Your eco-friendly day trip to Lünersee

Did you know that Lünersee  is Vorarlberg’s largest reservoir for power generation?

This makes the high-alpine lake more than just a great place for fishing and hiking – it makes it an investment into a more sustainable future.
Green energy and a one-of-a-kind natural paradise – we think that’s a superb combination. That’s why it’s important for us as a climate-friendly tourism region to contribute to the preservation of our natural treasures.

If you care about our environment as much as we do, you can now find out more about why we all have to join forces to actively fight climate change.
Plus, discover how to make your day trip to the Lünersee , the “pearl of the Alps”, more sustainable!

Sustainability goals:

where we’re headed

#1 reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions by 77 % by 2030 (base year 2016/17). Until now we have reduced 60 % of our CO2e-emissions.

#2  dedicated advancement of e-mobility projects

#3 continuous increase of energy efficiency



Climate change

Why are we so eager to achieve our sustainability goals? Because climate change severely affects our landscapes, our wildlife and life in general. Recent studies show us what to expect in Vorarlberg if we don’t start to take a stand:

  • a considerable rise in temperature 
  • an increase in extreme weather events, including periods of heavy rainfall and droughts
  • a decrease in the number of frost days during winter, leading to a decreased snow reliability
  • a change in landscapes and vegetation due to weather changes 

The challenge: We can only fight climate change together. The good news: You can contribute your share during a day trip to Lünersee ! Thanks to a number of sustainability measures, you can make your visit to the Lünersee region more climate-friendly.

Climate-neutrality

Climate-friendly tourism – how does it work? We think this can only be achieved with a real commitment to environmental protection and a practical plan. That’s why we have set ourselves the goal of reducing our greenhouse gas emissions by 70 per cent by 2030 (base year 2016/17). And we’re making good progress! To make up for those areas where we are yet unable to cut down our greenhouse gas emissions, we support different climate protection projects.


We also want to give you the chance to make your visit to Lünersee  climate-friendly and sustainable. Find out how you can achieve this and spend a day in tune with nature! One thing’s for sure: Our environment will thank you for it!

Energy

The Lünersee region is powered by 100 per cent green energy – thanks to regional solar power and hydropower. This makes your visit to Lünersee  more climate-friendly. What’s more, it helps us to rely less on fossil fuels. Other “clean-energy” measures include:

  • Sustainable cable care technology
    Lünersee cable car doubles as a small power station. More than one third of the power required for operating the cable car is generated by recuperation.
  • The power of water
    The pumped storage power plant at Lünersee  generates and stores green electricity – at 1970 metres above sea level. 
  • Smart energy management
    ​​​​​​​All energy flows are recorded to increase efficiency.
