Germany’s answer to increase in COVID-19 infections

Since there are many new cases of the Corona Virus in Germany, new laws had to be introduced. The German government has banned all brothels and other adult entertainment venues from operating in the month of November. The laws are different for each state, which means that some things are allowed in one state which is banned in others. Additionally, the laws are not very specific as to what type of prostitution are banned, so certain things, such as escort agencies might still be able to operate.

Curfew in Austria because of the Corona Virus

The Austrian government has also taken action as a result of the increase in COVID-19 infections. The curfew between 8PM and 6AM has been reinstated again and no prostitution businesses are allowed to operate. This means that businesses are not allowed to operate between these hours and that nobody is allowed to be outside on the streets either.

How Austrian establishments notified their clients

The curfew has made it impossible for adult entertainment venues to operate, and the establishments have notified their clients in different ways. In the next paragraph, we will be looking at how clients were notified of this change.

Sexclub Maxim Wien: As always, Maxim Wien was one of the first clubs to tell their clients of the new lockdown. The sexclub has published a notice on their official website stating that the club is unfortunately going to be closed due to the lockdown in November. They also added that they will return with full power starting from the 1st of December when they are awaiting their client’s return to the club.

Goldentime FKK: Much like Maxim, the Goldentime FKK also notified their clients through their website. They posted a message on the top of their establishment’s website saying that their company must stay closed till November 30 according to the new COVID-19 regulations. According to the statement, the Goldentime FKK is also going to reopen as soon as they are allowed to.

Laufhaus Vienna: The Laufhaus Vienna management has also notified the clients on their site. Clients can find a notice on the main page saying that the Laufhaus will be closed between November 3 and November 30. According to the statement, the ladies of Laufhaus Vienna will be awaiting guests from December 1.


Certain laws had to be introduced because of the Corona Virus in Germany and Austria alike. This means that the prostitution scene in German speaking countries has been halted in the month of November. According to the laws, brothels will be able to open once again starting from December 1. Unfortunately this is not set in stone as we could see other laws being introduced in case the rise of COVID-19 infections in November. Hopefully this won’t be the case and we can return to enjoying brothels, clubs, Laufhauses and other adult entertainment venues in Germany and Austria as soon as possible.
