The Ortstaxe rate at the time of writing is 3.2% of the accommodation cost (after taking off sales tax, the cost of breakfast and then 11% of the remaining amount).

Covid-19

To ensure the safety of all those attending, we are aligning our health and safety measures with the Federal Ministry Republic of Austria’s COVID regulations.  However, it is important that you take personal responsibility to travel safely and keep abreast of the regulations in your own country, as well as in Vienna.

Before you travel to Vienna, please check the applicable entry requirements for the country you are travelling from along with any regulations for your return travel. You can check requirements via the Federal Ministry Republic of Austria website: Coronavirus (sozialministerium.at). You should also check the regulations your airline or transport provider may have in place in relation to pre-travel Covid-19 testing and mask etiquette.

All travellers should follow the advice of the local authorities on how best to protect themselves and others.

Your health and safety whilst on site in Vienna is our primary concern. The Austria Center Vienna is fully operational with a full COVID protocol in place – further details can be found via their website here: Covid-19 prevention für Ihr Event | Austria Center Vienna (acv.at)

In Vienna only, FFP2 masks remain compulsory on public transport (as well as pharmacies). Children under the age of 6 are exempt, those from 6 to 13 can wear a regular mask while FFP2 masks are mandatory from the age of 14. (November 2022)

If you test positive for COVID-19 in Austria and do not have symptoms, you must wear an FFP2 mask when outside (except when outdoors and more than 2 metres away from other people).
