"If Europe were once united in the sharing of its common inheritance, there would be no limit to the happiness, to the prosperity and glory which its three or four hundred million people would enjoy. ... We must build a kind of United States of Europe. . . . . ."

Winston Churchill, Zurich, I9th September 1946


2G / 2G+ / 3G rules

As the ongoing pandemic develops the rules are regularly adjusted. Currently, most restaurants, bars and authorities require proof of Covid 19 protection:

2G: vaccinated/recovered

2G+: vaccinated/recovered + tested

3G: vaccinated/recovered/tested

For admission the actual status is regularly verified together with an identity card. Proof of the actual status can be made by paper certificates or by one of the admissibile electronic apps: the so called “CovPass“ – the digital or paper certificate that shows people have been vaccinated, tested negative or recovered from covid-19. The same functions can be used with "Corona Warn App".

It is equivalent to the EU Covid 19 Pass so, please, verify if your national vaccination certificate app is accepted in Germany or download it and scan your vaccination, test or recovery certificates prior to entering Germany.
