Same same, but different.

Since August 2021, the ‘3G rule’ has applied to certain indoor spaces in Germany: to be granted access, you will need to prove that you have been vaccinated, have recovered from coronavirus or have tested negative. This also applies to our hotels.You must take a test on arrival and test twice a week during your stay.

Each German state is permitted to suspend the ‘3G rule’ when case numbers are consistently low. If case numbers are high, states can implement the ‘3G Plus rule’ (vaccinated, recovered or have a negative PCR test) or the ‘2G rule’ (vaccinated, recovered).

Different regulations are in place in countries outside Germany.As these regulations are continually adjusted in light of the current situation, we recommend that you check the information about the current travel rules on the official websites of your destination, or in case of doubt, contact the hotel directly.

Everything you need to know about staying at Motel One now

Can I travel in Germany?
Since 23 August
, what is known as the ‘3G rule’ applies to travel in Germany. However, restrictions may vary between federal states (overview). Please note in particular the introduction of the ‘3G Plus rule’ (vaccinated, recovered, have a negative PCR test) and the ‘2G rule’ (vaccinated, recovered), which may be introduced if case numbers increase.
