Covid-19 hygiene plan

Precautionary measures will be taken in consultation with the Humboldt Initiative. Current planning includes a rapid test of all participants at check-in. In case of a positive test, participation in the tournament is unfortunately not possible. Whether the wearing of masks in the game rooms will be obligatory will be decided at short notice depending on the infection situation and official guidelines.

Supporting program

For Saturday evening a dinner in a restaurant is planned after the general meeting. More information will follow.

On Friday afternoon we will set up and probably visit a restaurant afterwards. Join us after you have arrived!


There is the possibility of a collective order at a Japanese sushi supplier. Otherwise, there are several restaurants (German, Italian, Indian) in the vicinity of the venue, as well as a large selection of snack bars at the Friedrichstraße train station.

Coffee, tea and mineral water are available free of charge.
