Your health is close to our heart!
COVID info for our guests
We are implementing the rules of conduct and measures stipulated by the Austrian Federal Government for your safety as consistently as possible, but at the same time, we want to ensure that the holiday experience of our guests is affected as little as possible. We ask you, valued guests, to pay attention to these.
We are very happy that we can answer two frequently asked questions positively: YES, our wellness area is allowed to open, and YES, our breakfast buffet will also be available to you!
This is the latest information from our federal government. We will be happy to keep you up to date about any relaxations or changes here.
As participants in the “Safe Hospitality” initiative of the Austrian Chambers of Commerce, employees of Grossarler Hof undergo a corona test once a week. It goes without saying that we carefully implement the highest hygiene standards throughout the hotel. In addition, the number of cleaning and disinfection measures in the entire area has been increased. So in the spacious Grossarler Hof, nothing stands in the way of a holiday with freedom, safety and space.
