Cancellation Policy & Travel Cancellation Insurance

Start safe & without worries into your holiday...


The Austrian federal government has announced the 2 G rule for the hotel & catering industry, effective from 8.11.2021.


You will need a 2 G proof upon arrival.
2 G =  VACCINATED OR RECOVERED (up to a maximum of 6 months after the illness)

During the transitional period until approx. 08.12.2021, the 1st vaccination in combination with a PCR test also counts as 2 G.

For all guests who are vaccinated or RECOVERED and provide the appropriate proof,
there will be NO CHANGES!The proof MUST be presented at check-in.

At the moment we are unfortunately not allowed to accommodate guests without 2 G status.

No one can currently say for how long this will apply and we therefore ask
you to understand that at the moment we cannot make any further statements as to whether this will also affect a booking in January or February.

Beginning on Sunday, 14.11.2021, Germany has placed Austria on the high-risk area list.
This has no impact on VACCINATED & RECOVERED people. Meaning you do NOT HAVE TO BE IN QUARANTINE.
Please note the mandatory entry registration at

We can assure you that all our staff comply with the 2 G rule
and that the hygiene and security precautions in the hotel are monitored.
