Safety measures: South Tyrol & corona virus
Here you can find answers to questions about the current situation in South Tyrol.
During the last weeks, numerous restrictions in South Tyrol and in Italy have been removed step by step: During your holidays and in everyday life, a long-awaited lightness has returned, allowing you and us to enjoy the dreamlike South Tyrolean nature even more consciously. In South Tyrol and almost all over Italy (except Aosta Valley which is still a yellow zone with nighttime curfew) moving is again possible all day and almost all structures can open again. However, all of us still have to follow several rules – for safe easiness.
Some activities or accesses are bound to the so-called "Green Pass" (CoronaPass South Tyrol). The pass is a vaccination, recovery or test certificate. Also, travelling back from South Tyrol has become a lot easier. However, there are still certain regulations for the arrival, transit and for the journey back home. From July, a general Coronapass or Green Pass will be valid for the EU.
