Austria reopens first during COVID-19 crisis.
On March 8, the Italian government was the first European that issued a lock down degree. As the virus spread quickly across the globe governments around the Europe were forced to follow. Museums and other tourist attractions closed for months. The first country to open museums again is Austria. The country took quick and drastic measures against the spread of the virus and that strategy has seemingly paid off. Famous museums in Vienna are allowed to open again on May 15.
The situation in Austria and other countries is still developing. The Austrian government for example announces planned reopening but always reserves the right to take a step back if the virus spreads quickly again. Our overview checks the latest situation and the overview is updated where needed.
