Alpine Pearls Association
Alpine Umbrella Brand for Soft Mobility in Tourism
The Alpine Pearls Association is a network of 28 extraordinary communities that offer carefree, yet conscious ways to enjoy holidays in environmentally friendly fashion. Like a necklace of pearls, these Alpine Pearl villages are strung across the entire Alpine area. This necklace includes melodious names, such as Arosa, Bled, and Berchtesgaden, known winter and summer sports destinations, but also quaint, lesser known resorts, such as Chamois and Mallnitz. You can find these Pearls in Germany, France, Austria, Italy, Slovenia, and Switzerland.
High Quality Standards for a Sustainable Holiday Experience
All 28 Pearls of the Alps stand together for softly mobile travelling. All of our holiday resorts meet stringent quality criteria to assure that our guests will enjoy a stress- and carefree holiday while protecting our climate and preserving the environment. Soft mobility is our main focus: Environmentally friendly recreational activities, reduced-traffic town centres and mobility guarantees with convenient transfer services are a "must" for the Pearls. You can do entirely without a car and not miss a beat!
