+++ The current situation in Berlin +++


From Saturday, 24 April, the nationwide emergency brake (Notbremse) will come into effect in Berlin, and in some cases even somewhat stricter rules will apply - for the time being from 1 May up to and including 16 May. Despite everything, you may - and should - of course continue to enjoy spring and the beautiful sides of Berlin. We show you where you can experience the capital in a safe and relaxed way.

From Saturday, the following rules will apply in Berlin:


  • The emergency brake rules apply if the threshold of 100 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants is exceeded in seven days on each of three consecutive days.
  • A curfew applies between 10 pm and 5 am. Jogging or walking alone is allowed until midnight.
  • A maximum of one household plus one other person is allowed indoors as well as outdoors. Children under 14 are exempt.
  • Many shops must close at an incidence of 150, although collection of ordered goods remains permitted.
  • Theatres, operas, concert halls, museums, exhibitions and memorials must close.
  • Cable cars, river and lake cruises for excursions, tourist rail and bus services and river cruises will also be closed.
  • Restaurants, including those with outdoor seating, continue to be closed. The collection and delivery of food is permitted.
  • For more infromation: The Governing Mayor of Berlin - Senate Chancellery - Corona virus information

Please continue to behave responsibly, stay healthy and take care of yourself and your loved ones!
