At the same time, however, we would like to react quite flexibly to restrictions or relaxations in the individual areas and reserve the right to make any changes. 

Together against Covid19

So that you can enjoy your family vacation to the fullest and carefree, we would like to inform you here about our measures. The legal requirements are met in full and serve as the basis for the Covid19 measures.


  • 2-G rule: Guests are admitted if they are vaccinated or have recovered.
  • Special provision for school-age children:
    · Children up to the age of 12 are exempt from the obligation to provide proof of G and therefore do not have to show a test result.
    · For children and adolescents who are of compulsory school age in Austria (9 years of schooling), there is a special regulation:
    · The Ninja Pass issued at Austrian schools is equivalent to a 2-G proof and is valid as proof of admission to restaurants, cinemas, hotels, sports and leisure facilities, etc.
    · Please note: The Ninja Pass proof is only valid during the weeks when regular tests are held at schools. During these weeks, the Ninja Pass is also valid for the weekends. The proof is not accepted during the holidays, for example, due to the lack of a regular testing interval.
    · After the end of the ninth school year (compulsory education), all young people must have a 2G certificate.
    · For children from the age of 12 who are not subject to compulsory school attendance in Austria, the 2G proof obligation remains in force. Proof of vaccination or recovery is required. We hope that it will be possible to find a regulation for children not attending school in Austria, however, as of the current status quo, the 2G regulation remains in place.
  • We refrain from handshakes and hugs.
  • Our employees wear mouth-nose protection in the guest area.
  • Guests must wear a mouth-nose protection when entering the restaurant, to the table and to the buffet.
