Covid-19 hygiene plan (Update: Sep. 10th)

Precautionary measures will be taken in consultation with the HumboldtInitiative in compliance with the current regulations of the State of Berlin (Link: https://www.berlin.de/corona/en/measures/ ).

Each participant must be tested before the start. For this purpose, rapid tests and experienced personnel are available at the check-in entrance. Alternatively, a daily updated (≤ 24 hours) certificate of a negative test can be presented. The test obligation applies expressly also to vaccinated and recovered persons! Please consider the necessary time of about 20 minutes when registering. There is a public testing station at the corner of Ziegelstraße / Friedrichstraße, but it is only open from 10:00 am.

In case of a positive test, participation in the tournament unfortunately is not possible.

Wearing masks in the rooms is generally mandatory, but they can be removed at the board.

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.
