Conditions & Important Info

For care-free holidays at the Hotel Bismarck

To be able to truly enjoy your family holiday, ski deal or spa holiday to its fullest, you have to be well prepared! We have put together some important information you’ll need before you arrive at the Hotel Bismarck.


From 1st of July guests in hotels and restaurants are no longer required to wear a mask. On public transport, shops  and museums, a conventional mouth-nose protection has to be worn instead of the FFP2 mask.


The Austrian Federal Government has determined that arrival at the hotel is possible at any time if one of the 3 following points is fulfilled:
* Tested (confirmation required)
* Recovered (medically confirmed covid disease)
* Vaccinated (valid from the day of the second vaccination (confirmation required)

which is linked to the Ministry of Health online.
Current regulation:
Guests who are neither vaccinated nor recovered
must take an antigen test every 2 days,
from 15 september every hours.
(Children up to the age of 12 do not need a test).
This is easily done daily from
 about 08.30 a.m. to 09.30 a.m. in our hotel.
This also has the advantage of free access to all restaurants in town.


Your room reservation with HEART and mindful of your safety: 

  • Uncomplicated, free of charge (or rebooking) up to 7 days before arrival if one of the following Covid 19 reasons exits. If there are acute changes less than 7 days before arrival or during your stay in our hotel, the free cancellation period will be adjusted.
  • We guarantee this free cancellation option should one of these Covid 19 reasons exist:

    Travel warning for the Salzburg area
    In case of border closure
    If you have to go into an officially ordered quarantine (presentation of a certificate)

    Otherwise, the cancellation conditions of the Austrian Hotel Regulations apply:

    From 1 week to 1 month before arrival: 70% of the total price.
    Up to 1 week before arrival or early departures during your holiday: 90% of the total price.
