Last update: June 4, 2020
The number of people diagnosed with Covid-19 has been declining in Austria for some time now, and so the country is on its way back to normal.
You can move freely in nature, play sports, visit parks and travel to other parts of the country - for example, take a trip to Salzburg. Shops, shopping centres as well as restaurants and cafés are open and can be visited by the public.
Museums all over the country have been reopened and you can enjoy culture and art again. There is also a timetable for the coming weeks so that cultural events can take place again. Events for up to 100 people are possible since end of May, also cinemas and gyms have re-opened. Nothing should stand in the way of your visit to a cultural event or enjoying your leisure time in Vienna this summer.
The safety of all course participants and employees is our top priority. In the implementation of our safety guidelines for adults 16+ and our Holiday Course 16-19 years, the highest level of student safety is key and group sizes and physical distance are designed in accordance with the applicable regulations. It is important to adhered to the physical distance guidelines and to wear a mouth-nose-protection at some indoor venues.
We are happy to inform you that our Holiday Course 16-19 will take place this summer in Vienna!
Unfortunately, we have to inform you that the minimum number of 50 participants of our Summer School 12-17 has not been reached. Therefore, we have to cancel the Summer School 2020 in Vienna. But the good news is, that you can still learn German with ActiLingua Academy this summer! Our German courses for adults 16+ will take place again at ActiLingua Academy in Vienna from June 29, 2020.
