Do I need an entrance test when I want to start my holiday at the hotel?
An entrance test for our hotels is only necessary if it is required by the respective state government.
Guests in our Austrian hotels have to do a controlled antigen (self) test every 2 days according to the regulations of the 4th COVID-19 protective measures ordinance.
Is the green certificate (green passport) also valid?
Yes, the green passport is recognised in all Falkensteiner hotels.
I'm considering a holiday in a few months. How can I be sure that the borders will be open by then?
The decision on whether to open or close various border crossings is the responsibility of the governments of the countries concerned and is taken at short notice in view of the dynamic developments. The current border closures can be found on the country-specific information pages. We operate in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations and also offer free PCR tests depending on the destination. Please note our information regarding PCR tests.
I have a reservation but my flight has been cancelled. Can I cancel my booking free of charge, even though the cancellation conditions according to the booking no longer allow this?
This is possible when booking a package tour, but the hotel is not liable for any changes or cancellations when booking flights and hotels individually. In this case, the hotel cannot cancel free of charge. In case of a new booking of the flight and possible slight postponements of the arrival and departure day (maximum +/- 3 days) we are, if possible, flexible and will adapt your accommodation booking accordingly.
I have booked with Falkensteiner, but the country in which the hotel is located has imposed an obligatory quarantine for travellers and I cannot start my journey because of this. What now?
If entry restrictions are set for the travel period due to the Corona pandemic and the booked hotel cannot provide the agreed service due to exit restrictions or similar, a rebooking of the stay or conversion of the deposit in form of a voucher is possible.
What happens if a close family member falls ill with Covid-19 and I cannot/do not want to travel?
In case of illnesses of first or second degree relatives, please contact your travel insurance, as these are usually covered by a cancellation insurance. In any case, we recommend taking out travel insurance, which is also available through our partner HanseMerkur. Since October 2020 we have also been offering corona protection. You can find further information here: https://www.falkensteiner.com/en/insurance
What happens if the hotel or region is quarantined during my stay?
The health of our guests and staff is our top priority. An action plan has therefore been developed in accordance with WHO and national guidelines. This includes the isolation of sick people on site in the hotel. In the event of an emergency, a room contingent and an isolation plan are available per hotel.
In my home country there is a ban on leaving the country, but not in the country of arrival. Can I cancel free of charge?
If an individual trip is booked, i.e. if the journey and accommodation are organised separately, the hotel is not legally obliged to make a free cancellation. If you book directly at the hotel or online, we will be happy to check the possibility of postponing a reservation. Please note that there may be surcharges depending on the season.
The borders are not officially open, but can I still book if I risk it and try to get across?
It is very important for us as a company to comply with the regulations and guidelines of the individual countries. We will not refuse you a booking, but we strongly advise you to postpone your stay to a time when crossing the border is allowed.
What happens if I contract Covid-19 during my stay?
We have reserved a contingent of guest rooms in our hotels, which we equip as so-called isolation rooms with all the comfort and necessary utensils, so that a cosy, relaxing atmosphere can be fully guaranteed. If I as a guest should suddenly fall ill with Covid19, my stay will be immediately transferred to an isolation room in order to protect my family, other guests and staff accordingly and thus prevent me from transmitting the virus to other people. Afterwards the responsible doctor or health authority, with whom the hotel cooperates accordingly, will be contacted and will take over the further procedure in accordance with the legal medical guidelines. My hotel, where I am staying at the moment, supports me and my family in all necessary arrangements (e.g. return journey, notification of relatives etc.) and finds out with my help and support which other guests or employees I have been in contact with, in order to inform them accordingly and to be able to take all further necessary measures. The entire hotel team on site is intensively trained and certified in the form of a specially developed and defined Corona Protection Catalogue and I, as a guest, can fully trust that the right decisions are made on site.
What happens if I fall ill with Covid-19 outside the free cancellation period?
In case of illness or medical certificate, please contact your travel insurance company, as this is usually covered by a cancellation insurance. If no travel insurance has been taken out, a rebooking of the stay within the booked hotel is possible within the next 365 days.

Applications and massages are possible without restrictions, provided that safety measures are observed (thorough disinfection | intensive room ventilation).
I would like to avoid as many contacts as possible. How can I get information from a member of staff without having to go to reception?
Our reception team is available for information, advice and tips by phone, text messages via smartphone or email.
Despite the current situation, our guest service has absolute priority and we will do our utmost to continue to pamper you as usual during your stay.
Will programs and activities still take place at the hotel and at the destination?
We are partially dependent on cooperation partners for the implementation of activities, excursions and the like. As long as these partners are able to meet our security requirements and the legal framework, the activities will continue to take place. Activities that the hotel itself carries out will take place if the security measures can be observed. Outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling tours and guided tours but also yoga, weight training etc. are usually offered while activities with direct contact, unavoidable body proximity or shared equipment such as tastings, cooking classes, football tournaments etc. are not possible. For training sessions in closed rooms, a maximum number of participants corresponding to the room applies.
What restrictions do I have to expect in the destination? (Example: no swimming in the lake, museums closed etc.)
We will be happy to inform you about local conditions on our homepage in the hotel specific FAQs or some days before arrival in an information message via e-mail.
What do I have to consider when visiting the restaurant?
In each of our hotels, we ensure that the guidelines applicable in the respective country are strictly observed. In addition, we have taken measures that go beyond this and ensure maximum hygiene and safety. These include, among other things, the holding of several sessions with regard to meal times, the use of disposable utensils (while at the same time taking environmental aspects into account), changes to buffets, etc. We kindly ask you to wear your mask when not seating at your table. In every hotel we make every effort to provide the usual Falkensteiner service despite the necessary safety measures and to maintain the variety of our usual offers.

Our service team has reserved a fixed seating time for you for the respective meals. Please wait at the entrance of the restaurant with the marked distance to other guests until Our service team welcomes you and accompanies you personally to the table. The service team member responsible for you during your stay will explain to you what the procedure is. In Austria, the consumption of food and beverages is only allowed at the seat. You will find more details about the measures in the restaurant area in the hotel specific FAQs.
Can the corona virus be transmitted via food or drinks?
Transmission via food is theoretically possible as with a classic smear infection, although it is very unlikely. Nevertheless, we have taken strict additional measures for food processing that go beyond the high HACCP standards that have been in place up to now.
Is the Falkensteiner breakfast buffet available as usual?
In order to effectively guarantee the minimum distance regulation for your safety, we have modified and adapted buffets accordingly (such as disinfection of serving cutlery, provision of hand disinfection and disposable gloves, pre-portioned food and increased serving of food). The selection continues to offer the Falkensteiner breakfast variety, adapted to the respective region. We kindly ask you to wear your mask when not seating at your table.

Details can be found in the hotel specific FAQs.
Is the room disinfected before arrival?
