COVID-19 update and restrictions
we would love to welcome you to our beautiful Hanseatic city of Lübeck, but unfortunately that is not possible at the moment. The German authorities have decided to extend the period of the strict lockdown - with some relaxations of the rules - until further notice. We hope that these measures will help to overcome the crisis. Travel has not been banned, but an appeal has been issued by the German authorities to refrain from non-essential trips until 18th April 2021. Hotels and guesthouses in Schleswig-Holstein are not allowed to accept guests who wish to stay for private reasons until 9th May 2021. Business trips are still possible. Shops for daily needs are still open with restrictions in Lübeck, for all other retail shops the “click & meet” applies. Customers have to make an appointment in the store by phone or online. Restaurants, cafés and bars remain closed, the opening of the outdoor gastronomy in Lübeck started on 12th April under certain restrictions.
The current contact restrictions apply: five members of two households are allowed to meet up. Children up to the age of 14 do not count towards this maximum limit. Private meetings are allowed if there are no more than five people from two households.
We’ve put together FAQ relating to the coronavirus and your stay in our city.
