Hygiene is a top priority at the Schick Restaurants

Your safety is very important to us and we are doing everything we can to ensure you have a happy and healthy stay!

With regard to the current challenges, we are following the official information and guidelines of the Austrian federal government.

Our top priority is the health of our guests and our employees.

We take the standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and are investing a great deal of money to ensure the safety of our guests and the employees. The health and safety measures have been designed to cover a wide range of viruses and other pathogens and include every measure from hand washing hygiene and requirements for cleaning products to cleaning procedures for guest rooms and public areas.

The employees who are healthy, safe and well trained are vitally important for effective cleaning programs.
