General timing: 

timing hbf 22

We kindly ask everyone to make daily  Covid Tests during the weekend. 

From this month the tests unfortunately are no longer free of charge, but they cost 3€ per test. I hope it’s ok for you to invest it to make everyone a bit more safe at the parties and classes. 
Please plan enough extra time if you plan to use testing stations. As some of them have been closed during summer others are quite busy, so there might be some queues. 
Here are some addresses of testing stations close to the classes: 

Happy People Testzentrum, Alma Wartenberg Platz, Bahrenfelder Str. 156-158, 22765 Hamburg (open all days 9am to 8m)
Corona Schnelltest Hamburg, Mercado Einkaufszentrum, Ottenser Hauptstraße 10, 22765 Hamburg (open Mon-Sat. 9am to 6pm) 

Testing stations in other areas: 
Corona Freepass here you can choose a station near your stay. For the testing station near St. Pauli choose “Hamburg, Spielbudenplatz”

Alternatively you can use self tests from the supermarket / pharmacy.
