Between Grundlsee and Altaussee

On the sunny side of the Ausserland

Ecologie was built on the foundation walls of a century-old stable building with great attention to detail. The location is perfect as base for hikes in the picturesque landscape of the Ausseerland, in summer as like in wintertime.

Both in construction and in operation, recycling management and the appreciative use of resources are the overriding principles. The operation with energy from the sun and wood is >90 % energy self-sufficient in real time over the course of the year.


Sustainability as the overriding principle

Our flats with pure natural materials

The 8 cosy flats for 2-5 people offer an ideal base for exploring the Ausseerland. Around the house there are several terraces and all kinds of herbs and garden delicacies to discover and nibble.

For guests arriving by public transport, there is a free transfer service for arrival and departure from Bad Aussee train station as well as free rental mountain bikes. High-speed internet, parking spaces and type 2 electric car charging stations are also available. Children under the age of 4,99 stay free of charge.



only 15 minutes walking distance

At 4.22 km², Lake Grundl is the largest lake in Styria and is drained by the Grundlseer Traun,
one of the three headwaters of the Traun.
It is fed by the Stimitz, the Zimitzbach and the Toplitz, the drainage stream of the Toplitzsee, which is located in the municipality.

The lakes's clear water is of drinking quality. The shore is mostly unobstructed and freely accessible.

Autarky concept

The Ecologie Grundlsee was designed as a self-sufficient building with an active power balance. There is a three phase emergency supply. Sustainability, ecological resource management, recycling and the use of natural, preferably local materials dominated all decisions during contruction.

The ecological perspective also plays a major role in the interior design. A mix of furniture design and targeted recycling ensures a balance of environmental awareness, user-friendliness, cost reduction and design.

Guests are consciously involved in the energy concept and can actively participate in the ecological operation of the Ecologie. A touch panel is installed in each accommodation unit on which the most important performance data can be called up at any time.

When we developed our project in 2016, our ideas were far from mainstream. From the economic point of few irrational. Today ecological and economic thoughts go hand in hand. Maybe you even take home some eco-ideas when you stay at the Ecologie.

The roots of Ecologie

The barn of Agathe Stöckl's family, built in 1973, will be developed in 2022 as "ECO-Logis" with 8 holiday flats with a total of 20 beds and 10 beds in a shared accommodation room.

The flats will be individually furnished and adapted to the needs of young couples, small groups, families.

Wood plays a supporting role as the central building material.

Round elements and active lighting design ensure a natural living climate.
