House Rules

We are committed to making your stay smooth and comfortable. We also hold ourselves to the highest standards when protecting your privacy and data, and place your security as our top priority. Please read our House Rules carefully to find out how you can contribute to general safety of yourself, your colleagues, fellow residents as well as the Guest House team.


Your stay during the pandemic / updated as of 24 January 2022

As of 24 January 2022, Guest House at European XFEL applies the 2G+ rules until further notice. 2G+ rules allow access to the building only to fully vaccinated or recovered residents with a negative PCR test (see below for PCR test requirements). Additional daily test measures apply to users of the facility. All residents are required to complete safety training prior to their arrival. Guest House cannot be used as a quarantine location.

Please note: the pandemic rules noted below supersede House Rules in order to ensure public safety. The total occupancy limit of one person in a single room, and two persons in the double room, at a time must not be exceeded. FFP2 masks that cover nose and mouth have to be worn at all times - the mask can be taken down once the resident is in their own room with the doors shut. The masks can be briefly taken down in the foyer to consume food and beverages, provided the resident is seated with the appropriate distance from another resident and the maximum number of persons permitted in the room, as noted on the sign in the foyer, has not been exceeded.

In order to be authorized to access the site, it is the resident´s responsibility to provide a negative molecular biological PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 before 11:00 (local time) on the day of arrival on site. The PCR test must have been carried out within the previous 48 hours. In case the test certificate is not provided until then, access to the site will not be permitted. If provided later than 11:00 on the arrival day, access to the campus - including stay at Guest House at European XFEL, if applicable - may be only possible on the following working day.

Please observe social distancing as well as any additional rules that apply in Germany.
