Coronavirus update

Dear ones!

The coronavirus continues to influence our public and our everyday life and the way we interact. From Monday, 2 Novemberup to 30 November 2020, stricter corona restrictions will apply throughout Germany. Hotels and guesthouses are no longer allowed to welcome guests who wish to stay for private reasons. Business travel, however, is allowed.

In order to reduce the risk of infection, day trips beyond the borders of the individual federal states should also be avoided during this period. Please also avoid any unnecessary contacts. Currently, only two households with a maximum of ten people are allowed to meet.

We will keep you informed about the current situation until we are able to welcome you back. Just remember to keep safe, be responsible and follow the latest coronavirus restrictions when out and about. 

We’ve put together FAQ relating to the coronavirus and your stay in Travemünde.

What is most important:

We kindly ask you to continue to be prudent and to act responsibly.
