Can I travel from Germany to the Netherlands and Noordwijk?

Noordwijk is located in the province of South Holland. The German and Belgian governments have issued a negative travel advice for South Holland for German and Belgian tourists since September 16, 19.00. Although as a German or Belgian tourist you are (and will remain) most welcome in Noordwijk, we can imagine that you are wondering what to do if you (as a German or Belgian tourist) are or are going to visit Noordwijk.

Advice
With Corona suspicious complaints, the first advice is to stay home or go home. If you have symptoms of the flu or a cold and still want to stay in Noordwijk, we ask you to have yourself tested. You can call the GGD to make an appointment at one of the test streets in the Netherlands (0800-1202 or +31 850 659 063).

Test
Upon returning home, all German and Belgian tourists must undergo a test to prove they are Corona-free. This test must take place in the country of origin. It is NOT intended to be done via the Dutch test streets.

Tip
German guests also have the opportunity to do the PCR test at an independent laboratory, eg. on the return journey. A provider with different test locations is: https://coronalab.eu/en/ This may save you time and keep any mandatory quarantine period as short as possible.
