Private gatherings and parties
The number of people allowed to attend events among friends and family (for example gatherings and parties) that are not held in publicly accessible establishments is limited. The numbers include children.
Rule indoors without certificate: A maximum of 30 people is allowed if everyone is vaccinated or recovered. As soon as one person is present who is not vaccinated or recovered and is aged over 16, only up to 10 people may gather.
Rule outdoors: A maximum of 50 people is allowed.
Access to indoor events for people aged 16 and over is basically restricted to people who are vaccinated or recovered (2G).
Basically masks must be worn for all events indoors. Where neither wearing masks nor compulsory seating is possible, only vaccinated or recovered people who can present a certificate for a negative test result (2G+) are admitted.
You will find more detailed information on the various areas of application of the COVID certificate and the exceptions on the Use of the COVID certificate page.
At outdoor events, access for people aged 16 and over is also restricted to people who are vaccinated or recovered (2G). The organiser can voluntarily limit access to vaccinated or recovered people who also have a certificate for a negative test result (2G+).Access restrictions can be waived if not more than 300 people are admitted and guests do not dance.
Cultural, sports and recreational facilities
If visitors are not confined to outdoor areas, access for people aged 16 and over must be restricted to vaccinated or recovered people (2G).
This applies to the following, among others:
- libraries (it is still possible to collect ordered/reserved books without a certificate)
- fitness centres
- zoos (if visitors can move between indoor and outdoor areas)
Basically masks must be worn in indoor areas.
Facilities have the option of restricting access to those with a vaccination or recovery certificate and thus dispense with the requirement to wear a mask in indoor areas, e.g. indoor swimming pools, water parks and thermal baths.
