Information about the Coronavirus
In general, all tourism-related facilities and offers in North Rhine-Westphalia are open without restrictions or special requirements. However, some facilities, such as some museums, require you to wear a mask. It is also not ruled out that a 3G proof will be requested in individual cases. Therefore, we recommend that you always have a mask with you and that you inform yourself directly about possible requirements before your visit to the tourism provider. If you want to use busses or trains, you have to wear a mask in any case.
Up-to-date information about the Corona virus can be found on the website of the North Rhine-Westphalian State Chancellery at www.land.nrw/corona. The current Corona protection regulation can also be found there. For questions of a non-medical nature, the state government has also set up a citizens' telephone number: +49 211 / 9119-1001.
When entering Germany, there is a 3G proof requirement. No matter which means of transport is used on entry or return: You must present a negative test result, proof of vaccination or proof of recovery. Children under twelve years of age are exempt. Stricter rules apply when entering from foreign high-risk areas or virus variant areas. Detailed information can be found on the website of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) at www.rki.de. However, children under the age of six do not have to be quarantined when entering the country; children between six and twelve can end the quarantine directly by testing negative.
Be sure to take care of yourself! To plan your upcoming trips to North Rhine-Westphalia, you will find many suggestions on our website. We are looking forward to seeing you!
