Mulled wine in good company despite the Christmas market ban.

A landlord in Augsburg offers this - but without 2G and other rules.

That even called the police on the scene.

Augsburg - For almost a week, the rule in Bavaria that only 2G is allowed in the catering trade has been in effect.

So only those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered are allowed to go to the restaurant.

The situation is apparently a bit more difficult outdoors.

A restaurateur in Augsburg * took advantage of this.

The innkeeper, Bernhard Spielberger, known as the “Corona rebel”, organized a snack and mulled wine sale on the terrace of his restaurant.

In doing so, he deliberately avoided the common corona rules.

Augsburger Wirt sells mulled wine - up to 500 guests on site

As the

Augsburger Allgemeine

reports, there was a lot of activity on the weekend in front of the Palladio restaurant in the Augsburg district of Kriegshaber.

It was probably pretty tight, they say.

Around 500 guests are said to have been there on Friday evening alone.

And Spielberger expressly received everyone who wanted to come.

His invitation stated that unvaccinated and vaccinated people were equally welcome.

2G, a mask requirement or distance rule was waived on the terrace.

That even called the police * on the scene.

The arrived with three team buses, but had to leave without having achieved anything because there was probably no legal basis to restrict operations, the daily newspaper said.

In the past, landlord Spielberger was particularly noticeable because he often considered measures taken by the state and city government to be pointless and took legal action against them.

"I'm not a corona denier," he says of himself.

That would also be difficult because he was already infected with the virus.

Since then he has been considered to have recovered.

Now a lawsuit has been dropped by him, in which he wanted to take action against the loss of status as a recovered person after six months.

He himself has regular tests and still has enough antibodies.

In the case of vaccinated people, this is not checked, the

Augsburg host wants to continue even with a lockdown

The rebellious restaurateur meanwhile continues to defend his action. Because the Christmas markets were canceled, he wanted to offer people a replacement. "You can finally talk about other things like Corona * and look each other in the face again," says the host of the Augsburger Allgemeine. He also finds that there is virtually no risk outdoors, although it has been proven that people can get infected by droplet infection in dense crowds outdoors.

Spielberger also wants to continue, should Augsburg become a corona hotspot and an incidence of over 1000 (as of November 29, 544.6).

Then gastronomic establishments would have to close completely.

Only to-go sales would still be permitted.

No problem for the landlord.

Then people should just meet to eat in a neighboring meadow.

This also belongs to Spielberger.
