Here we give you an overview of the current situation, when hotels will be able to open and all the measures we have taken to ensure you have a safe holiday. And we give answers to some questions you need to know now for your planning.

For your health and safety on holiday - that's what we live for! The measures for entering the Hochkönig region, Austria and also for travelling home after your well-deserved holiday are handled differently in different countries and are subject to daily changes and new measures.

In order to make your holiday planning easier, we have collected the most important and up-to-date information for you below.

Important for you: For your holiday, pay attention to the entry and exit regulations and measures in your home region. As the regulations can change at short notice, the information given is without guarantee, but has been carefully researched.

From 19 May 2021, new quarantine regulations will apply according to the ECDC map for risk areas:

  • Green/yellow/orange: free entry
  • Red: no quarantine if persons are tested, vaccinated or recovered
  • Dark red: entry only for tested, recovered or vaccinated persons and quarantine (free testing after 5 days)

This means that entry from countries with a 14-day incidence of less than 500 (equivalent to a 7-day incidence of 250) that are not virus mutation areas will be possible without quarantine.
You can find the ECDC map here.
From 1 July 2021, further relief will follow. Then nothing will stand in the way of a safe and good summer season.

The COVID-19 Entry Regulation stipulates two categories:
1. Entry from states with a low incidence of infections (Appendix A): Three means of verification of non-infection are allowed, no quarantine

These states are listed in Appendix A of the COVID-19 Entry Regulation; they include EU/EEA states as well as third countries with a low incidence of COVID-19. Every type of entry into the country is possible from these countries – including tourist travel.

2. Entry from ‘virus variant states’ (Appendix B2: PCR test and quarantine)

The opportunity to enter Austria from ‘virus variant states’ is still very restricted.

All further information including a list of Appendix A & B2 states can be found here
