At present, Austria’s borders remain open to most European countries again. The same rules for entry as before the coronavirus crisis are in force for individuals from certain countries with the right to freedom of travel. These individuals do not need to undergo a 14-day quarantine period or present evidence of a negative COVID-19 test.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming our guests again!
