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.
From the 29th May, it is once again possible to stay overnight in huts. There are though limitations (see original german information here):
- Only visit huts when you are healthy
- Bring your own facemask with you
- Reserve your bed or place in the dormitory in advance. You will NOT be allocated a place to sleep without a reservation.
- 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.
