Before the stay
Planning your summer holiday
Are you planning a holiday in Tyrol? For a safe and relaxing holiday, you will find the most important answers for holiday planning and travel to Tyrol here. You will also find our special cancellation conditions and the Corona Dashboard with the latest figures on Covid-19. Please also note the current entry regulations of your home country for your return journey.
As of 19.05, persons who have been tested, vaccinated or have recovered may enter Austria without quarantine. However, people entering from abroad are still required to register online in advance. Registration is possible HERE.
General information on entry:
Decisive for whether or under which conditions entry to Austria is possible is the measure whether your home town/country is currently classified by Austria as a risk area. Austria bases its entry rules on the Corona traffic light of the EU health agency ECDC. This determines, for example, whether I have to go into quarantine in the vacation country after entering. From countries that are colored green or orange on the ECDC map, entry is to be possible without any requirements from May 19.
Your safety and health is of great concern to us. For this reason, you will find here all the latest information and rules of conduct for accommodation, gastronomy, ski areas, mobility and on-site testing. Read the most important measures at a glance below.
The most important questions & answers about your stay on site
For all areas opened on May 19, a negative Covid 19 status, is a prerequisite. That means guests must either be tested, vaccinated or recovered.
o Negative PCR test (3 days).
o Negative antigen test (2 days)
o Antigen tests for self-testing with digital recording (24h/48h, depending on data processing system).
o Self-testing on site also allows access. However, this test is only valid for this one visit and only at the facility.
o For children, school tests will also count as an entry test.
No testing is required for takeaways or vendors.
For all info on testing opportunities in the Kitzbüheler Alpen regions, please see the "On-site Testing" section.
Can be proven by means of vaccination certificate, vaccination card or printout. Partially vaccinated persons are exempt from testing from the 22nd day after initial vaccination, for a maximum of three months.
Convalescents are exempt from testing for six months from the date of convalescence. The segregation certificate or an antibody test apply.
Since 19.5. all previous proofs are valid for this, from the beginning of June then also as a certificate/QR code in the digital green passport.
Valid proofs in the sense of the "3-G rule" are: Guests are admitted if they have been vaccinated, tested or have recovered.
In lodging establishments, a negative test must be presented upon arrival:
In accommodation establishments only (without catering or services), an entry test is sufficient for the entire stay. This is the case, for example, in vacation apartments and self-catering cottages.
If catering (breakfast, other meals) or service (wellness) is offered, then gastronomy rules apply.
Proof of status, whether one is vaccinated, recovered or tested.
Indoor space of at least 20 sqm must be available per guest.
Registration obligation analogous to gastronomy.
No registration is necessary if the recreational facility is mainly outdoors (e.g. zoos and botanical gardens). Here, the FFP2 obligation, the distance rule and the 20m² rule per visitor apply.
Children up to the age of 10 are exempt from compulsory testing and therefore also from the 3-G rule. The adult accompanying person's authorisation card is valid here.

The most important questions & answers about the use of mountain railroads
No, cable cars fall under means of mass transportation and are therefore exempt from testing.
In the case of closed and coverable means of transport, only 50% of the transport capacity may be utilized, i.e. only half as many persons may be transported.
FFP2 masks are compulsory from the age of 14 for all cable car users (e.g. waiting areas, access areas, ticket office areas) as well as in during the ride.
Pay contactless when purchasing tickets if possible. You can also conveniently purchase your ticket online in advance.
Always keep a minimum distance of 2 meters from non-household persons - even when boarding and alighting. The 2-meter safety distance must be observed especially when waiting in line.
It is recommended to open the windows for good ventilation when the vehicles are closed.
The ropeway personnel regularly disinfect the ride equipment and customer areas.
