Summer 2021

status: 17.05.2021 - 03.30 am

Every step is an adventure

For years, Nauders’ development has been characterised by sustainability. Our motto "so far. so good - borderless mountainsummer" counts more than ever. Our region captivates with an extensive 3-country mountain panorama and the best air quality.


Nauders offers a spacious and unadulterated landscape of more than 90,300,000 m². Thanks to the moderate number of guest beds, it offers maximum space for a holiday at a distance. 
The wide range of summer services together with the perfectly developed infrastructure are the ideal conditions for holidaying at a “distance”.
Since the health and safety of our guests, staff and residents is our top priority, all regulations relating to Covid-19 will be strictly adhered to.

For the summer season the entire Nauders on the Reschen Pass region has decided on clear regulations and clearly defined measures.
We will do our best to ensure that you have a safe and relaxing holiday in Nauders. We have summarised the most important information, guidelines and measures regarding COVID-19 for you here.

What measures have we taken?

General information and organisation

By registering via the myVisitPass of the company fertael, we would like to create a simple and sevure way to contain the coronavirus. Contact persons can be tracked and contacted directly by the authorities. For restaurants, guest registration is obligatory according to the latest regulation. Other businesses, such as stores or mountain railroads, can carry out guest registration voluntarily. We summarized all informations about the myVisitPass for your holiday in Nauders at the Reschenpass.

We have installed adequate hand disinfection facilities at our cable car facilities and mountain restaurants in the Nauders ski resort.

Regardless of the current legal regulations, we will organise queueing areas technically in a way that avoids groups of people standing together where possible.

These will point out our Covid-19 guidelines at the entrances to transport facilities, mountain restaurants in the Nauders ski resort and the sport shop and ski depot at the Nauders Cable Car Centre. Furthermore, we will regularly provide you with information in several languages by means of announcements in feeder lift entrance areas and ticket sales offices.

More information about the myVisitPass

Mountain lifts

To offer you the usual comfort and a high level on safety for the ascent to the Bergkastel, you have the possibility to use the 6-place cable car Bergkastel with the maximum of 3 persons (50% of the capacity) for foreign persons. 

We will disinfect the Bergkastelseilbahn cable car several times a day. To do so, we deploy a long-lasting, floating mist of droplets using a special cold fogging device. This eliminates 99.99% of viruses, bacteria and spores on the treated surfaces within one minute. The active ingredient leaves no residue behind after use, is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic, pH neutral and not harmful to the skin or eyes.

Disinfection measures on surfaces and in rooms are also carried out daily in the sport shop and at Nauders Cable Car Centre, the first aid stations/ medical port and also in toilet facilities and lift cabins at the Bergkastel. We also use the aforementioned cold fogging machines for this purpose.

Mountain restaurants in Nauders at the Reschenpass

We observe the minimum distancing prescribed by the authorities for tables and seating facilities in mountain restaurants. Furthermore, we have installed new partitions in the seating areas and adapted and expanded hygiene measures in the free flow areas.

In order to guarantee compliance with adequate safe distancing, we will – regardless of capacity – also limit entry to our mountain restaurant facilities.

All our food and drink menus can be viewed online or using a QR code directly in the mountain restaurants and feeder cable car cabins.

With our "Sitzfix" you have the possibility to reserve your seat/desk at one of our Berggenuss Restaurants in advance online - so your seat is guaranteed. More informations about the "Sitzfix" follow under

Nauderer Bergbahnen AG is specifically stepping up a range of cleaning activities. For example, this applies to cleaning and disinfecting tables/mountain restaurants as well as handrails, door handles and sanitary facilities. We have also shorted the intervals for filter cleaning in the ventilation systems.

Process and measures summer.adventure.program & kids- and youth program

To facilitate compliance with headway controls, there will be manageable groups to hold all the safety precautions.

Maintain the social distance from 2 meters to other people. If this is not possible - cover your nose and mouth.

The main part of the summer.adventure.program and the kids- and youth program are online or via QR-code bookable or can be reserved online. There will be captured the dates for an possible contact tracing too.

Our staff

Staff at the cable cars Nauders, mountain restaurants, etc. are tested for Covid-19 before starting work for the first time. Follow up tests are carried out on specific occasions for those in contact with customers; ongoing testing is possible.

Staff at Nauders at the Reschenpass who comes into contact with guests (restaurants, cable car, rescue areas) are instructed to wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth. 

The Tyrolean Oberland Tourism Association and Nauders mountain lifts as well as other companies have trained coronavirus representatives who ensure that the current regulations are regularly and immediately implemented.
People with health issues can contact cable car company staff at any time. We have several trained coronavirus representatives.

Frequently asked questions:

In addition to conventional masks that cover the nose and mouth, multifunctional cloths, ski masks, bandanas, buffs, tube scarves, etc. are valid as mouth and nose protection in accordance with current regulations. It is important that the mouth and nose are completely covered, therefore preventing the spread of droplets when talking, coughing and sneezing.

Always keep a minimum distance of 1 metre to people outside of your own household - even when getting on and off.
Wear mouth and nose protection during the entire gondola ride if you are sharing the gondola cabin/chairlift with people outside of your own household and ensure ventilation during the ride. 
Please dispose of your used protective mask or handkerchiefs properly in the station areas and do not leave them in the cable car cabins.

If you have symptoms that could indicate a possible COVID-19 infection (fever, cough, sore throat, loss of taste/smell, ...), please stay in your accommodation and immediately contact your accommodation’s reception or a doctor or the Austrian Health Hotline 1450 (available 24 hours a day)

Currently the situation in Nauders is stable - see offical cases in Tyrol. The development of the number of cases in Austria, in Tyrol and in Nauders are positiv. The previous strict sanctions of the austrian health authority showed an effect. Because of this some sanctions and prescriptions were releaxed and will be releaxed in the future.
