Updates on Corona measures

Our hygiene measures for your stay in Hamburg


Esteemed guests,

We have devised a comprehensive hygiene strategy to help protect the health and safety of our guests, our employees and the general population. On the following page we explain where current measures differ from the usual business at our hotel. It is extremely important to us that our guests feel comfortable at our hotel at all times and in all circumstances. Despite the extra demands placed on us all during these extraordinary times, we endeavour, as always, to provide a home from home for our guests in Hamburg.


It is important to us to be available to answer our guests’ questions in person during their entire stay. In order to ensure to do this safely in the current situation, we have installed a Perspex screen at our reception desk. In this way, we can greet all guests in person, almost as usual, and protect our guests and our staff at the same time.

You can contact reservations by phone or E-Mail as per usual.

Cashfree payments Digital payment options reduce infection risks. At the Hotel Alt Lohbrügger Hof we offer a choice of digital payment options. Please pay contactless whenever possible. Currently banks require customers to enter their PIN for transactions of EUR 50 or higher with Visa / Mastercard / Giro Card and American Express.


In order to ensure the protection of all those present and the hygiene rules during restaurant operations, we ask that the following be observed. For the restaurant visit, contact tracking data must be deposited by using the Luca app or on a conventional paper form. Currently, a distinction is made in Hamburg between indoor and outdoor catering. In outdoor restaurants, a maximum of 10 people can sit at the same table. A minimum distance of 1.5 metres from other persons outside one’s own group must be maintained. A medical or FFP2 mask must be worn outside the seating area. In indoor catering, the maximum number of people at a table is limited to 10. The 3G model is applied in our house, i.e. for the use of the indoor area all guests must be verifiably vaccinated, recovered or tested. The tests must have been provided by a medical provider (doctor, pharmacy or laboratory) in accordance with the current Hamburg Corona Ordinance. Rapid test results may be max. 24 hours old and PCR test results max. 48 hours old. Minimum distance compliance and medical mask compliance apply. With all changes, it is our greatest endeavour to reconcile hygiene, protection and good service.

Hygiene measures in the bedrooms

In order to keep contact surfaces as small as possible, we have removed some decorations and all drinks and snacks from the mini bar. In the current circumstances less is more!

All contact surfaces are cleaned and disinfected by housekeeping as part of the cleaning routine.

However, we do not want to leave our guests completely without access to mini bar items. Drinks and snacks that are usually available in the mini bar in the room can be bought for the same price from reception or the hotel bar.

Conferences and events

Private events are currently not permitted in Hamburg. Business events can only be held with a large number of restrictions in place. In addition to the general hygiene and protection etiquette, the following provisions are in place for any event:

  • Contact details of all participants must be provided (name, address, phone number)
  • All participants must be verifiably vaccinated, recovered or tested.
  • Organisational processes for observing social distancing must be put in place
  • The participants must adhere to a fixed seating plan
  • Dancing is not permitted
  • Medical-grade face masks are mandatory (surgical mask or FFP2 mask

Our service staff wear a medical-grade mask (surgical mask or FFP2 mask) at all times in guest areas. In addition, our venues are equipped with powerful ventilation systems in order to minimise the risk of infection.


A trip to Hamburg is definitely worthwhile. The restaurants and shops have opened again and the fantastic summer weather invites you to stroll, shop and walk. The vaccinated, the recovered and the tested can get into all the “indoor” offers without any problems. To the outdoor areas, such as the many restaurants and cafés, all you need is the Luca app or contact tracking data. Hamburg is looking forward to your visit!

Furthermore, the current regulations must always be observed.
