Until mid February, it is high season for ball gowns in Vienna. Here, more than 450 balls take place every year. So, get your fancy evening dresses and smokings out, to dance to the strains of the waltz from through the romantic city. When getting tired, you best fall into bed at the authentic hotel Das Capri. Here, every level and room tells a different Viennese story. Considerate service, a regional breakfast and an individual flair based on the principles of sustainability is what awaits you at the centrally located Viennese hotel.

February in Milan

1-La Facciata

February is a wonderful time to visit Milan. Not only because it is Fashion Week! The best place to spend some unforgettable and sustainable days in the Italian city is the Hotel Milano Scala. The zero emission hotel is located in Milans centre, only a short walk away from sights and the luxury shopping areas of Montenapoleone and della Spiga. From the organic herb garden on the roof terrace of the hotel, the view over the city is priceless. The organic garden offers the ingredients for the traditional, regional and always delicious Italian recipes. With the hotel’s electric car, the next catwalk  is easily reached in an eco-friendly way.

March on the Maldives

March takes us to the paradisiacal Maldives. It is not exaggerated to say that on Lankanfushi Island, you will find heaven on earth: Gili Lankanfushi. Whether on your private sun deck of the luxurious villas with a view over the clear water, while swimming in the fantastic under water world or when enjoying a massage at the Meera Spa: Gili Lankanfushi is a paradise of complete relaxation. The best part? The authentic resort pays attention to responsible interaction with the fragile nature and supports sustainable and social projects.

April at Curaçao


From one paradise to the next one: Before the hurricane season starts again, April is a beautiful travel month for the Caribbean. Here you will be welcomed with an average of comfortably warm 26°degrees. Doesn’t that sound attractive? On Curaçao, the sustainably focused Morena EcoResort awaits you with carribean flair and authentic apartments made of eco-friendly, fair traded materials. Only a few minutes away from the white sandy beach, the resort with a tropical garden protects the environment by focusing on solar energy, an efficient grey water system or waste separation. By staying at Morena EcoResort, you also support social projects for the local population.

May in Southern Germany


In May, you shouldn’t miss the traditional may pole celebrations at the Berchtesgadener Land in Southern Germany. A great spectacle in breathtaking scenery! The Berghotel Rehlegg offers the perfect accommodation. Here, the day starts with a delicious breakfast from regional ingredients. The view over the surrounding mountains will make you long for a walk through nature. Luckily, great trails start directly at the hotel. After all the fresh mountain air, you will feel hungry. At the hotel’s restaurant, solely fresh, not tortured, carefully prepared meals are served. To ensure the quality of the meat, Berghotel Rehlegg keeps pigs on its own meadow according to strictly organic principles

June in Hungary


Hungary in June is beautiful…and has so much more to offer than Budapest alone! So why not exploring the scenic and authentic sides of Hungary? For example during a timeout at Irota. Here, the Irota Eco Lodge enchants with three differently designed holiday villas that have one thing in common: the focus on sustainability. The villas were built with natural local materials and are supplied with solar energy. At the garden with a nature pool, you can spend unforgettable summer days. The clou about the nature pool? A separate but interconnected basin with plants filters and cleans the water without using chemicals.
