Rooted in History
The early days of tourism – when guests came 'to summer in the country’ – marked the first real interactions between city dwellers and our rural population. Much has changed since then. But what remains is an opportunity for people from different walks of life to meet and learn from each other. Those who live in our region recognise that progress and tradition can be mutually enriching – allowing us to maintain our history while adapting to an evolving world.
The KCC seeks to strike this balance by integrating environmental sustainability into high-end cultural events, and by combining elements of a traditional farming lifestyle with contemporary interior designs. Our aim is to connect the urban with the alpine, tradition with modernity, in an entirely new way.
Social Responsibility and Environmental Sustainability
To us at the KCC, respecting the world around us is the continuation of an age-old way of life.
Long before social responsibility became an established concept, those who lived in the harsh environment of our mountains saw themselves as links in a chain: their lives and earthly possessions were to be managed in such a way as to support the generations to come.Every decision had to take into account the needs of others, and promote the welfare of all. This is the very definition of social responsibility – and one of the reasons we have entered into a long-term partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute Austria.
