Restaurant historyA Beisl is a typical Viennese, long-established, comfortable and plain inn. It is related to the Italian Trattoria and can also be roughly compared to the German Kneipe and Swiss Beiz. The classic Viennese Beisl has a spacious taproom where wine is cooled and beer tapped, dark painted wood panelling, basic tables and chairs along with traditional cuisine and a diverse crowd.

Austrian Eco-Label for Tourism Enterprises

Austrian Eco-Label for Tourism Enterprises

The Austrian Eco-Label for Tourism Enterprises was created in 1996 as a quality label attesting to environmentally conscious management and socially-minded conduct by tourism enterprises. The approved businesses are committed to maintaining the foundations of life and dedicated to the well-being of their guests, economising on operating costs in the process.
Based on an extensive list of criteria, businesses are rated on the following aspects: general management, environmental management, energy, water, waste, air, noise, office, cleaning, chemicals, hygiene, building and living, furnishings and fixtures, food, cuisine, traffic and outdoor areas, seminars and wellness.
The basic requirements are represented in the mandatory criteria and become applicable in accordance with the type of business and range of services. In addition, there are certain optional target criteria that take into account the specific business situation in greater detail, such as size, range of services, furnishings and fixtures, and location.

Environmentally oriented management saves costs: operating costs can be reduced by using energy, water and detergents rationally and avoiding waste through conscious purchasing decisions and waste-sorting.
