Bees are the mainstay of our ecosystem. More than 80% of the native flowering plants rely on pollination. A third of global food production is dependent on bees and other insects. The economic value of bee pollination is hundreds of billions of euros worldwide. With most crops, if pollination is successful, production increases by 5 to 50 percent.
A total of six bee colonies are housed on the MAVIDA flower and herb terrace. The location between the wonderful mountains and the crystal-clear Zeller See Lake, not far from the Hohe Tauern National Park - the largest protected area in the Alps, is ideal for bees. The professional care of the bees is carried out by "Beefuture". This ensures that the bees are kept appropriately and hibernate. Guests can enjoy the honey for breakfast or buy it as a small souvenir at the reception.
Every day, tons of plastic waste is produced that pollutes our blue planet and our waters more and more. Avoiding plastic waste should therefore be an important step towards environmental protection and sustainability. A simple but all the more effective option: use regional tap water, treat it and make its surroundings a bottle free zone, instead of buying expensive water in plastic bottles, which also has to be bottled and transported for miles with polluting trucks. This is a clear plus for the CO2 footprint of each of us - and thanks to BWT a plus for a more sustainable taste experience.
