Well informed about the Kaunertal nature park and glacier region

Start your holiday in Kaunertal well informed. Alpine freedom of the mountains is calling.

 

The development of the Kaunertal has been shaped by sustainability for years. Away from the larger gatherings of people, our region impresses with alpine natural spaces and more than 200 kilometers of hiking trails. The valley is designated as a climate change adaptation region with the best air quality. The Kaunergrat Nature Park offers peace and relaxation with a diverse flora and fauna. The Kaunertal with its many "three thousand meter peaks" and the varied offer of the impressive glacier including panoramic road offers cross-generational, barrier-free mountain experiences. Ideal conditions for a vacation with "distance".

 

The health of our guests, employees and residents of the Kaunertal is always our top priority. For this reason, all guidelines regarding Covid-19, which are imposed by the federal government, are strictly adhered to. The government recently announced the latest guidelines for the coming winter season. However, please note the generally applicable hygiene measures. www.sichere-gastfreundschaft.at

The most important questions and answers for the safety of guests in the ski area

Mouth and nose protection must be worn in all gondola lifts, in the waiting areas of the lifts, in the ski bus and in the entire restaurant area (except at the seat / table). Exceptions are children up to the age of 6 or people who cannot be expected to do so for health reasons.

In addition to the conventional mouth and nose protection masks, multifunctional towels, ski masks, bandanas, buffs, etc. are also used as mouth and nose protection. It is important that the mouth and nose are completely covered.

Mouth and nose protection is available on request at the cash registers and lift stations.

There are corresponding floor markings in all waiting areas by the lifts or in the restaurant. In terms of keeping your distance, personal responsibility also plays a major role. If a minimum distance cannot be maintained, we recommend wearing mouth and nose protection. This is already mandatory in the lift stations and gondolas.

  • Mask requirements apply in the waiting areas and in the lanes.
  • The mouth and nose protection must be worn during the entire waiting and driving time. Contrary to the legally prescribed measures, the mask requirement is also extended to the restaurant area.
  • Through visitor guidance and guidance systems, groups of people standing closely together are avoided as far as possible in the waiting areas.
  • The cable car cabins, toilet facilities and first aid stations are disinfected daily with cold fogging devices.
  • All cable car employees have a daily fever before starting work.

You can buy the ski ticket either via our online shop, directly at the hotel or while sitting in your own car at the toll station.
If possible, we recommend that you settle the bill contactless with a card.

The employees of the Kaunertaler Gletscherbahnen can be reached daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on +43 5475 5566 or by email kaunertal@tirolgletscher.com.
