Safe Winter Holidays

Dear Winter! Sometimes you present us with extraordinary challenges!

In Salzburger Land, we are doing everything possible to ensure we can trudge through the snow, slice down the pistes and unwind after an exciting winter’s day as soon as possible and without having to give it a second thought.

The Austrian Federal Government again imposes far-reaching measures against the spread of Covid-19. Significantly stricter rules will probably apply in Austria up to the 26th of February 2021  in order to contain the recent sharp rise in the number of infections as effectively as possible.
