Bars and pubs have re-opened in Berlin after the COVID-19 lockdown, with Germany continuing with the relaxation of coronavirus measures, as seen in footage filmed in a host of Berlin bars on Tuesday.
Social distancing rules were set out clearly with distancing laid out at tables and benches, and customers also had to leave 1.5 metres of distance between groups.
Patrons and owners alike expressed their happiness with the re-opening, and stated they are ready to go back to normality.
The reopening of bars was agreed by the Berlin senate during a special session last Thursday. They decided that the permitted opening hours would be from 6:00 am until 11:00 pm.
