Despite the coronavirus, holidays and recreational activities may take place in the Achensee holiday region, provided that everyone follows the rules and regulations. We’ve rounded up the general conditions and recommendations for you.

Basic requirements

Observe hygiene etiquette

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 an FFP2 mask everywhere where it is obligatory.
