Security-measures in times of COVID-19
Enjoy your stay with us to the fullest and be pampered by our team of design & wellness Hotel Alpenhof ****s in the centre of Flachau. In order to secure your safety during your stay with us, we are curious about safety measures in order to avoid new infections with COVID-19. In our hotel, you can find hand disinfection dispensers.

Your safety is important to us as well as our employee’s safety.

A few rules are necessary in order to avoid infections. Therefore, we ask our guests to obey to following policies:

The "2-G" rule is currently in effect in Austria. FFP2 masks are mandatory in many areas. To keep locals and visitors safe, the following measures are in place:

  • For hotels, restaurants, leisure centres, gyms, cultural institutions (cinemas, theatres etc.), Christmas markets, ski lifts/cable cars and body-related services (such as hairdressers) proof of full vaccination (2 jabs) / recovery is mandatory (children under the age of 12 are exempt). Please find more information here.
  • 2-dose-vaccinations are valid for 270 days after the second dose. After that, a booster jab is required, which is also valid for 270 days. Attention: The 1-dose vaccine by Johnson & Johnson is only valid until 3 January 2022; afterwards a booster jab is required.
  • FFP2 masks are required in all public areas in enclosed spaces as well as in cable cars. In restaurants/cafés/inns, you have to wear an FFP2 mask when not seated at your table. In all types of accommodation, FFP2 masks are mandatory in public enclosed spaces.
  • Restaurants/cafés/inns have a curfew at 10 PM. Bars and clubs remain closed for the time being. Après-ski is not possible.

Rules for children and teenagers

  • Children under 12 years are currently exempt from the „2-G” rule
  • Teenagers (12 or over and born on or after 1 September 2006) who are not fully vaccinated or have not recovered from Covid, can obtain "2-G" status with the so-called "Holiday Ninja Pass". Regular testing is needed as well as documenting the results in the pass. Please check out the Holiday Ninja Pass FAQ and download the English version of the pass here.
