Covid-19

Munich: COVID restrictions and current information about your visit

In Bavaria, and thus also in the state capital Munich, the classification according to incidence values will be replaced by a hospital scale as of 2 September. The number of corona patients admitted to hospitals is now decisive for the corona rules. The incidence value continues to determine the 3G rule: from an incidence of over 35, it will apply in all indoor areas from now on. Only those who have been vaccinated, recently recovered from Corona or tested negative are allowed to visit museums, cinemas, concerts and restaurants. With the new regulation, the general contact restrictions, as well as the upper limit for events, no longer apply. Clubs and bars are expected to reopen in October.

What you have to keep in mind:

FFP2 masks are no longer mandatory. Where mouth-nose protection is mandatory, wearing a medical mask is sufficient from now on.

In hotels and holiday flats and on campsites, the 3G rule applies: Overnight guests must show proof that they have been vaccinated, recovered or tested upon arrival. Those who are not vaccinated or recovering from Corona are required to present a negative test every 72 hours.

Munich's indoor and outdoor dining areas and beer gardens are open to guests. The Corona-related curfew at 1 a.m. does not apply. For all indoor areas, the 3G rule applies, according to which only vaccinated, recovered or tested persons are admitted, and masks are compulsory outside one's own table. The mask requirement will be waived in outdoor dining areas.

The 3G rule is extended to indoor areas in the entire cultural and sports sector. This affects museums, theatres, cinemas, concert venues, cinemas and memorials, as well as sports facilities, gyms, baths, saunas, thermal baths, indoor playgrounds, cable cars and excursion boats, leisure facilities and tourist coach transport.

 Private premises, shops and public transport are exempt from the 3G rule.

Shops are open for normal customer traffic. There are no longer any limits on the number of people who can be in the shop at any one time. Masks are still compulsory in shops.

The previous upper limits on the number of people for private and public events are no longer applicable. If more than 1000 participants* come together, the 3G rule applies in all indoor and outdoor areas of the event, regardless of incidence.

Outdoor city and guest tours do not require a test certificate.

For trade fairs, congresses and conferences, the area-based visitor limit no longer applies, as it does in the retail sector. From now on, a daily limit of 50,000 visitors will apply. 3G also applies here.

Bars and discotheques are expected to be allowed to reopen in October in compliance with the 3G rule.

What else is important:

Wearing a mouth-nose protection is compulsory in Munich in public transport and in all shops. Since 2 September, wearing an FFP2 mask is no longer compulsory. It can be replaced by a medical mask. Non-compliance will be prosecuted.

The ban on the consumption of alcohol in the open air in the city centre has been lifted, but has been replaced in each case by a ban on glass bottles, jugs etc. at night. You can find out the exact regulations on the city portal muenchen.de.

The previous hygiene and prevention regulations still apply: Please continue to maintain a safety distance of at least one and a half meters from other people. You should also make sure that you observe the cough and sneeze etiquette and wash your hands several times a day.
