Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

What is the current situation regarding travel to Austria

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
What are the rules about arriving in Salz. On the 12th
Travelling to Germany for a night & then travelling back into Aus on the 13th assuming restrictions are lifted?
Thought I read that Austria to Germany means quarantining. Is that for Vaccinated people as well?

Found this; I need to keep an eye on this too if I’m going in and out of Austria to and from Munich.

In addition, travellers from Austria, Czechia, Hungary, and Laos are also obliged to stay self-isolated for ten days upon their arrival.

Nonetheless, the German authorities have explained that travellers who prove that they have been fully immunised with one of the vaccines recognised in Germany can skip the quarantine requirement.

I’m fairly sure that there is no quarantine required (for fully vaccinated) unless children are involved, owing to the differing vaccination rules concerning minors in each country. So long as that’s not an issue, then no problem….as things stand right at this moment. Of course, tomorrow could see a change, or the day after, or next week…etc etc.

Transit through Germany is allowed for up to 24 hours with an exemption with the requirement to complete the digital registration form and an exemption from any quarantine requirements which may otherwise apply (particularly relevant for travel with children from the UK and Austria who would normally be subject to a 5 day compulsory quarantine in Germany).

@Mr.Egg, no quarantine if you are fully vaccinated

@buchanan101, Ireland & UK too amongst other places, just upload your vaccination certificate when you fill in your PLF (which isnt needed for transit). Do expect a text from the Health dept. reminding you to keep to the rules, they are not picking on you, everyone gets them.

We flew to MUC & transited to Austria last week - you can only fill in the German DEA entry form of you've got a German destination address, so couldn't get past that part of the online entry.
However just show your Austrian accommodation details at MUC passport control and they're happy that you're in transit... snowHead

Thanks. On return if I stay overnight in Munich I will have an address.

One worry is that the rules change mid holiday…and I get stuck in Austria or Germany over Christmas…

Fairly close to cancelling and falling back on my Feb and April (reserve booked ages ago). But I need to ski…

Yes transit is up to 24 hours. I will be doing the same thing on the way out (assuming that our December trip actually happens!). Not intending to fill out the form unless I am required to by the airline to check-in.

From the Digital registration form entry page (https://www.einreiseanmeldung.de/#/):

"When do I not need to provide my details?
If, for the purpose of border traffic, you spent less than 24 hours in a risk area or are only entering the Federal Republic of Germany for up to 24 hours."

Someone else can advise better on Germany, but there doesn't seem to be any plan to close borders. Austria still explicitly allows travel outside the country even now during 'lockdown'.

It is pretty serious situation if you need to introduce mandatory vaccination and you put whole country into lockdown.

To decline number of newly infected, traveling out of country is not really an issue (it should be issue for country where these people travel too), but thing is, Austria still allows travel to the country without any restrictions (ok 3G is realistically not restriction), and I just found out yesterday, that my skiing in Austria is just fine (Molltal is just a bit more then hour drive from my home, so no need for hotels or anything). I mean I'm certainly not complaining, but if we look at this situation, it's plain stupid you allow people to come to country and do whatever they want, while at same time you restrict your own people to basically leave the house.

Second Vaccination validity, we nearly got caught out by the change in validity of the second vaccine it's calculated in days not months, we would have been 2 days short, from 4 December is 270 days from the second vaccine, the proposal is that from 1 February it reduces to 210 days.

They're not allowed to do whatever they want though, visitors have exactly the same restrictions as locals (which tbh aren't all that restrictive unless you want to go eating, drinking or shopping). Hopefully it helps the ski resorts' cashflow a bit at least...

With regard to Germany there is no discussion at all of any restrictions on movement similar to the beginning of the year (though as with any of this who knows what will happen next week). In some of the districts bordering Austria the restrictions on unvaccinated people are pretty much the same as in Austria (ie only allowed out for work etc) and restaurants are closed (ski resorts would be closed too but that is moot since too early for snow). In Bavaria it is now 2G to go to a restaurant and 3G to get on a bus. Other parts of Germany less restrictions. For anyone travelling by air to Germany even if only for transit I would advise filling in the plf simply to make the check in procedure easier, it really isnt a lot of faff (no bizarre questions about islands as in the UK one!).

@clarky999, I know, I didn't mean literally whatever they want, but still. If I go skiing to Molltal (hopefully next week weather will be fine and I will have some more time then this week Very Happy) it really doesn't make any difference for me if there's lockdown or not. Sure I won't go for coffee but that's not end of the world. But in my mind, if things are really that bad, I wouldn't want whole bunch of foreigners (our numbers are anything but great too) coming to country.

@2waterford, Yep, all supermarkets have to stock them at a fixed price of 0.59€. I've found a little bit of variation in the sizes between brands, so if they don't fit very well, go to another supermarket if there is one, and try those.

@buchanan101, I'm pretty sure that's where the piste bashers have been scraping snow; I think the track to the left of the image (taken from the webcam) is a skier-cross type of track - there was a skidoo flying around there at one time.

Just come up with a Plan D where I can use my Munich flight on 13th Dec if Austrian resorts are not open.

Drive to Val Gardena. I understand that transiting Austria is ok, and probably would still be (via Innsbruck).

Googlemaps say about 4 hour drive...Does that make sense? Is the Brenner Pass usually open, whatever the weather? Is there a closer Italian resort?
