Guidelines for safe holidays at Lake Achensee

Only travel when you’re healthy, follow the code of conduct, and keep your distance. Here’s how it works.

Winterlandschaft in Maurach am Achensee

Visitors can enjoy their holidays and recreational activities in the Achensee holiday region despite the coronavirus – provided that everyone follows the regulations. We’ve rounded up the general rules and recommendations for you.

Basic requirements

Vaccinated – recovered (2G rule)

  • The key to entry is proof that you are either vaccinated or recovered (in Austria referred to as 2G rule). Valid proof in terms of the 2G rule is mandatory for all guests who have completed compulsory schooling (9th grade).
  • Regulation for children:
    • No proof is required for children under the age of 12 years
    • Children aged 12 years and over until the end of compulsory schooling (9th grade) require appropriate proof
    • Ninja pass for children of compulsory school age equals the 2G proof.
    • Holiday Ninja Pass: The Holiday Ninja Pass is valid for the entire winter season 21/22. Thus, school-age children who don’ t live in Austria can still enter Austria with the Holiday Ninja Pass and are equal to the Austrian kids, as long as they are also tested regularly at school.

Mandatory mask wearing

  • FFP2 masks are compulsory everywhere indoors (except in restaurants, at your own table, during sporting activities).
  • The FFP2 mask must also be worn outdoors if a distance of 2 meters is not possible, e.g. in pedestrian zones, waiting lines, group gatherings, etc. (exception for close relatives such as partners and children).

Mandatory registration

In addition to these measures, guests must register when entering hospitality and event venues, accommodations and leisure facilities.

Observe hygiene etiquette

  • Simple hygiene measures help to protect yourself and others from infection with the coronavirus (washing/disinfecting hands, observing sneezing and coughing etiquette, …)

Safety

Austria is among the countries that carry out the most tests in the world. Only if we continue to test people regularly we can detect positive cases early and interrupt the chain of infection. All employees in the tourism sector are tested regularly and on an ongoing basis. We recommend wearing FFP2 masks where masks are mandatory.

“TRACY” – Digital registration via QR-code

“TRACY”, the district-wide uniform and digital solution for contact tracking at Lake Achensee. It was developed so that our guests can enjoy safe and relaxing holidays in the region and also to support local businesses in handling the applicable Covid-19 regulations. The newly created contact tracing solution via QR code is used in tourism and other businesses.
