UPDATE: As of 02/18/2020
We’ve gotten word directly from the clubs that June 2021 looks as when clubs will reopen.
SEE OUR COVID TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS PAGE
Germany has gone back to total shutdown, in fact the word is that all businesses are closed except for Grocery store type establishments.
The German government knows the holidays (Xmas and New Years) are super spreader events so they plan to keep the shutdown till after the holidays pass.
While the Covid Vaccines in the US are a major (Light at the end of the tunnel) we’ll have to wait till travel restrictions are lifted and quarantines no longer delay visitors coming and going from Germany till any tour services become available.
Our German contacts have informed us that the vaccines won’t start in Germany till 12/27/2020 and currently there’s a curfew for the public forbidding them to be outside from 9pm – 5am daily.
The clubs in the regions below which had been allowed to open were once again closed due to COVID. It’s expected this will stay in place of at least 2 weeks. The good news is the US announcement of a Vaccine which will be a game changer.
There are 2 issues that need to be resolved before trips can continue and things go back to normal
1. The clubs in the regions below need to have permission from the government to reopen.
A. HESSEN (Clubs forbidden to open)
B. NORTHRHINE-WESTPHALIA (Clubs open for business)
2. German Travel Restrictions need to be lifted for the country you’re traveling from
Below are also other requirements for travel to Germany
A. Germany must allow the country you’re originating from to enter Germany
B. Quarantines which require you to stay in a hotel when you arrive (up to14 Days)
C. Mandatory COVID testing at the airport when you arrive.
D. Registration of visits to clubs or brothels ID, passport need for name and address

In order to limit the virus being brought back by holidaymakers and other travelers, people entering the country from a risk area will from next week have to take a free coronavirus test when they arrive on German soil.

Germany is allowing the region North Rhine-Westphalia to open as of 09/08/2020. Yet another region added to already opened Sachen. Austria, Belgium, Netherlands and Switzerland clubs have resumed business while there may be some restrictions as to the services provided.
