When entering various countries, an entry form must be completed prior to entry:

 

Persons from all over Austria can enter Germany without restriction from Sunday, 13.6.2021 0 o'clock. However, the prerequisite is that these persons have not stayed in a country now still classified as a risk area in the last 10 days. Thus, 3-G proof and notification requirements are no longer required for entry into Germany. Exception: air travel.

Air travel from Austria to Germany is still only possible with test, convalescent or vaccination proof. Entry registration is no longer required.

Attention. The Austrian entry regulations, in particular the 3-G-rule and a possible digital entry registration (if one makes up the test only in Austria) by means of Pre-Travel Clearance Form, still exist!

Many landlords in the Tyrolean Oberland offer particularly moderate and relaxed cancellation conditions during this difficult-to-plan period. You want to arrive individually and flexibly? No problem in the Tyrolean Oberland! So nothing stands in the way of a safe and carefree vacation.

In the event of a lockdown or official accommodation closures is always possible to cancel free of charge!

However, we recommend that you take out travel insurance. The Europäische Reiseversicherung now insures Covid-19 diseases, like any other unexpected serious illness.flexible cancellation conditions
