The safety formula ‘vaccinated, tested or recovered’ is your ticket to restaurants, cultural events, sports and leisure activities during your entire stay in Austria. You will need to present proof of your status when you first check into your accommodation and every time you enter a restaurant, public swimming pool, museum or any other recreational facility. This also applies to your hotel’s restaurant, breakfast room, gym, indoor swimming pool etc.
Tests directly in your accomodation facility
Your host will give you a free rapid antigen test for each day of your holiday which is valid for 24h and enables you to visit restaurants, museums and so on. You can register your result on the website of the state of Vorarlberg in a few easy steps. Your host will be happy to help you if needed.
Hosts can also offer you observed self-tests directly in the accomodation which are valid for 48 hours and also apply when crossing the boarder. Ask your hosts for more information.
The following options are available as alternatives:
Tests at sport.park.lech:
Monday: 10.00 am to 02.00 pm, sport.park.lech
Thursday: 01.30 - 04.45 pm, sport.park.lech

What if something goes wrong?
If your rapid antigen test produces a positive result, please contact the public-health hotline 1450 immediately and let your host know, too. The authorities will immediately offer you a PCR test, and your result will be ready within 48 hours at maximum. Until then, you will need to stay in your room. Your host will make sure you have everything you need. The Republic of Austria will cover up to EUR 75 per night of your accommodation costs while you quarantine. If your PCR test is positive, too, you will be able to travel home in controlled conditions in most cases.
