What’s the point now? No more wine sales after 7 p.m.!
This innovation causes many citizens to shake their heads: During the nationwide fourth lockdown, petrol stations now also have to limit their range of goods in the evening. The latest amendment to the Corona Emergency Measures Ordinance says that they are no longer allowed to sell a bottle of wine or crate of beer in their shops from 7 p.m.

Shopping in petrol station shops is now restricted by an amendment during the current lockdown. You can still buy fuel, charcoal, lighters or car accessories. When it comes to food and beverages, things get complicated at the petrol pumps from today.
Alcohol sales from 7 p.m. only in “customary vessels”
Pre-packaged food, such as shrink-wrapped bread, can still be bought. But not a freshly baked bread roll from the gas station’s bakery. Pet food for pets, coffee, non-alcoholic drinks and beer in commercially available sealed containers may continue to change hands despite the amendment. And that is exactly what is incomprehensible to many citizens: You can still buy a bottle of beer after 7 p.m., while buying a bottle of wine is forbidden.
