Updated June 5th, 2020: The government has begun easing the numerous measures introduced to help counter the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) in Austria. For example, all shops, coffee houses, hotels, and restaurants may now open.
Nevertheless, there are still restrictions on public life in place (including requirements for when to wear face masks, modified opening times, social distancing rules etc.).
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 who can enter Austria)
- Official event, service & location websites (particularly for info on cancellations, postponements, changed opening times, temporary closures and behavioural requirements)
Events with up to 100 people are now allowed and this threshold rises to 250 people in July (with increasingly larger audience or visitor numbers being allowed with each new month, subject to certain hygiene rules).
A lot of tourism infrastructure, including most major museums and other tourist sites, should have reopened by now (but expect changes to normal operations and some exceptions).
Check official information sources for accurate, up-to-date advice and information.
