Europeans will have to wait a little longer before they can travel to Europa-Park. As long as the borders remain closed, only Germans will be able to enjoy the theme park.
Located in Rust, a few kilometres from Alsace, which was particularly affected by the Coronavirus epidemic, Europa-Park had postponed its spring reopening, which was supposed to take place on 28 March.
Hotels and restaurants will reopen gradually from May 18, then the park itself on May 29, detailed the direction of the theme park in a statement. The new water park Rulantica, adjacent to Europa-Park, remains closed for the time being.
To "minimise the risk of infection", the number of visitors will be limited and tickets will have to be bought online, markings will be put in place to maintain distances and the surfaces will be regularly disinfected.
The Mack family, owners of the park, welcomes "the relaxation of measures relating to the coronavirus epidemic, decided at national level by the German federal government on 6 May, and the publication of the authorised opening dates in the official press release of the state government of Baden-Württemberg on 7 May. "It is hoped to be able to welcome visitors from countries other than Germany again "as soon as cross-border traffic is restored".
