On board of our ships we still take all the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and the associated disease of COVID-19. As a safety precaution, we continue to recommend that all of our passengers wear masks in the publicly accessible areas of our ships. The 3G rules no longer apply on board of our ferries. Please consider still the applicable entry and return regulations.

Please note that proof of complete vaccination, recovery or a negative rapid test or PCR test must be presented when entering the country from abroad.

    In case of a positive COVID-19 test result before entering or returning to Germany, the following must be observed according to the Corona regulations:

    • entry to the Federal Republic of Germany as a German citizen is expressively permitted
    • According to the Federal Government's decree, we as carriers are not allowed to transport persons without a negative Corona test result
    • Contact your local health authority, which can grant further exceptions for individual cases and for specific reasons and thus grant permission for carriage

    The test result shall be kept for at least 10 days after entry and must be presented to the competent authorities upon request.

  • Do I have to wear a mouth-nose protection?

    Masks are still compulsory in public transport, as well as in clinics, doctors' surgeries and nursing homes.
    In all other public areas, it is no longer mandatory to wear a mask. However, stores, museums and other institutions may continue to prescribe the use of a mask by virtue of their domiciliary rights.
