New Corona Protection Ordinance

As of January 25, a medical mask must be worn when shopping, visiting the doctor, during medical services, on buses and trains, and during religious services. These are surgical masks, FFP2 masks or comparable masks such as KN95/N95, as specified by the country. If children under the age of 14 cannot wear a medical mask due to the fit, they must wear an everyday mask (textile mouth-nose covering).

Bonn's sophisticated infrastructure - both, local and regional - meets all the needs of globally active, globally travelling organisations. It includes a dense highway network, rail links, and flight connections to all key destinations. New York, Nairobi, or Delhi can all be reached within 7.5 hours from the neighbouring airports of Düsseldorf (60 minutes by train or car) and Frankfurt (90 minutes by car/38 minutes by ICE high-speed train from Siegburg/Bonn ICE station). Most European cities are no more than an hour's flight away. The highway distance to Brussels is about 2 to 3 hours only.
