The border between Austria and Germany will be completely opened from 15 June, Austria’s tourism minister, Elisabeth Köstinger, has told the country’s public service broadcaster, ORF.

The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, and Austrian chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, have agreed on a two-step plan to ease travel restrictions, she said, with some restrictions on border traffic to be eased from Friday and controls to be completely lifted from 15 June.
