Dear Cologne visitor,
the official German Corona Warning App for the fight against the Corona virus is available. All information about the free app can be found here: Corona-Warn-App. The download is voluntary: App-Store | Google Play Store. Support us in our fight against Corona.
In all commercial, cultural and leisure facilities with public and customer traffic as well as in passenger transport, but also in medical practices and similar health care facilities, a mouth and nose cover must be worn. Anyone who disregards the obligation to wear a mask is not allowed to use the corresponding services or enter facilities.
Exceptions from the mask duty: The mask duty does not apply to children who do not go to school yet. Those who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons are exempt from the obligation to wear a mask. In addition, the mask can be taken off temporarily for certain reasons, for example to communicate with a deaf or hearing impaired person.
Detailed information on safe travel can be found in the federal "Tourism Guide": www.tourismus-wegweiser.de. (Only in German).
Persons entering the country from risk areas must generally remain in domestic quarantine for 14 days. The risk areas are defined by the German government and published by the Robert Koch Institute. An overview of the current risk areas can be found here: risk areas.
The quarantine obligation does not apply if there is a negative corona test that was carried out no more than 48 hours before entry. The time at which the test result is determined is decisive for the deadline. The test can also be done in Germany; however, the quarantine rules must be followed until the negative result is obtained.
You can get updates on the situation on site here or via our social media channels.
