Die Stadt Oldenburg bietet eine große Vielfalt an Museen für alle Geschmäcker. Es hat sogar ein Computer Museum (leider momentan nur online verfügbar). Ich werde euch jetzt kurz die Museen präsentieren, die wieder geöffnet wurden:




Das Horst-Janssen-Museum hat sich der Bildenden Kunst auf Papier verschrieben. Es bietet gerade zwei Ausstellungen. Die erste (dauerhafte Ausstellung) geht um das Leben und die Arbeit von Horst Janssen. Die Ausstellung besteht aus vier Teilen: seine Biografie, seine Drucktechniken, die Geschichte der Zeichnung und wie er schreibt. Die zweite Ausstellung ist bis zum 02.05 verfügbar und es geht um Hand zeichnen. Da kann man selbst Portraits sehen, Zeichnungen von Kindern usw.

(auf Deutsch findest du unten :)


Every year during the winter semester the International Student Representatives (ASV) are chosen, in a presential election conducted by the election comitee of the Student Parlament (StuPa). This year, due to the corona pandemic, the election was shifted to the beginning of the summer semester, and will be conducted exclusively per post. Your vote is very important to guarantee that our international community will be well represented in the upcoming year, so we encourage you to take a look at the list of candidates (by clicking here) and registering as a voter! The voting process is simple and free of charge, here you can find a step-by-step.



Step 1: Register to vote





In order to vote, you need to request that the voting documents be sent to you. This is done by filling this short form (which you can download by clicking here) and sending it by email to wahlausschuss@stupa-oldenburg.de.

The form does not need to be printed, an online signature is sufficient. Make sure to add your correct personal address, since the voting ballot will be sent to the address written in the form. The deadline for sending the request is the 12.04.2021, but make sure to send it as soon as you can in order to avoid delays!








If this step is done correctly, you should receive a confirmation email from the Election Comittee, and the letter with the voting documents should arrive in your post box within the next few of days.



Step 2: Vote


Votes are meant to be secret, so make sure to open the letter and fill your vote privately. When opening the letter, you should see the following items:








- The Stimmzettel. This is where you will cast your vote. Indicate the candidate you want to vote by crossing the circle next to the name of the candidate. You only have one vote, so dont cross more than one candidate!















- The Red Envelope. After indicating your vote, fold the Stimmzettel and place it inside of the red envelope. The envelope comes with a self adhesive band, so simply peel the white tape on the envelope and seal it.




- The Wahlschein. This is a file containing informations about the election, and confirming your name and immatriculation number. In the section named Erklärung, you confirm that you have filled the Stimmzetel privately. Don't forget to date and sign it over the line!







- The Brown Envelope. This envelope will be used to send your vote to the Election Comittee. There is no need to buy a stamp for it: the postal costs will be payed by the receiver, i.e. the University. Simply place the Red Envelope (containing your sealed vote) and the Wahlschein inside of the brown envelope, and you will be ready for the final step!



Step 3: Send your Vote






This is the final step. You can send your vote by making use of a Briefkaste, i.e. a mailbox. These are readily avaliable throughout the city. One of those can be found in front of the bus stop at the Campus Haarentor (on the side of Combi). You can also use the mailbox map on the Deutsche Post website to find one next to you. Simply drop the brown envelope in one of these mailboxes. Alternatively, you can also bring your envelope to a Postal station from the Deutsche Post. Your vote must arrive before the 30.04.2021 in order to be counted, so its best to send it early!












And that is it! After doing these 3 steps, you will have sent your vote to the international student representative election, and will be helping us build a more representative group. If you have any questions about the voting process, feel free to contact us at hgas@uol.de!

#28.03 #Niedersachsen #curfew





Today we want to inform you about the new corona regulations: The Federal Council has decided to take new decision in terms of the corona regulations. They agreed on new regulations for Niedersachsen. As of today , those shall be valid.

In this post we want to give you a summary and therefore an overview of these new regulations.




  1. How many people can meet eachother?

Due to the new regulations private meeting shall be allowed between two households in total. There is however a new paragraph which, specifying that there is no actual number of people from one household determined anymore. If you are living in a flat with four flatmates for example, all four of you can meet with maximum two people from one other household. However this new resolution is only valid if the incidence is under 100 per 10. 000 inhabitants for seven days in a row. Couples are counting as one household, even if they don't live together.

The current incidence number of Oldenburg is 81,0.




2. Special regulations during the easter weekend?


There will be special regulations from the 1st until the 5th of april. Those include a strict prohibition of private group meetings in public during this period.


3. What about a curfew in Niedersachsen?


If the incidence rate in a district or an indipendant town increases above 100 for over 3 days in a row the local authority shall be authorised to impose a curfew between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. If the incidence rate in a district or an indipendant town is above 150 for 7 days in an row they immediatly have to impose a curfew. Commuters are always excluded from this scheme.



The graphic gives an overview oh number of new infections over the last 7 days with a division by age group.


4. What is gonna be closed again?


restaurants, theatres, cinemas and bars have to stay closed. Touristic overnight stays are still not possible. However, stores are allowed to offer appointments for shopping, if the incidence rate is under 100 for 7 days in a row. Via "click&meet" you are able to book appointments in your favorite stores online (you can find more information about the click&meet system on the following website: Click & Meet in Oldenburg // SCHON GEHÖRT (ichliebeoldenburg.de)

Hairdressing salons and bookstores stay open in Niedersachsen, as well as zoos and botanical gardens.


5. pilot projects/communities?


Tübingen (Baden-Württemberg) is currently the only pilot city in Germany that tries to handle the pandemic differently. In Tübingen all stores are open, restaurants, theatres, cinemas as well as coffee shops. They invested in an intense testing system, and if your test is negative, you are allowed to visit the whole city center with all the stores etc. for a day. This project has welcomed with much interest by other cities in Germany. In Niedersachsen there are over 30 communities/cities that are willing to try this system as well. If they get the permission to try it, the project will be limited in time for 3 weeks at first to see how the project is working. There are no further information about the communites and cities in Niedersachsen that will take part on the pilot project yet. As soon as there are new information, we will inform you about the news.


6. Luca app?


Luca-App is a new attempt at a contact-tracing app, after the Corona WarnApp failed to take off last year. The ministers in Niedersachsen have enterd into a contract of using the Luca app. After the easter holidays the app shall be started in the pilot projects in Niedersachsen. Within a month all 43 health authorities in Niedersachens should be connected with the app system.


7. Travel information and the obligation to test for air travel


A Covid-19 test before the return by plane is gonna be compulsary for each tzravel destination abroad. You have to look for a testing possibilty yourself, however, there will be support by the airlines and travel organisations. Usually you have to pay for the tests yourself - if you wanna fly to Mallorca for example the costs amount to 30 to 40 euros per test.


8. Positive Covid-19 test and costs for quarantine?


If your test result is gonna be positive before the return you have to pay for the quarantine in the holiday destination yourself. However, many travel organisations offer special pandemic insurers. If you fly with TUI for example, they offer the "Covid project" which insures your quarantine stay - so they pay for your hotel stay in case of a positive Covid test result. There are also other airlines who offer similiar insurers due to the pandemic.


If you have any questions or need more information, as always, don't hestitate to contact us via Email hgas@uol.de.

In the meantime stay healthy and take care! As soon as there are any news we will update you.


We also hope you all have nice easter holidays!
