Current information about your visit to Munich

The City of Munich is also affected by the nationwide tightened measures to contain the coronavirus. Here you will find the new regulations which are into force since Wednesday, 7 April.

What you have to keep in mind:

All unnecessary travel should be avoided if possible. This also includes touristic trips. Overnight stays in hotels and accommodation are only offered in exceptional cases and in the context of essential business trips.

The gradual relaxations in contacts, retail and leisure, culture and sports have been suspended again since 14.04.21.

Since 14 April, the following regulations have therefore again been in force for Munich:

There is a nightly curfew between 10 pm and 5 am.

Staying together in public spaces, in privately used rooms and on privately used property is permitted with members of one's own household and one additional person.

Shops may continue to serve customers according to the "Click & Meet" principle. This means that customers are allowed to shop in the shops after making an appointment and with a negative coronary test (max. 48h old PCR or 24h old rapid test) within a specified period of time. Shops for food and articles of daily use remain open without restrictions. The obligation to wear an FFP2 mask exists in all trade.

Museums, exhibitions, memorials, objects of the Bavarian Administration of State Palaces, Gardens and Lakes, the Hellabrunn Zoo and the Botanical Gardens can also not be visited at present.

Bars, clubs, pubs and restaurants remain closed in Munich, but are still allowed to offer take-away food and drinks.

Cultural, leisure and sports facilities such as theatres, operas, concert halls, stages, cinemas, swimming pools and fitness studios will remain closed until further notice. All entertainment and recreational events are cancelled.

Trade fairs, congresses and conferences cannot take place at the moment.


What else is important:

Wearing a mouth and nose protection is obligatory in Munich on public transport and in all shops. Since 18 January an FFP2 mask is obligatory here. Non-compliance will be prosecuted under criminal law.

Until further notice, between 9 and 21 h masks are also compulsory in Munich's pedestrian zone including Sendlinger-Tor-Platz, Rosental between Sendlinger Straße and Rindermarkt, Rindermarkt, Viktualienmarkt, Dienerstraße, Schrammerstraße, Landschaftstraße, in the Tal as well as in the Schützenstraße and in the Stachus basement.
