in South Tyrol
There’s no doubt about it - we are living through uncertain times with many open questions with very few answers. How safe is it to travel to South Tyrol right now? What should we keep in mind? How unrestricted and carefree will your holiday be once you are here? Even though we don’t have a crystal ball for looking into the future, we have put together a summary of current travel information to ensure that your time together at the Alpenhof and its surroundings is as untroubled as it can be:
Travel warnings and entry into the region
South Tyrol is currently classified as a safe travel area. That’s why there are NO restrictions on entry. All Italian borders can be crossed. It is also still possible to travel through Tyrol/Austria by car, however it should be done in one go without a stopover in order to avoid the possibility of having to obtain a medical certificate showing a negative test result that may be required in your home country.
Situation in South Tyrol
At the present time it is possible to take an unrestricted holiday in South Tyrol within the framework of the general hygiene and safety rules. Current COVID 19 figures can be found on the website of the South Tyrolean Provincial Administration. The data is continuously updated by the South Tyrolean health authorities and the Civil Protection Agency.
What if we can’t make it?
Border’s closed? Quarantine directive? At least you shouldn’t need to worry about that! We have relaxed our cancellation terms: Should official travel restrictions be introduced, it will be possible to cancel your holiday at short notice at no cost.
And what about our usual all-around carefree service?
We are doing our best to be able to offer all of our usual services - even if they might sometimes be in a slightly different form. Childcare will be provided as usual and we will stay outside as much as possible. The sauna will also be available - for private visits after first making an appointment at reception.
Mission “spick and span”!
Naturally, cleanliness and hygiene are essential in a family home. This is nothing new for us... nevertheless we have once again upgraded our systems: with hand sanitiser dispensers in all public areas and a brand new ozone generator for air purification in the buffet area and restaurant. And our continual “spick and span” tours of the building are enough to scare any virus away...
Even though we would prefer to give you a smile without covering our faces, for safety reasons we will be wearing protective masks and visors wherever recommended or required. In addition, we are currently out and about with our tape measures and taking all of the precautions needed to ensure that the recommended safe distances can be maintained within the building - whilst making sure that everyone can still get around with ease.
Playing it safe together...
We are neither virologists nor soothsayers - but we are well informed and are following developments closely! Our employees know exactly what they need to do to keep our holiday environment safe. Moreover, upon check-in, all of our guests will be given a brief introduction to the most important rules of conduct for mixing safely in the hotel.
Simply breathe the air of freedom...
We are convinced that a breath of fresh mountain air always does you good. So how about it? The mountains and ski slopes of our holiday region are just waiting for you to get here! And our Family Home is also constantly replenished with healthy fresh air via our ventilation system.
To the giant wave slide!
Good news for all wave slide champions: we have it on good authority that corona viruses are afraid of giant slides. Okaaay, we know that’s nonsense! Nevertheless, there is no reason why the slide cannot be used provided that we keep to the minimum distances. So, dear dads, don’t forget your swimming trunks! ;)
Freedom is made of courage. And optimism.
Everything will be fine!
