FAQs

Can I spend my holiday in Lübeck?

Yes, hotels, pensions, holiday apartments and campsites are allowed to accommodate guests who are travelling for private reasons. Each overnight guest must present a negative test upon arrival (not older than 48 hours PCR test / rapid test). Every 72 hours further evidence must be provided. The 72 hours period starts when you are tested at home ( not upon arrival in Lübeck). Alternatively, as an overnight guest, you can provide evidence that you have recovered (for at least 28 days and maximum 6 months ago) or have been fully vaccinated at least 14 days ago. Children aged under 6 years do not need to take a test. For further information on the proof of recovery / tested / vaccinated click here.

How do I prove my vaccination/recovery status?

Proof of vaccination status needs to be provided by presentation of the vaccination card or vaccination certificate. Until electronic identification systems become available, you must carry your vaccination card or certificate and present it on request if you wish to take advantage of these facilities.

A person who has been infected with SARS-CoV-2 for at least 28 days and maximum 6 months ago is considered to have recovered. Evidence of recovery status is provided by a positive PCR test result with a date that is at least 28 days old and is not older than 6 months.

You are welcome to camp again in Lübeck, booking in advance is required. The demand is high!

Additional evidence must be provided every 72 hours. The 72 hours period starts when you are tested at home (not upon arrival in Lübeck).

Yes, you are welcome! Please, make sure not to visit “hotspots” with too many people, wear your mask wherever required and follow the rules.
