The launch of Singapore’s first Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) to Germany was, for many, the most exciting announcement of the year. Now, frequent visitors are quickly remembering all the things they love most. Also, those who haven’t made it yet are excited to finally check the country off of their bucket lists.
Starting 26 April 2022, fully vaccinated travellers on all Singapore Airlines and Scoot flights will enjoy quarantine-free entry into Singapore without any pre-departure Covid-19 test.
So where to begin?
In Frankfurt, a trip can kick off with a wander down the charming centuries-old streets along the River Main. For an old-school German dining experience, seats are arranged under the trees at Speisekammer, where hearty classics such as schweinelendchen mit äpfeln (grilled pork tenderloin with apples) and schnitzel (crispy breaded cutlets) are served. For a great view of the skyline, early evening can be spent on a river cruise.
Southeast, in what’s widely dubbed “Italy’s northernmost city”, Munich gives off a much more Mediterranean vibe. A day can be spent wandering the wide boulevards and street-side eateries. A visit to the central daily food market Viktualienmarkt or the less-crowded Elisabethmarkt in Schwabing is essential for foodies. Bavarian delicacies can be enjoyed at Augustiner Bräustuben, Munich’s oldest independent brewery. As it’s often noted as one of the world’s greatest beer and brewing capitals of Europe, those keen to further explore the local beer scene can plan a bar crawl to sample exciting craft beers.
Please check the respective locations’ websites for opening hours as well as booking requirements before visiting, and remember to adhere to safe-distancing measures while out and about.
