18.10.2018, Brandenburg, Lehde: Tourists take a barge over a river in the autumnal Spreewald.

The Ministry of Health announced on October 9, 2020, in Potsdam that they were banned from accommodation because there were more than 50 new infections per 100,000 inhabitants in the past seven days.

Day guests are still welcome

This does not concern the many commuters, day trippers and visitors. Also who has a negative medically certified Corona test, which was made at the most 48 hours before journey, or necessarily travels for instance vocationally, may stay overnight - if one does not have Covid 19 symptoms.

Accommodation prohibition also for tourists from other regions

Taboo are overnight accomodation in Brandenburg also for guests from Frankfurt/Main, Offenbach, Bremen, from Hamm, Herne, Remscheid, Rosenheim as well as the districts Cloppenburg, Vechta and Wesermarsch in Lower Saxony and the district Esslingen in Baden-Wuerttemberg.
