A land of experiences

Enter a world of enjoyment.


As part of of the COVID-19 relaxation measures, many of our tourism partners in Hessen are now open to the public again. Many cultural institutions including zoos and botanical gardens have reopened, as have recreational areas such as playgrounds, indoor climbing centres, gyms and bowling alleys.

From 15 May onwards, hotels are open for overnight stays and cafés, pubs, beer gardens and restaurants may serve guests with various safety measures in place. Please check opening hours and specific safety precautions with the individual businesses. Thermal baths, swimming pools and saunas as well as nightclubs will remain closed for the time being. 

You can find up-to-date information about the coronavirus situation in Germany on the English language websites of the Federal Ministry of Health and the Robert Koch Institute. Hessen-specific information is available in German on the Hessen State Government website.

Take care of yourself, stay healthy, and you still visit Hessen virtually. For inspiration for future travels, be sure to follow us on Instagram!
