Status and Outlook
At this point in time, summer 2022, nobody knows what the pandemic situation will be in May of 2023.
We will update this page as things develop, this is our take as of late August 2022.
- At the moment, the government plan is to avoid lockdowns and restrictions on everyday life and we count on this in our event planning.
- If you arrive from other countries, and need to return there: There have in the past been requirements for either vaccination or testing before travel, both from Germany and possibly your home country.
For cross-border travel, please monitor your local regulations and remember to carry the required documentation.
- Medical/FFP2/N95 masks are currently required for long distance train travel and flights and are current planning for October 22-April 23. An extension of a mask mandate to local public transport on a state and local level seems very likely.
- If you or a family member should fall ill, please make sure to take out travel cancellation/travel curtailment insurance that covers your bookings. Arriving from abroad, please make sure you have sufficient travel health insurance.
We will of course observe both government and local authority mandates, also some locations we plan to visit might require mandatory masking. For events where distancing cannot be observed, we may ask you to wear a mask for your protection and that of other participants.
Self test kits are currently widely available in pharmacies, drug stores and some supermarkets. Testing stations (payable) exist as of summer 2022 but the regulatory basis for those might change by next year.
We will update this information on the COVID situation as things develop and the event approaches.
