Holiday fun with Covid-19

With personal responsibility together against Covid 19

To ensure that you can spend your family vacation at Baby- und Kinderhotel Habachklause as carefree as possible, we have developed comprehensive measures against Covid-19. We adhere to the recommendations and guidelines of the Austrian federal government.

In our 4-star Familotel Habachklause delightful vacation wonders await the whole family, in every season. Nestled between the Hohe Tauern National Park and the Kitzbühel Alps lies our wonderful vacation region - the Wildkogel Arena. The absolute natural paradise can be found right on our doorstep. In winter and spring, snowy views enchant with skiing, cross-country skiing and tobogganing pleasure as well as with sporty ski tours. Summer and autumn delight with breathtaking mountain scenery during leisurely family hikes and digging for hidden emeralds in the famous Habachtal, which gives us our name and also begins directly behind the hotel.

So pack your bags, get in the car and off you go to the Valley of Emeralds - only about 2 hours drive from Munich/Salzburg/Innsbruck.

All public areas are thoroughly cleaned daily. For hygiene we have used three of our most important suppliers: the companies Ecolab, Ada and Hollu Systemhygiene GmbH. They advise and train our team with the right measure and handling for cleaning and disinfection.

During the cleaning in the room our employees do not wear FFP2 masks - except when they come into direct contact with you and cannot keep the minimum distance.
