Measures for preventing the spread of COVID-19 at our excursion destinations
The rules for preventing COVID-19 apply at the VERBUND excursion destinations. In particular, we ask our guests to follow the rules on social distancing and – where required – to wear a mask (e.g. in enclosed rooms). Where possible, we will support you in keeping the rules – please also help us with this. The situation makes it necessary to adjust procedures, activities and products. We are doing our best to create an optimal visitor experience and apologise in advance if some of the products are not available in the usual form. The announcements and events can only take place if they can be implemented on a legal and organisational basis.
