Children under the age of six are exempt. The corona rapid test must not be older than 24 hours, the PCR test not older than 48 hours.

“We take the opinion of our guests to heart and therefore reacted immediately. The colors of the ribbons are only related to the day. This means that all guests have the same color on the same day.
