Respect the COVID-19 Restrictions and Still Enjoy the Beauty of Alpbach

 „The mountains are calling and I must go“

John Muir

Your Hotel Alpbacherhof****s is the ideal place for a healthy and nature enhanced holiday.  Blessed with local award winning „Crystal Waters“, pure mountain air and the commendation „Klima Bündniss“, you will feel enriched and enhanced from all that surrounds you.

Even under the current circumstances, our summer has been filled with sunny days, happy guests and the warm hospitality of our house.

With thanks to all who respected the situation and our Team who is regularly tested, everybody under our roof remains fit, healthy and content.

Please note the following conditions before travelling to Austria

At the boarder/airport you will be required to show your „2-G Status PLUS“ with official proof that you are either vaccinated or within the 6 month recovery period and either the 3rd vaccination (“booster”) or an actual PCR-test (valid 72 hours).

„2-G Geimpft oder Genesen“ is the Austrian prerequisite.

  • Recovery period no longer than 6 months after infection
  • Vaccinated (from 1st day having received your 2nd vaccination)

Children from the age of 12 years need proof of their first vaccination and a negative official PCR Test within the offically required 72 hour time limit.

This test has to be repeated during their stay every 2nd day.  The local Spar offers this service. Please follow this link for further information.

Children from the ages of 6-12 years must produce a one-time negative Antigen-Test at check-in, again within the 24 hour restriction time limit.

NEW: Holiday-Ninja Pass for children between 12 and 15. 

The requirement for the passport is serial testing. This means that at least 3 tests must be carried out within 5 days, at least 2 of which must be PCR tests.

Provided that a consistently valid test certificate with PCR and/or antigen test is available within these 5 days and is certified, defines equality with the 2G status, including days 6 and 7 without further test certificates.

This allows visitors to Austria to enjoy accommodation, restaurants, leisure facilites and the use of cable cars.

The validity period is 48 hours for antigen tests and 72 hours for PCR tests. The start of the Holiday Ninja Pass does not have to coincide with the holiday week. Two 7-day cycles may be necessary for one holiday week. Please download your pass here.
