Travel information on leaving SalzburgerLand

Relaxed and carefree - just as the holiday in SalzburgerLand was, so should the journey home also be. This information can be helpful for this.

What should I consider when checking out of my accommodation?

  • If possible, use an online checkout to reduce congestion at the reception. Please check with your accommodation company directly if this option exists
  • If possible, make use of the contactless handover of keys and keycards at holiday apartments and houses
  • If possible, pay contactless with ATM/debit or credit card

Are there international travel warnings for SalzburgerLand and what does this mean for me on my return journey?

An overview of current entry restrictions for some European countries (excerpt) on return from Austria:

Germany:

  • Travel warning for the whole of Austria
  • At least five days quarantine, only afterwards can a negative Covid-19 test exempt you from quarantine. The maximum duration of isolation is reduced from 14 to ten days for this
  • Completion of a digital entry declaration prior to return to Germany is required by order of the German Federal Ministry of Health
  • Additionally, mandatory testing upon entry was introduced (two-test policy). The obligation to test on entry can be fulfilled by testing within 48 hours before arrival or by testing immediately after arrival. The obligation to enter a ten-day quarantine remains. The legal situation in the individual states is referred to on this page of the German Federal Government
