Corona measures: Tour on Vienna’s local mountains only with a negative test


Anyone planning a weekend trip to Vienna’s local mountains should be prepared: You need a negative corona test for this.

VIENNA. Out of the city, up on the mountain: that is what many Viennese will probably think this coming weekend. However, one should bear in mind the new, stricter Corona measures: The exit controls in the districts of Wiener Neustadt-Land and Neunkirchen also affect Vienna’s local mountains.

In other words: Anyone planning a tour to the Hohe Wand, Semmering, Schneeberg or Rax currently needs a negative antigen test that is not older than 48 hours or a PCR test that is not older than 72 hours. The police make random checks at the district exits.

Alpine Club warns on Facebook

In view of the current rules, the Alpine Club Mountain Association also warned of unpleasant surprises on its Facebook page – according to the motto: “Viennese local mountains = hairdresser”.

Negative test for skiing too

Those who want to make a few more turns on the slopes are also affected by the tightening: If you want to visit the Zauberberg on Semmering and Stuhleck ski areas, you should definitely have a current negative test result with you. It does not have to be shown on the Zauberberg, for example, but an FFP2 mask is required on the premises, in the cash register area, in the cable car and in closed rooms. By the way: skiing is possible on the Zauberberg until Monday, April 5th. Access is only possible with a valid ticket, which can be bought online, or a reservation.

In the Neunkirchen district affected by the exit controls there are seven ski areas, the most popular are the Zauberberg, Mönichkirchen / Mariensee, the Wunderwiese in Puchberg am Schneeberg and the St. Corona family arena. The exit controls also include the Unterberg in the Wiener Neustadt-Land district, which is popular with ski tourers.

The "Viennese Jaukerl" and the "Swallow vaccination" are now available


The wait for the Jaukerl is over!

When two Viennese veterans come together, something big happens! The organic winery Lenikus and the bz-Wiener Bezirkszeitung have created the 750ml serum made from the best fermented grape juice together with the “Wiener Jaukerl” and the “Schluck Vaccination”. The year 2020 will always be remembered as the year of the global pandemic, and the year 2021 as the year of the global vaccination against Covid-19. The “serum” obviously does not help against the virus and can also be the right one …
