Coronavirus update

Dear ones!

The German authorities have decided to extend the lockdown period until 7th March 2021. We hope that these drastic measures will help to overcome the crisis and enable a good start into the new year. Travel has not been banned, but an appeal has been issued by the German authorities to refrain from non-essential trips. Hotels and guesthouses throughout Germany are no longer allowed to accept guests who wish to stay for private reasons. Business trips are still possible. The retail trade, with the exception of shops for daily needs are closed. Restaurants, cafés and bars will remain closed as well. This regulation applies until the 7th March 2021. An extension is possible.

Contacts must be greatly reduced. Until 7th March 2021 one household is allowed to invite and meet only one person from another household. Children under the age of 14 years are excluded from this rule. They are seen as a unit with their parents.
