design trends in THE ALPS
The Alps not only provide a mood-boosting combination of summer green and winter blue space, but they also offer the aesthetic pleasure of architectural masterpieces where sustainability goes hand in hand with wellness.

Whether it is the Miramonti Boutique Hotel with its strong connection to nature or the chalets and villas at PRIESTEREGG Premium ECO Resort, all built with natural materials such as stone and old recycled wood only, the Alps reflect design trends and provide the best ways to unwind after work.

For gourmets, a new wave of chefs sprinkled across the Alps have cultivated and maintained an unconditional love for nature. Inspired to use ancient ingredients in new ways they are galvanising one another, sending a wave of madly inventive cuisine across the Alps.
At Klösterle in Lech, Austria, every meal is inspired by the culinary richness of the Austrian Alps. The pantry is filled with regional ingredients from producers who share their demand for quality and respect for nature, and serve up what the surrounding nature offers.
While at AlpINN in Bruneck, South Tyrol, a young team of chefs prepares culinary delicacies according to Norbert Niederkofler’s sustainable philosophy “Cook the Mountain” and through using all parts of the ingredients. Spring-filtered water refreshes and wines from the Alps tickle one’s palate.
Between castles and gardens, spas and yodelling, alpine cowbells and breathtaking mountain views, the Alps are extraordinary even when you’re not skiing.
