All guests have to make sure that they fulfil this requirement at the start of their holiday, i.e. that they are fully immunised or have recovered from COVID-19. Should guests travel without a valid Covid certificate, they do so at their own risk.

The hotels and accommodation have developed appropriate measures that comply with the government’s hygiene measures and distancing rules. For example, the seat spacing in dining rooms is increased if required or breakfast is often served at the table rather than with a buffet. Disinfectants and social distancing rules are often additional measures taken for your safety.

Of course, even more attention is paid to cleanliness when cleaning the rooms.

Yes, overnight stays are permitted, but the distance between people who do not live in the same household must be at least 1.5metres or the risk of infection must be minimised by other measures (e.g. room dividers).

If a guest experiences corona symptoms, the country-specific health authority will be informed immediately (e.g. in Austria via the Health Hotline 1450). The health authority will initiate the necessary procedure to determine if it is indeed COVID-19 and the source of the infection. Contact persons are identified and given instructions. These measures start when an infection is suspected. If the COVID-19 test result is negative, the measures are terminated. In general, sick guests, unless admission to hospital is medically necessary, remain in quarantine in the accommodation. The responsible medical officer will decide on a case-by-case basis whether the guest is allowed to return home.

Each hotel and accommodation handle the restaurant, including breakfast, individually, but always in compliance with the appropriate hygiene measures and regulations. For example, the seat spacing in dining rooms is increased if required or breakfast is often served at the table rather than with a buffet. Disinfectants and social distancing rules are often additional measures taken for your safety.

Please contact the hotel team on site and find out about opening times of facilities. Hygiene and distancing rules apply.

You will be informed of any fixed reservation times etc. upon your arrival at the hotel.
