Travel advice for your safe vacation in BRUCK FUSCH | GROSSGLOCKNER at a glance.
Of course, the current situation hurts us in tourism and we would have wished for a different start to the winter season. With the lockdown and the simultaneously announced end on December 12, there is a clear perspective for our tourism businesses. We expect to be able to reopen our hotels and restaurants, ski huts and stores to guests from 13 December - and we are already looking forward to this.
The "curfew" will be in effect all day (0-24). Leaving one's own private living area and staying outside one's own private living area is now generally only permitted for specific purposes (grocery shopping, walk...)
Entry bans for business premises:
Food service establishments, lodging establishments, recreational and cultural facilities, and sports facilities may generally no longer be entered (with a few exceptions).
Commercial establishments may also no longer be entered, with a few exceptions that serve to meet daily needs. Therefore, the following in particular remain open:
Pharmacies, grocery stores, drugstores and drugstores, sale of medical products and sanitary articles, remedies and aids, health and nursing services, services for people with disabilities, sale of pet food, gas stations, banks, car repair shops, etc.
Extension of FFP2 mask obligation: FFP2 mask obligation applies again in all closed rooms.
Attendance at gatherings or events is also generally prohibited (with a few exceptions such as funerals).
Vaccination offensive and mandatory vaccination:
A general nationwide vaccination requirement is to apply no later than February 1, 2022. A draft law will be prepared as soon as possible in this regard.
All information about testing opportunities in our region can be found here:
The 2G rule (Vaccinated/Genese) will be introduced as of 13.12. (Exception: at the workplace the 3G rule will remain in place):
FFP2 masks mandatory for all persons in all trade, libraries and museums.
In the fight against the Corona pandemic, the federal government has announced a new phased plan that went into effect on September 15, 2021. Intensive care unit (ICU) bed occupancy will replace 7-day incidence as the leading indicator for situation assessment. Reaching a certain occupancy level will be linked to certain further measures. Based on current figures, the federal government has brought forward Stage 5.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming guests to SalzburgerLand again as of December 13. From this date, the 2G rule in tourism, which was already decided at the beginning of November, will apply.
The travel warning from Germany - should it remain in effect until then - will therefore have no direct impact on vaccinated and recovered persons. This is because the 2G rule is hardly any different from the regulations that apply to German holidaymakers on their return journey. For vaccinated and recovered persons, a winter vacation continues to be possible without restrictions.
Level 1-5: Wearing an FFP2 mask in enclosed or coverable means of transport (gondolas, cabins, coverable chairlifts) and in enclosed rooms of the associated stations.
From the start of the season November 15, 2021, introduction of the 2G rule:
+ 2G proof to be checked during ticket sales
+ If ticket issuance is carried out by third parties (travel agencies, hotels, group organizers, schools, etc.), the operator complies with its control
obligation if it ensures that the control is carried out by the third party at the issuing point.
+ In the case of multi-day and season tickets, the ski passes will only be activated for the period of validity of the respective proof.
+ If multi-day and season tickets were already sold before the entry into force of this ordinance, the control obligation is in any case fulfilled if, for
example, the card is blocked and the 2G proof is checked in the course of the renewed activation.
For the obligation to transport in case of non-compliance with the prescribed measures, please refer to the circular of the supreme cableway authority.
