Updated July 1st, 2020: The government has eased many of the numerous measures introduced to help counter the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) in Austria. For example, all shops, coffee houses, hotels, restaurants, swimming pools and fitness centres may now open.
Almost all tourism infrastructure, including most major museums and other tourist sites, has reopened (but expect possible changes to normal operations and some continuing closures).
Nevertheless, there are still some restrictions on public life in place (for example, face masks are required on public transport).
As a private individual, I’m not qualified to offer you travel or medical advice, so check:
- The official tourism website, which has regular updates in English for those planning (or on) a trip to Vienna, with various links to further information of use to travellers and visitors
- Your government’s travel advisory pages (in particular, there are continuing restrictions on entry to Austria from certain countries)
- Official event, service & location websites (particularly for info on cancellations, postponements, changed opening times, temporary closures and behavioural requirements)
Public events with up to 250 (indoors) and 500 (outdoors) people are now allowed, with increasingly larger audience or visitor numbers being permitted with each new month, subject to certain hygiene rules. At the time of writing, the intention is to allow 5000 (indoors) and 10000 (outdoors) people to attend public events from September.
