SAFE HOSPITALITY IN THE STUBAI MOUNTAIN SUMMER
In order to present Austria as a safe country to travel to, the Austrian government has announced that employees in the tourist industry across the country should be tested for the coronavirus from July. A renowned Tirol medical laboratory has been testing test mountain (hiking) guides as well as staff working in accommodation services, restaurants, cable cars, sports shops and leisure facilities since the beginning of June.
We are also arranging training for coronavirus prevention and hygiene in conjunction with doctors in the Stubai Valley and the traditional “hollu” Tirol hygiene specialists.
This is how we aim to make our contribution to making hospitality safer in the Stubai mountain summer of 2020.
HAVE THE MOST FUN “AT A DISTANCE” - WITH A VARIED PROGRAMME FOR YOUR CHILDREN
From 29 June to 11 September and from 5 October to 23 October 2020, your children also have the opportunity to come along to our supervised children’s programme this summer.
Even if this summer we have to keep a greater distance when playing than we normally do, we won’t let it spoil our fun together. When we play with hula hoops or ropes, it can even be quite funny. Because - apart from when it rains - the activities in our programme only take place outdoors and only in small groups, which means that the kids always have enough space. You can find more information here.
TRAVEL ON THE STUBAI MOUNTAIN RAILWAYS - SAFELY
Our mountain railways have taken great care and every precaution to ensure your health is maintained as we transport you up the mountain. A safe distance of at least one metre is guaranteed in the waiting area and all valley and mountain stations have been sufficiently equipped with disinfectant dispensers. Please note that you are required to wear a face mask in the gondolas.
WHEN ARE OUR RAILWAYS OPEN?
Opening hours for the four Stubai mountain railways are as follows (current information can be found on their respective websites):
