Covid-19 Crisis

Coronavirus entry pass no longer needed

restaurants and bars are open until 01:00

From Friday 25 February onwards, normal opening hours will apply everywhere again, including the night catering sector.

Restaurants, bars (including outdoor terraces), stores, theatres, cinemas, museums and other attractions are open but have limited opening hours until 25 February. They are now allowed to stay open until 01:00.

Late night bars, dance and night clubs and music stages are open again. Festival and events are also allowed again.

The coronavirus entry pass is no longer needed anywhere except at indoor venues where more than 500 people gather without a fixed seat. For access to such events, like a big party in a nightclub, everyone - vaccinated or not - has to be tested.

The requirement to wear a mouth mask is abolished as of 25 February, with the exception of public transport. From that date onwards, a distance of 1.5 metres no longer needs to be maintained anywhere.

Coronavirus entry pass

You can generate a coronavirus entry pass using the CoronaCheck app on your mobile phone. You can get a coronavirus entry pass if you are fully vaccinated, have valid proof of recovery or a negative result from a coronavirus test taken less than 24 hours before entry. For people without proof of vaccination or recovery, getting tested will remain free of charge.

More easing of restrictions is expected on 15 March.


Avoid public transport and take a bike

Wearing a mouth mask on public transport and taxis is still mandatory. Travel by public transport only when there is no other option.

Rent a bike or go on foot!
