Regulations for children: 

  • Children up to an age of 12 years old do not need any proof.
  • Children from the age of 12 need a proof:
    • Upon entry, 2.5G proof (vaccinated, recovered or PCR tested).
    • In certain customer areas, services close to the body, accommodation, gastronomy, sports facilities, recreational facilities, ski lifts, at events, etc. this must be a 2G proof.
  • For children and adolescents who are of compulsory school age in Austria (9 school years), the "Ninja Pass" applies. This is considered equivalent to a 2G proof. It is also valid for weekends. After completion of the ninth school year, all young people attending school in Austria must have a 2G pass. If identical tests are performed during the vacations at the defined test intervals of the school, this also counts as proof of 2G, analogous to the Ninja Pass. For children of school age who do not permanently reside in Austria, the same regulation applies as for children of school age in Austria during vacations. This includes consistently negative tests (of which at least 2 tests are PCR tests) during one calendar week.

The following certificates are considered 2G certificates:


• A recovery certificate is valid for 180 days.

• A doctor's confirmation is valid for 180 days after an infection with SARS-CoV-2 has expired. This must have been proven by molecular biology (e.g. PCR test).

• An official separation notice is also valid for 180 days.

Vaccinated: The EU-compliant vaccination certificate, the yellow vaccination pass, a vaccination card and a printout or PDF (e.g. on the mobile phone) of the data from the e-vaccination pass are valid as proof of vaccination.

What applies to people who have only received one dose of the corona vaccination (incomplete vaccination series)? For people who have received the 1st dose but not yet the 2nd dose of the corona vaccination, there is a transition period until December 6, 2021. In these cases, proof of vaccination for the 1st dose, together with a valid PCR test (72 hours), is valid 2-G evidence. A picture in the Green Pass is not possible.

We have always employed strict sanitation procedures, and we will continue to do so with special measures to keep both our guests and team safe. You can rest assured that we are doing our utmost to observe the highest cleaning standards throughout the hotel. Special attention is paid to high-touch surfaces, including door handles and areas in our public spaces. They are disinfected several times daily. Our linen and towels, as well as table cloths, are changed regularly and washed in accordance with the latest hygiene guidelines.

Every member of the team is regularly tested for Covid-19 and provided with detailed instruction on up-to-date requirements, measures and guidelines. They strictly adhere to any required safety measures and are happy to provide you with your own little safety bag at check-in, which contains your own individual hand sanitiser and more.

Should you require a doctor or need to go to the hospital during your stay with us, please talk to the reception. Our team will be happy to assist and also offer details on where to get tested.
