Please do not call emergency services if you are suffering from a trival disorder, such as a cold, flu or overstrained muscles. Instead, the hotel or lift staff will be able to provide information about doctors and medical care nearby.
Even minor fractures can usually be treated by the local doctors - a visit to the hospital is not absolutely necessary. There is also the possibility of a house call in your hotel - of course, this will be associated with additional costs. It is advisable to check in advance what exactly is covered by your health insurance. The nearest pharmacy is located in Fügen.
