ÖTZTAL. THE ENERGY FROM THE MOUNTAINS.

As of 18th May 2020

Currently there are fairly positive reports on the subject of Covid-19, which we would like forward to you. The first easing measures will take place in May 2020. As in all of Austria and Tirol, the Ötztal Valley is presently in a phase of controlled, secure, gradual opening. The reproduction number is currently decreasing in Austria. Therefore the safety measures to contain the Corona Virus can be loosened step by step. Restaurants and pubs will open on 15 May, hotels and accommodation facilities as well as leisure time facilities on 29 May 2020. A minimum distance of one meter must still be observed in public spaces. The general hygiene and face mask regulations also apply. The health and safety of the local population, employees and guests are a top priority in Ötztal. We will provide the necessary safety with the usual hospitality and high standards, so that a 2020 summer holiday in Ötztal will be possible. We have summarized the most important information details about your 2020 summer holiday below - please take a look at the "FAQs".
