The upcoming September is one of the most beautiful times here in Andalucia (like June) - nice and warm around +/- 28 degrees, and the beaches are back to calm and empty at the eastside of Malaga.

GOOD NEWS FOR OUR GERMAN GUESTS - (by 03-09--2021) -
Spain for Germany is no longer "area of risk" - only 3 Gs are necessary to return!
NOTE THAT it was ALWAYS possible to come in the last year and half -
just sometimes its a little more effort to take in account.

WAY BACK HOME -- IF--
-- you have to carry only an Antigen-Test with you, on your way back home (not older than 48 hrs / 25-50EUR) --
through this link, you can arrange an exact slot for your test some 3-4 hours before departure (do not forget to bring the confirmation-email for your slot!)
It's booked out very quickly, so arrange it 2, better 3 weeks in advance, as you save effort and a day of
If you do not get a slot some hours before your departure, - the procedure is, to do the test in the city nearby, but you would lose 1 practice morning (- valid only for flights at Sunday before 11:00!) and its 50 EUR (double price)
-- Important note here --
this applies for these travelers, who need (only) an Antigentest (because you get the result within 15 min) - the procedure is different for PCR, as here the result comes only on the next day!
No worries - we are happy to help to get through the small obstacles.
