Visit of Theiner's Garten

On 7 November 2018 the OnTour partners had an inspiring exchange of experiences with Mr. Stefan Hütter, the owner of the Theiner's Garten hotel in Gargazon/Gargazzone (BZ). The Theiner's Garten hotel was the first tourist accommodation certified KlimaHotel and BioHotel in South Tyrol, being the result of a great motivation to create a structure with a reduced ecological footprint. Learning from such experiences is fundamental to promote sustainable forms of tourism. This is why OnTour will keep on having further best-practice exchanges in the three project regions. We will keep you updated!

OnTour on the way

We can learn a lot from sport competitions, not just for our everyday life, but also for carrying on projects with cross-border partnerships: motivation, team spirit and a good start are the main ingredients to achieve a wished goal.
These are the values of the OnTour project, which officially started on March 1st 2018 after the Kick-off meeting held in Bolzano/Bozen. All partners from Austria, such as the Regionalverband Pongau, and from Italy, such as the Ökoinstitut Südtirol/Alto Adige Cooperativa, the Free University of Bolzano and the Consortium for Tourism Promotion in the Tarvisio area, Sella Nevea and Pramollo Pass were invited to the meeting.
An optimistic start and a great opportunity to create a “sharing and exchange” atmosphere on various topics.  And now... let’s start!
