In­form­a­tion about the cur­rent situ­ation in NRW

Step by step leisure travel and activities are possible again in North Rhine-Westphalia. While hiking or cycling was already allowed for the citizens of Germany, many leisure activities such as museums, castles, concerts or theatres, swimming areas, amusement parks, zoos or boattrips are opened again now. Furthermore many gastronomic offers, including restaurants and cafés, as well as coach trips and tourist accommodation, for example in Hotels, pensions, apartments or campsites are allowed again. However, we strongly recommend to inform yourself before arrival whether the desired destination is actually open or what restrictions may exist.

Additionally, for reasons of infection protection, there is also an obligation to cover the mouth and nose in many places in the whole area of North Rhine-Westphalia. More over, normally only a maximum of ten people are allowed to travel together. Unfortunately, festivals, other major events and club visits are still prohibited. (Updated: 25.06.2020)
