The South Tyrolean Real Quality in the Mountains seal is awarded to those mountain huts and Alpine inns that match the high, authentic Alpine quality standards that also utilise locally sourced ingredients. The inns and huts bearing the Real Quality in the Mountains seal voluntary subject themselves to an internal audit to determine if they meet the pre-established criteria.
This self-certified points system helps to maintain high standards overseen by the individual mountain huts management. This also has the function of improving and broadening the range of products and services offered at the mountain huts. For clients, the Real Quality in the Mountains award serves as a guarantee of authenticity and quality of the products & services at the mountain inns in South Tyrol.

The Real Quality in the Mountains app is freely available from the Apple Store or Google Play. It contains all the necessary information about the mountain inns that have met this standard, as well as hiking tips and some traditional recipes to try at home.
