Autumn holiday in Europe during Corona
Due to the current pandemic, travel destinations for the autumn and winter holidays are severely limited. However, there need not be a total holiday cancellation. We tell you where you can spend a few nice days on holiday in spite of everything. For those who would like to soak up some sun, the south is recommended. Corsica is ideally suited for this: According to the German Foreign Office, the island in the Mediterranean is not considered a risk area.
Malta and Greece have also recorded only a few infections and are therefore also considered safe for last-minute holidaymakers. Any Greek island is worth a trip in any case, even in autumn or winter.
The weather on Cyprus, with average temperatures of 22 to 27 degrees Celsius, is ideal for an autumn holiday with a late summer feeling.
The same applies to Italy. The temperatures are ideal for travellers who want to escape the dreary weather in Germany.
The Portuguese island of Algarve is not subject to a travel warning. Here, holidaymakers can look forward to summer temperatures, a relaxing holiday on the beach and great wine from the region.
Those who prefer to enjoy mountains and forests should drive or fly east. In Poland, the Masurian region is highly recommended. Many forests and lakes invite you to go for a walk or a leisurely boat tour. Wellness hotels offer a pampering programme to suit all tastes, but the entry requirements for Poland must currently be observed.
Slovenia is a must for passionate hikers. The country attracts visitors with its varied nature of forests, lakes and mountains. The diversity of the country is just right for a nature lover.
Empty beaches are also likely to be found in Denmark, as few visitors are expected in the northern neighbouring country. What you can also count on are the fresh temperatures between 9 and 13 degrees Celsius.
Those who want a holiday cottage with a fireplace should travel to Sweden. Except for the cities of Stockholm, Uppsala and Örebro, there are no travel restrictions.
A domestic holiday, on the other hand, is becoming a distant prospect. Many hotel operators are closed to holidaymakers from risk areas because of the accommodation ban. The lockdown imposed by the federal government for November 2020 is decisive here.
