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.
