Holiday in Germany during COVID-19: What you need to know about visiting Germany
We can't wait to have normality back and be able to book a trip to Germany! We always encourage our German students to book a holiday in Germany to use what they have learned in class. You will quickly improve your German language skills while having a great time in Germany visiting the beautiful castles, museums, memorials or amusement parks. Especially Germany's castles are visitor magnets but the coronavirus has forced them to remain their doors closed for weeks now.
Travel to Germany is once again possible. The list of Germany's re-opened sights and tourist attractions is long. BUT: There are significant restrictions.
In Germany, the 16 states (Bundesländer) are allowed to decide individually how they implement their restrictions and new regulations. You can find up-to-date information on the regulations of the individual federal states here.
There are also new restrictions for guided tours. Neuschwanstein Castle - on the picture - is one of the most popular German tourist destinations. Around 1,5 Million people visit the castle each year. Currently and because of the coronavirus, the castle has limited its number of visitors to 10% of its pre-pandemic capacity.
Did you know that Neuschwanstein Castle is actually Germany's most famous castle? It is located near the town of Füssen in beautiful Bavaria and you should add it to your list for end of 2020 or 2021. We look forward to this crisis to end so we can all plan our trips and visit Germany!
