Dear guests of Oberstdorf,

During the press conference on May 5 of the Bavarian government Governor Markus Söder announced that from May 30, 2020 on it is possible to spend a holiday in Oberstdorf again. Under strict conditions hotels, guesthouses, apartments and camping sites can re-open.
Also restaurants are allowed to open again under conditions and with special hygiene concepts. They may open inside and outside until 10 pm.

Furthermore the initial restriction was changed into a contact limitation on May 6.This means more freedom for each one of us but also more responsibility. All measures are made under consideration of the latest numbers of infection and might be adjusted again, also regionally.

Together we can reduce the spread of this virus and protect the weakest in our society.

Stay healthy.
