Let's not get upset together. Yes it is a virus - but we are convinced that you can still have a carefree vacation even during Covid times.

According to the current status, all persons who have been vaccinated with a Covid 19 vaccine approved in the EU are considered vaccinated. With regard to other vaccines, such as Sinovac, Sputnik, etc., we assume that the federal government will clarify their approval in the next few days.
"Fully Vaccinated" is considered
Only until December 5th: Double vaccination: valid for 360 days from the time of the second vaccination or any further vaccination. There must be at least 120 days between the second and third vaccination and at least 14 days between the first and second vaccination.
Single vaccination: At Johnson & Johnson, the validity is 270 days from the 22nd day after vaccination. A primary vaccination with a vaccine that provides two doses is not sufficient.
Caution! From December 6th, the validity will be reduced from 360 days to 270 days!
If those who have recovered are vaccinated, the first dose is already valid for 360 days from the time of vaccination.
Those who have recovered are those who have been confirmed as positive by a licensing authority. The recovery certificate is valid for 6 months, at the earliest from the 11th day after the first molecular biological confirmed infection. A maximum of 180 days afterwards.
The submission of a current PCR test (validity 48 hours) or a certified test station or an antigen rapid test (validity 24 hours) is considered tested.
The 2G rule applies from 16 years of age. For children from 12 to 15 years of age, a valid PCR test is required and compulsory upon arrival.
During your entire stay, tests (children under 16 years of age) and proof of vaccination or recovery must be carried with you, as this is required by law for access to the cable cars, restaurants / bars / apricot bars, etc.
The apartments in the "Apart Iris" and the "Apart Rauch" always offer an opportunity to find a place for yourself due to their size and variety.
Of course, we guarantee you the highest hygiene standards, which we have always lived and practiced anyway. In addition, we have increased the number of cleaning and disinfection cycles in all official areas.
This is how we guarantee a carefree holiday with us in the Ötztal
We do everything to ensure you have a safe stay. Of course, we are also dependent on your support. On this page we answer which guidelines apply to you as a guest, which measures have been taken for a carefree holiday.
