The COVID-19 Code of Conduct of the lift companies in the ALPIN CARD ticket alliance: Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun.

Dear Mountain-Friends,

Big changes have developed over the last months – COVID-19 has influenced our way of life worldwide. The safety and personal health of every person are, more than ever at the forefront of our minds, including that of our lift companies. We are establishing, based on the regulations of the Austrian Federal Government, a series of measures to protect all guests and employees.

In compliance with the current valid regulations and additional safety measures, we firmly believe that you can relax and enjoy your holidays in our network with incorporated safety distance measures.



Please respect our COVID-19 Code of Conduct, which is continuously updated to reflect the current situation and any changes in legal or regulatory requirements.

Mountain restaurants
Current Austrian law pertaining to COVID-19 requires us to solicit documentation from guests (from the age of 10) to ensure they present low epidemiological risk (i.e. they are either vaccinated, tested or recovered).


Examples of valid documentation are as follows:

  • Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result
  • Formal confirmation from a physician of COVID-19 recovery after an infection
  • Formal confirmation of quarantine completion subsequent to COVID-19 infection
  • Proof of vaccination
  • Proof of neutralizing antibodies 

In addition:

  • All guests must register if staying longer than 15 minutes.
  • Mouth-nose-protector (MNP): When entering our restaurants and dining facilities, guests must wear a facemask covering the nose and mouth. Having taken your seat, the facemask may be removed.


From you we request!

Please follow our COVID-19 Code of Conduct and enjoy your stay in the ALPIN CARD region.


We will continually evaluate the situation and adapt our Code of Conduct to fall in line with any changes regarding legal or regulatory requirements.

This information will be updated on an ongoing basis!
