The “AGES dashboard“ of the Austrian Ministry of Health provides a daily updated overview of the current epidemiological situation in the individual districts in Austria. The district of Hermagor currently has a commendable incidence rate per 100,000 inhabitants, despite its comparatively small population (Hermagor: approx. 18,000). This makes it one of the safest districts in the country, as it was in the early summer of the previous year. 

Welcome zest for life! Boundless freedom & a huge package of moments of happiness between swimming and mountain experiences are waiting to be discovered by you. Here you will find useful information on


The greatest possible planning security for our guests is very important to us in the Nassfeld-Pressegger See region. Many businesses have therefore already relaxed their cancellation terms and are thus reacting to the current situation, which naturally brings with it an increased need for flexibility.

However, in the case of individual trips (unlike package tours), there is no explicit legally regulated right of cancellation, e.g. in case of a travel warning. Please enquire directly with the accommodation of your choice about specific cancellation terms before booking.

The holiday region of Carinthia has already made excellent preparations for the coming summer season. In order to reduce the number of new infections, the Austrian Federal Government has decided to impose restrictions on public life. The measures and restrictions are temporary and also affect our tourism industry. The aim is to welcome guests back as soon as possible for a safe and relaxed holiday in our accommodations, catering establishments and leisure facilities. The most frequently asked questions with regard to tourism are answered here.
