Frequent Questions

Here we would like to give you the most important and most frequent questions about the effects of the corona pandemic and your stay in our city and in our hotel.

Am I allowed to stay?

Since May 15, 2021, hotel stays are finally allowed again for private reasons (e.g. city tourism or visiting friends and relatives) in Heidelberg.


However, until further notice, the guests must present the certificates of negative corona rapid tests on arrival, which must not be older than 24 hours. In addition, the guests have to undergo another rapid corona test every 3rd day and present the certificate to the hotel. Guests who have complete vaccination protection or who have recovered from a corona infection in the last 6 months before arrival can alternatively prove this to the hotel and are then exempt from the obligation to test.


You can find an overview of the test stations here.


Further information about the corona situation in Heidelberg can be found on the website of the city of Heidelberg.
