Alpine Club Vienna: Hiking in Austria

Alpine Activities in Times of Corona

The Alpenverein has now also published an official translation of their guidelines for alpine activities with regard to Corona (pdf) - the original German version is here. This will be considered to be the basic rules (not just recommendations!) for how activities in the Alpine Club Vienna will be run - until further notice.



Note about staying in mountain huts

From the 29th May, it is once again possible to stay overnight in huts. There are though limitations (see original german information here):

  1. Only visit huts when you are healthy
  2. Bring your own facemask with you
  3. Reserve your bed or place in the dormitory in advance. You will NOT be allocated a place to sleep without a reservation.
  4. A stay in the hut is only possible with your own sleeping bag and a pillow case (a light down or summer sleeping bag). A sheet sleeping bag (“Hüttenschlafsack”) normally used in huts will normally not be warm enough, as blankets will NOT be provided by the hut.
