Currently everything depends on the infection rates of the country you’re traveling from
NOTE: ALL PARTIES TRAVELING WITH OUR GROUPS MUST BE VACCINATED, NO EXCEPTIONS
While Omicrom has spread and infections are at an all time high. Omicrom is said to not be as deadly so people are being infected and recovering in about 2 weeks. An example is
how Omicrom numbers peaked in S. Africa and are now dropping. If this a sign of the future we should be looking at going back to somewhat normal travel again in March 2022.
US Travelers to Germany have been DROPPED from the safe travel list for the EU

The situation seems to be getting better as the majority of clubs have been allowed to open.
The key now is quarantine issues and testing. What we mean is while about 80% of the clubs have opened guests need to take precautions to avoid being stuck in Germany for 10-14 days. Should you test positive you will be forced at your own expense to stay isolated in a hotel room up to 14 days at your own cost before you are allowed to board your flight home.
Entry and Exit Requirements
Are U.S. citizens permitted to enter? Yes. As of June 20, 2021, residents of the United States are allowed to enter Germany for all purposes.
Digital Registration on Entry:
Persons entering Germany who have spent time in an RKI-designated high-risk or virus-variant area in the 10 days prior to entry are required to submit a digital registration on entry .
As of August 15, 2021, the United States has been designated as a high-risk area.
Is a negative COVID-19 test (PCR and/or serology) required for entry?
Effective August 1, 2021, all travelers ages 12 and older must submit proof of vaccination (with a vaccine listed on this website ), proof of recovery from COVID-19 in the last 6 month, or a negative COVID-19 test in order to enter by air, land, or sea.
Both PCR and rapid antigen tests are accepted; a PCR test must have been taken less than 72 hours prior to entry to Germany, a rapid antigen test less than 48 hours prior to entry.
Travelers who have been in a virus-variant area in the last 10 days must present a negative test, regardless of vaccination or recovery status.
Please see this link for more details.
Are health screening procedures in place at airports and other ports of entry? YES.
The North-Rhine Westphalia (NRW) region has allowed clubs to open. However this does NOT mean all the clubs in the region are open or have plans to open.
Golden Time Bruggen and Living Room Kaarst for example will not open nor do they have plans to open as of yet. They’re playing it safe which is the responsible thing to do. It’s highly advised not to jump the gun and race off to Germany at the moment. We’re already seeing a big number of guests flocking to the clubs from France, Belgium, Spain and Italy. Some of these countries have a higher risk of the new Delta Variant. The UK is a perfect example of what to expect.
The risk and chance of reinfection and a longer shut down of all clubs is a real issue and may do more damage than good.
Clubs are required to check and verify negative test results done within 36 hours, vaccination proof (Digital vaccination proof may also be required). Some clubs doing temperature testing as well as on-site testing. Visitors coming from high infection rate countries or destinations may be turned away or scrutinized. We saw this with SARS a decade ago as women refused to service Asian customers regardless of where they’re from.
TRAVEL TO AND FROM GERMANY:
Should you be tested and show a positive result you’ll be required to quarantine for 10-14 days and may be denied your flight home. At your own expense and hotel.
Slowly we’re seeing some positive change in Germany.
One region (Lower Saxony) has allowed FKK Style clubs to open with hygiene regulations. Several other clubs are opening this week if not already open. This was a result of businesses taking legal action.
All travelers will need Digital Registration on Entry so make sure you register prior to travel so you are well aware of the requirements and rules.
A few clubs have announced their opening June 15, 2021 (See your guide for how this affects your tour)
The biggest question we get is?
When will the clubs open or are the clubs open?
Currently the clubs in:
The situation in Germany is a catch 22
1. People need to be able to freely travel to and from Germany. Which means no quarantines coming or going from Germany.
2. The clubs open in full capacity with full services.
Germany has stated as written below that they will allow vaccinated tourists to enter Germany the second week of June 2021. (Not all countries) See below
Club management opinions are divided and have informed us they’ll open when the infection rate stats drop to a specific level. Some clubs are even suggesting they’ll open second or third week of June 2021
This all comes down to government decisions.
Thus we need to take into consideration the above before we can make any firm plans.
Germany Will Allow Vaccinated Travelers to Skip Quarantine and Testing
The German government plans to allow visitors who have been vaccinated against or recovered from COVID-19 to skip mandatory testing and quarantines.
It also will permit travelers who test negative for COVID-19 to leave quarantine early. German lawmakers approved the changes on Wednesday, the Associated Press reported, noting that the relaxed restrictions won’t apply to travelers from countries where variants of concern are clustered.
The loosening of travel restrictions in Germany comes as Bavaria is reopening its outdoor beer gardens. Beer gardens in Munich — home of the world-famous Oktoberfest — were set to reopen on Wednesday, the AP reported. Oktoberfest, Germany’s best-known cultural celebration, was canceled again this year.
Still, for an increasing number of vaccinated Germans, summer vacations are on the horizon as COVID-19 caseloads fall in parts of Europe.
Merkel Hopeful on Europe Summer Travel Even Without Vaccine
While the European Union is developing a vaccine certificate valid throughout the 27-nation bloc, summer vacations abroad should be possible again even for people who haven’t had their shots against the coronavirus, she said.

Europe Reopening to Americans DETAILS
Germany has announced that the summer of 2021 they’ll allow traveler’s to enter Germany
This means the travel restrictions for Germany will be lifted if there are no other issues before the summer
Summer occurs on Sunday, June 20, marking the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere
American tourists who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be able to visit the European Union over the summer, the head of the bloc’s executive body said in an interview with The New York Times on Sunday, more than a year after shutting down nonessential travel from most countries to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
The fast pace of vaccination in the United States, and advanced talks between authorities there and the European Union over how to make vaccine certificates acceptable as proof of immunity for visitors, will enable the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union, to recommend a switch in policy that could see trans-Atlantic leisure travel restored.
“The Americans, as far as I can see, use European Medicines Agency-approved vaccines,” Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission, said Sunday in an interview with The Times in Brussels. “This will enable free movement and the travel to the European Union.

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. Oddly we’ve been told that China is allowed to travel to and from Germany but the US is still on the forbidden travel list. This is the main hurdle for most of out guests Everything will depend on travel restrictions to and from Germany which may cause a 14 day hotel stay for self isolation when traveling to Germany.

Time left till the next 6 and 8 Day Group tour
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.
