The new entry rules now apply to Bavaria's motorways.

In most places, the checks at the start of the holiday went smoothly.

The federal police found one outlier.


Munich / Kiefersfelden - The control station has been on the Inntal motorway near Kiefersfelden since 2015.

At that time, the main concern was to prevent illegal entry.

Since the night of Sunday, the federal police officers have been doing their random checks there to ensure that the corona numbers do not shoot up again after the travel time.

Because since midnight from Saturday to Sunday, the new entry rules for travelers returning have been checked there.

"It's been going really well so far," said Yvonne Oppermann, spokeswoman for the Rosenheim Federal Police, on the phone on Sunday.

She is on site in Kiefersfelden, and throughout the night, the officials asked those returning from their journeys during their random checks for the now mandatory test, vaccination or convalescence certificate.

Test obligation for travelers returning: Many violations on A3 near Passau

"Those returning from the trip are very well prepared, so far everyone has had their certificates with them," says Oppermann.

"Many people hold the documents out to us without asking when we approach the cars in our control station." It looked different on the A3 near Passau.

There, the federal police found 110 violations during 220 controls, as spokesman Holger Rosenberger confirmed in the evening.

If an unvaccinated returnee cannot show a negative corona test, the officials inform the responsible health department.

In addition, the person will be referred to a nearby test site to catch up on the smear.

The veil investigators of the Bavarian border police are also checking the new entry rules, as Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) emphasized yesterday.

The Bavarian riot police will also support the officers at the border.

According to the Federal Police, the evidence must also be shown on trains.

Mega traffic jam at the beginning of the holiday in Bavaria: "Unfortunately, the warnings have been confirmed"

For many drivers, traveling to or from the weekend was more than a game of patience. Especially on Saturday, the traffic was jammed for kilometers. "Unfortunately, the warnings have been confirmed," said a spokesman for the ADAC yesterday. Meanwhile, on the A8 from Munich to Salzburg from the Hofoldinger Forst to the Walserberg border crossing. Anyone who finally reached the Alpine republic after hours at a snail's pace was stuck in the next sheet metal avalanche on the Tauern Autobahn.

Ten kilometers of traffic jams had formed in front of the toll stations for the Tauern and Karawanken tunnels.

Anyone who finally got through block processing at the tunnels only had the next stop-and-go ahead of them: at the crossings from Slovenia to Croatia.

On the night of Friday four hours and longer were noted.

And in Italy the authorities had expected a new traffic record early on Saturday on the Brenner motorway.

Munich Airport: Control of the corona tests already routine

Yesterday the situation relaxed only slightly: Again there were traffic jams for miles between Munich and the Inntal triangle and on towards Salzburg.

In the opposite direction, there was also return traffic to the north.

At Munich Airport, on the other hand, checking the corona tests is already routine.

Because there the test obligation for unvaccinated travelers returning has been valid for a long time.

"There are very well-established procedures here," said an airport spokesman yesterday.

Holidaymakers must present a negative PCR or antigen test to the airline before they leave for their home country.

It worked well for Anita Henzel and Kevin Riegel from Dillingen (both 21), who landed at the Erdinger Moos airport yesterday.

"We have now been in Izmir, Turkey for a week," says Riegel.

“Since we both haven't been double vaccinated yet, we had to do a quick test in the hotel for 20 euros.

But luckily our tour operator organized that for us. "
