Summer Season 2021 in Westendorf

The mountains are open, pretty-well everything open too. Quarantine restrictions lifted. From May 19, 2021, holidays in Austria and the Brixental are possible again! Hotels, restaurants, mountain lifts and leisure facilities are open. We look forward to seeing you in Westendorf, Tirol again soon!

Coronavirus tests will be made free for foreigners in order to boost tourism, the Austrian Tourism Minister has confirmed.

Authenticated negative Corona-19 tests are your 24hr passport to indoor areas in hotels, restaurants and bars. The „3 Gs“ entry permit scheme is working like finest-clockwork : Geimpft (Vaccinated), Getestet (Tested) or Genesen (Recovered).

Home testing kits, known in German as Wohnzimmertests, are available at local chemists and are authenticated online by QR codes that provide you with a unique, scannable quick response code (QR) direct to your mobile. Walk in testing by appointment.

 

Of course we have taken precautions and promise to do everything possible to guarantee you a safe, relaxed and carefree holiday. All hospitality staff will continue to be subject to mandatory Covid testing as has been the standard throughout 2020-21. Here you can find out which conditions currently apply, what the current situation is on site and what you can expect from us!
