Corona Updates

Our cancellation conditions for the winter season 2020/2021:

Due to the special situation, during the winter season you can cancel your stay with us free of charge until the last day if one of the following reasons comes into effect:

  • Official travel warning for our region Saalfelden Leogang
  • Border closure due to Covid-19
  • Closure of the Leoganger Bergbahnen due to Covid-19 (if the ski operation in Leogang will be stopped)
Otherwise our usual standard cancellation conditions according to the Austrian Hotel Regulations apply. As a matter of principle, we always recommend to take out travel insurance, as unforeseeable reasons often arise that you have to cancel your long-awaited holiday short-term. This is then covered by the insurance. This way you can look forward to the booked trip with a safe feeling.

General cancellation conditions:

  • Up to two weeks before start of journey (not valid during main season: Christmas & New Year's Eve, winter main season, carnival, Easter)

Cancellation and insurance cover:

As long as the Covid-19 situation remains as steady as it is at the moment, full cancellation and trip interruption insurance cover will apply again. There is cover in the event that an insured guest is unable to commence or has to interrupt the trip:

  • because an elevated temperature is measured, even if a later test result is negative, or he/she has been tested positive for COVID-19 without showing symptoms.
  • because he/she has COVID-19 symptoms.
  • because a close relative or a person living in the same household is ill with COVID-19 and an urgent presence is required.
  • because a close relative or a person living in the common household is suffering from COVID-19 and the guest must therefore be quarantined.


As a family business with over 60 employees, we plan and count on our reservations, so we thank you in advance for your understanding.

Your family Herbst
