Hanover (dpa / lni) - After more than four months of forced closure in the corona pandemic, the first leisure facilities in Lower Saxony are planning partial openings.

The Lüneburg Heath Wildlife Park in Hanstedt-Nindorf announced on Friday that it would welcome visitors again next Monday.

Admission is then only possible after prior reservation.

There are fixed quotas for the time windows.

The treetop path in Bad-Iburg (Osnabrück district) also wants to reopen at the beginning of the week.

According to the new ordinance of the state of Lower Saxony, museums, galleries, zoological and botanical gardens as well as memorial sites can reopen from next Monday (March 8th) with half of the normal visitor capacity and a registration requirement.

Visitors to Hanover Zoo have to be patient a little longer.

There you first want to see the specific requirements of the new state ordinance.

"We are now waiting for the state's regulation, to which we will then react accordingly," said the managing director of the Hanover Zoo, Andreas M. Casdorff, in a message on Friday.

There are still some unanswered questions.

On request, museums in Lower Saxony also announced that they wanted to wait for the exact text of the regulation first.
