The Whitsun vacation in Germany is within reach: More and more federal states are now announcing easing of tourism.

Here are the plans at a glance.

Suddenly everything happens in quick succession: While there was no opening perspective for the hotel and catering industry on the part of politicians for months, several federal states want to relax the rules for the tourism and leisure sector - preferably before Whitsun *.

Vacation in Germany: An overview of the planned easing of the federal states

  • Baden-Württemberg

    : If the number of corona infections is correspondingly low, according to Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann it is possible to open beer gardens and hotel areas during the Whitsun holidays. "If you combine that again with a corresponding test strategy, with the presentation of the vaccination card when you are fully vaccinated, then you can take steps in this direction," he said, according to a report by the German Press Agency in Stuttgart. Health Minister Manne Lucha explains that the 7-day incidence in counties and regions must be below 100 on five days. From 100 the federal emergency brake applies. Openings as part of model projects are also conceivable.

  • Bavaria

    : The cabinet has already decided on extensive opening steps for districts and urban districts with a stable incidence of less than 100.

    Hotels, holiday apartments and campsites will be allowed to reopen from May 21st

    As early as Monday (May 10), if the incidence is stable below 100, outdoor restaurants, theaters, concert and opera houses and cinemas are allowed to open.

    However, hygiene concepts as well as mask and test requirements apply.

    In addition, fixed appointments must be booked.

  • Berlin and Brandenburg

    : Berlin wants to decide in close coordination with Brandenburg whether outdoor areas of cafes and restaurants should be opened on Whitsun.

    However, there is still no talk of opening up hotels and easing them for tourism.

  • Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania

    : Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has been very strict when it comes to tourism in recent months. Day tourists from other federal states were regularly expelled. Now day trips should be allowed again - as long as the travelers are fully vaccinated or they are second home owners. Tourist overnight stays in hotels, guest houses, holiday apartments or campsites should, however, continue to be prohibited. Please note: If families want to travel, the entire family must be fully vaccinated.

  • Lower Saxony

    : Lower Saxony also wants to relax from Monday (May 10) with a step-by-step plan. Then in districts and large cities with a stable 7-day incidence below 100, the opening of trade, gastronomy, tourism and cultural events in the open air is allowed, explained Prime Minister Stephan Weil according to dpa. For the first three weeks, however, tourism is only allowed to open to residents of Lower Saxony. Soon afterwards, other German citizens and international travelers should also be able to go on vacation in Lower Saxony. The opening strategy includes negative rapid tests or proof of vaccination.

  • Saxony

    : If the incidence is below 100, Saxony wants to allow overnight stays on campsites and in holiday apartments.

    The government relies on contact recording.

    Only when the incidence value falls below 50 should overnight stays in hotels and pensions be allowed.

    A booking, a negative test and contact recording are required.

    The outdoor areas of restaurants should then be allowed to reopen under certain conditions.

  • Saxony-Anhalt

    : From next week, if the number of infections is low, outdoor restaurants and certain tourist offers are to be allowed again.

    The outdoor areas of swimming pools should also be allowed to reopen.

    According to Minister of Economics Armin Willingmann, model projects could also open up interior areas - for example in art, culture and the hotel industry.

  • Thuringia

    : In Thuringia, too, loosening is possible with a stable incidence of less than 100.

    On Thursday (May 6th) an ordinance is to come into force that provides for automatic opening steps: for example for outdoor catering, camping or booking holiday homes.
