Measures concerning Covid-19

Some health advice for our guests

We are in continuous contact with our authorities and are, of course, following all the specified guidelines. In winter, we voluntarily enhanced our hygiene measures. We will also keep these in place last summer. We will also maintain this.

The most important thing, as we all know, is to keep your distance. Therefore, when entering the hotel or restaurant, we ask you to pay attention to the prescribed minimum distance from strangers. The BOHO baby elephants have also already arrived, so we can better imagine and memorize the necessary distance.

We ask you to refrain from hugging and shaking hands at this time. As you also know, we also ask you to pay attention to washing your hands. We have disinfectants - organic from the Austrian mountains - at the reception, in the restaurant and in the Alpine Spa.

Otherwise, as we all know, spending time in the great outdoors is the safest way to spend your vacation. We pay attention to one thing above all: distances. Apart from that, our guests can move freely and hopefully liberated on our mountain.

In order to arrange a carefree and safe holiday for all, we constantly update our measures an dwith simple rules we all get through this time well! Thank you for that.

Yours, Daniela Pfefferkorn, Director Markus Mathis & the golden team.

From 08 November, 3G will become 2G for our guests throughout Austria. 
Children aged 12 years and older also require proof of a low epidemiological risk wherever 2G proof is required.

As proof of a low epidemiological risk - depending on the "step plan" and thus as "entry test" are considered:

  1. Second vaccination, whereby this must not be longer than 360 days ago (from 06.12. only 270 days) and at least 14 days must have elapsed between the first and second vaccination,
  2. Vaccination from the 22nd day after vaccination for vaccines for which only one vaccination is planned, whereby this must not be longer than 270 days ago (Attention: Vaccination certificates for one dose with Janssen lose their validity with 03.01.2022. Therefore, a 2nd dose is required at the earliest 14 days after the 1st dose in order to continue to receive a valid vaccination certificate),
  3. Vaccination, provided that a positive molecular biological test for SARS-CoV-2 or evidence of neutralizing antibodies was available at least 21 days prior to vaccination, whereby the vaccination must not have taken place more than 360 days ago (from 06.12. only 270 days).
  4. The following COVID-19 vaccines are currently licensed in the European Union (as of spring 2021):
    1. The vaccine Comirnaty from the manufacturer BioNTech/Pfizer is licensed from the age of 12 years.
    2. The manufacturer Moderna's Spikevax vaccine is licensed for ages 12 and older.
    3. The vaccine Vaxzevria from the manufacturer AstraZeneca is approved from the age of 18 years.
    4. The vaccine COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen from the manufacturer Janssen is approved from the age of 18 years
  5. The vaccine Sputnik is not licensed in Austria and therefore not valid 

Proof according to 3.1 or a: 

Recovery certificate of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 survived in the last 180 days or a medical confirmation of an infection with SARS-CoV-2 survived in the last 180 days, confirmed by molecular biology; or 
Segregation notice, if issued for a person confirmed to have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the 180 days prior to the scheduled testing.

Children and 2G detection.
The requirement to present valid 2G evidence does not apply to children up to the age of 12 years. Therefore, children do not need their own proof of G to go to a restaurant with their parents.  After completing their ninth grade year, youth, like adults, require 2-G proof. 

The Corona Test Pass, also known as the "Ninja Pass," provides students who are subject to general compulsory education (9th grade) with valid proof of their respective negative test result at school, a vaccination that has already been given (from age 12), and/or a certificate issued outside of school.

This proof can be presented, for example, in a restaurant or at a hairdresser's, or in all places where persons over the age of 12 (over the age of 6 in Vienna) are required to present a negative test result. In addition, it is advisable to have a student ID, a free ticket or similar with you when visiting a restaurant. In the week in which the test intervals are observed, the Ninja- Pass is also valid as 2G proof on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of that week.
