Things worth knowing (FAQ)
Everything you need to know for your holiday
- What is the current status of Coronavirus in Kleinwalsertal?
A lockdown for everyone will apply to the whole of Austria from Monday, 22 November 2021. According to the Federal Government, this is limited to a maximum of 20 days, with an evaluation after 10 days. The measures are to end automatically on 13 December 2021 at the latest.
Kleinwalsertal (municipality of Mittelberg) is not a high-risk area (exception to the German travel warning of 12.11.2021), for German travellers this means that they do not have to register before travelling home to Germany (no digital entry registration). There are no quarantine regulations, not even for children under 12.
What should I bear in mind when travelling to Kleinwalsertal?
No registration (pre-travel clearance) is required to travel to Kleinwalsertal. Kleinwalsertal is exempt from the Austrian entry regulations. For the check-in you need a 2G proof (recovered or vaccinated). Further information here.
What applies to the return journey to Switzerland?
For the entry or return from Vorarlberg to Switzerland (or from Switzerland to Vorarlberg) there are no changes due to the new entry regulations of Switzerland from 17.9.2021, it is still possible without restrictions!
For information: From Monday, 20 September 2021, persons who have not been vaccinated or have not recovered must present a negative test on entry. All persons entering the country must also fill out an entry form. Persons travelling through Switzerland without a stopover as well as cross-border commuters and persons entering from border areas, including the whole of Vorarlberg, are exempt from the test and form requirement.
In general, FFP2 masks are mandatory everywhere in Austria where no 2-G certificate is required. This therefore applies in public transport, grocery shops, shops, petrol stations, museums and libraries, among other places.
