Relax safely on the Hörndl

Our guests' and employees' health has top priority

Big changes have shaped the last few months as COVID-19 continues to influence our lives on a global scale. Safety and individual health have become more important than ever these days – also in the thinking and actions of our cable car company. Therefore, building on the regulations of the Austrian federal government, we have implemented a range of measures to protect all guests and employees.

Ticket Information "3G Rule"

In order to be transported with cable cars, adults and children over 12 years of age must carry and present a valid 3G proof (vaccinated, recovered or tested). This proof is checked at the ticket offices. Tickets are only activated for the duration of the validity of the 3G proof.

For persons of school age, the fully completed “Ninja Pass” or “Holiday Ninja Pass” is equivalent to the 3G proof; this applies provided that the prescribed tests and test intervals (at least 3 tests in 5 consecutive days, of which at least 2 must be PCR tests) are observed with without gaps and consistently produce a negative test result, even on the 6th and 7th day after the first test. The pass and the test results listed therein must be carried and presented when purchasing tickets.

FFP2 masks are recommended

We recommend to wear an FFP2 mask without exhalation valve in enclosed spaces (station buildings, toilets, etc.) and gondolas.

Please keep a distance to others

Regardless of the current legal requirements, we aim to organise the queuing areas to prevent groups of people from standing close together. Please keep a sufficient distance to people outside your own group and wait in the ticket office area until the guest in front of you has left the ticket office.

Disinfect and wash your hands

Please observe the general hygiene rules and wash your hands regularly. Disinfectant dispensers are available in the indoor areas of the bottom and top stations.

Registration at Das Zwölfer

Please be aware that registration is mandatory in restaurants. Guests can check in and out independently with their smartphones by scanning a QR code that includes instructions.

Consumption of Food & Beverages AT das Zwölfer

In accordance with the current COVID-19 regulations, food and drinks may only be consumed when seated at your table.


On entering the restaurant, you must take a test or present a valid negative test result, a vaccination certificate, or confirmation of a previous illness. Guests must register with their name and contact details upon entry. FFP2 masks are mandatory in all areas besides your assigned seating area.
