Possibilities for a PCR-test are provided in Obertauern in case it is required for returning to your country. Please feel free to ask at the hotel reception for more information.

A very warm welcome

It’s hard for us not to shake your hand to welcome you – that’s been a given up to now… but we can also offer our warmest and most sincere smile as a welcome!


Hygiene as a matter of course

… has always had the highest priority. Nevertheless, we have also upgraded here. For your protection, the number of cleaning and disinfection cycles has been massively increased. An extended number of disinfection stands are also available wherever there is a need. Everyone can contribute to safety here. We benefit from a long-standing and successful cooperation with professional external hygiene institutes, which keep us constantly up to date. To bring fresh, healthy air into the premises, rooms are regularly aired.

Mindfulness in restaurants

Our great team is wearing face masks (currently an FFP2 mask) for your and their own safety. Also the highest hygiene precautions have always been standard.

Relaxing hours in our wellness area

Our spa area offers plenty of space and freedom and is open in compliance with the minimum distance and maximum number of people allowed as well as official regulations. Your personal bathing bag with bath towels and bathing slippers is ready for you in your “holiday home”.

We will continue to offer you nibbles and drinks in the “little inn” in compliance with the new hygiene and safety rules.

Common sense dictates that it is not reasonable to wear a mask when swimming or in the hot air or steam cabins. Please keep the minimum distance as much as possible during all activities.

Vaccinated AND tested employees

We play it safe! All of our employees are vaccinated or recovered from Covid-19, take personal responsibility and are trained – they know what is at stake. All measures are taken very seriously and to this end, they will themselves be tested for Covid-19 on a regular basis.

Risk-free booking with European travel insurance

In order to eliminate any risk of cancellation costs for you, we recommend that you take out European Travel Insurance, which is the only insurance company that also covers Covid-19 diseases. In the event of border closures or travel warnings, we guarantee free cancellation. Schneider’s tip: take out the insurance directly when booking. Info

Cancellation conditions 2021/22

At the moment the cancellation conditions of the Austrian hotel regulations apply, which we will adapt to the current situation. Should the Covid-19 pandemic lead to local or personal travel restrictions (such as quarantine or ban on entering Austria), no cancellation fees will be charged.

The following measures are currently in effect in our hotel: Upon arrival you are required to show a proof of vaccination or a proof of past infection (in accordance with the Austrian “2G rules”). This is the case for the whole winter season 2021/22

In general we ask you to arrive healthy.



The measures are regularly adapted. Status: February 21, 2022
