company Stangelmayer for the benefit and health of our hotel guests.

Hygiene and cleanliness
the non plus ultra of our house in general and in particular with sustainable textile care. This is ensured by innovative technologies and automation-supported processes such as water treatment, heat recovery, detergent dosing precisely matched to the degree of soiling, and proven UV-C technology.
Hygienically pure on the basis of the highest textile care and hygiene standards in accordance with the specifications of the Robert Koch Institute, including the laundry processes listed there - nothing else comes close to our discerning hotel guests in the laundry wellness area.

Sustainable and environmentally friendly logistics
Short distances and route optimization to minimize travel distances with reduced fuel consumption in the pick-up and drop-off service are environmentally conscious measures at Stangelmayer. The HOTEL STADT KUFSTEIN supports this with intelligent systems for hygienic laundry storage and sorting as well as in the area of receiving and returning textiles on a weekly basis.

_Gasteiner kristallklar

Water from a special spring

The name GaSTEINer already contains the origin. The well of the water lies in the depths of the high alpine mountains of the Hohe Tauern. A water from the protected environment of a national park makes it unique. On its way through the mountains, over hill and dale, it absorbs minerals, trace elements and geological carbonic acid, making it at the same time one of the purest mineral waters in the world.

The uncompromising quality assurance according to the highest hygienic standards stands as a guarantee for one of the highest quality mineral waters in the world.

Gasteiner mineral water is a so-called near-water beverage. This is because the path from the source to the bottle is a short one, from the mountain to the operating plant at Gasteiner Erlengrund.

When deciding on this water, which greets you as a hotel guest in a glass bottle upon arrival at your room, the sustainability aspect was again a key feature for us. Primary production, reusable glass bottles with return as reusable containers as well as recycling of the metal closures as part of waste management.   

The value chain includes the efficient use of water and energy resources. Spring conservation and protection have top priority for the two independent springs, with the agricultural land in the spring area being used extensively only. The "crystal spring" supplies the mineral water for the Gasteiner brand. The second spring exclusively serves contract fillers.

The purity requirement is firmly anchored in various steps such as the full analysis to be carried out every five years, the microbiological examination required for each batch, the extended inspection of the wells to be carried out on a quarterly basis, the pesticide control to be carried out every six months, and the sensory inspection for odor, taste, and CO2 content to be carried out every hour.
The source analysis is thus an integral part for the product quality in the processing procedures of the natural, crystal clear spring water from Gastein.   

The Gasteiner company has set itself 1.7 liters as a benchmark for the sustainable use of the valuable resource water. In order to achieve the target and, above all, to maintain the target of around 1.67 liters of specific water consumption, efficient use must be made of a general reduction in water in the area of the washing facilities. The increase in wastewater quality through reduced caustic use with the best possible caustic filtration, as well as wastewater pretreatment for reuse and the optimization of pump use are the daily challenges. 

The sustainable development of the company also goes back to the resource-conserving use of energy. Electricity for the entire company is obtained exclusively from renewable energy - 100% green electricity from hydropower. Environmentally friendly gas is responsible for the heat supply. The carbonic acid comes from natural deposits in the Pannonian thermal region, so that no fossil fuels are consumed in the extraction of the carbonic acid.  

Hotel guest tip
When you take a sip of Gasteiner Kristallklar from the mineral water glass bottle, remember that in addition to quenching your thirst, we also offer you added value with added value.
