Welcome back, our dearest guest!

Finally, we are allowed to open our restaurant and hotel for you – whether you are a leisure guest or coming for business purposes. In order to be able to do so, we need to follow a few regulations – please find below an overview (Information as of June 28, 2021)

Restaurant:

  • If you have lately visited a restaurant in Germany you know this regulation already – we have to request and keep your contact information. We are more than happy to use the LUCA APP to do so digitally.
  • You don’t need any test or vaccination certificate any more
  • As long as you are not sitting at a table, wearing a face mask is required

For the seating arrangements the following regulations apply:

  • Up to 15 persons from up to 4 different housholds
  • Children up to 14 years are not counted
  • Also people who are tested, fully vaccinated or recovered (for details see the regulations for higher incidence rates below) are not counted
  • Up to 200 Persons may have a private party together if they all are fully vaccinated, recovered or tested (for details you can find an overview below)

These regulations apply as long as the incidence rate stays below 35
