The German government warned that people will be able to go on vacation and start traveling this year not earlier than the end of May.
The German government’s tourism commissioner, Thomas Bareis, said this, The Local reported.
“I think travel is something that is very hard to imagine in the next two or three months. Things will get better again after Trinity. And I hope this summer will be a very big travel period,” Bareis said.
The religious holiday of Trinity this year for Catholics is May 23. The Monday after Trinity is Germany’s national holiday.
Bareis added that after numerous people are vaccinated, vacations in more remote parts of the world could also become possible later in the year.
“If we actually get most people in Germany vaccinated in the second quarter of the year, it will be safe to travel in the summer,” he said.
