Due to the renewed increase in corona cases in Germany, the federal and state governments have agreed on uniform measures to contain Covid19. As you probably do yourself, we have to adjust to the situation every day and are watching the news very carefully.  With the following information about the regulations we would like to make your travel planning easier and perhaps answer some of your questions in advance:

Compulsory testing in Hamburg

Currently hotel accommodation in Hamburg is only allowed, if a proof of a negative corona testing can be presented at check in. The testing requirement applies to both, private and business travellers.  The test has to be carried out by an official testing centre with trained staff and has to be taken within the last 24 hours prior to arrival. A PCR test may be up to 48 hours old at the time of arrival. If you stay for more than three nights, the testing needs to be renewed every 72 hours.

If more than one person stays in the apartment, a proof of a negative testing is required for all persons staying with us, only except for children under 6 years old and fully vaccinated and convalescent persons.

The nearest test station is about 900m from the Clipper Elb-Lodge at the Hans-Albers-Platz. You can book your appointment in advance. The cost is € 32 per testing. In the fish auction hall (500m from the Clipper Elb-Lodge) is an other test station. Unfortunately this is only open to German citiziens or resident people, as the test are paid by the Goverment.
