North. Lower Saxony’s coastal resorts would normally be bustling with tourists at this time of year, strolling along the beaches in glorious spring weather. In times of corona restrictions, however, that is exactly what is prohibited: tourist activities are forbidden, as is, for example, the stay of people who only have a secondary residence at the north sea.
However, this very circumstance is now causing a bizarre phenomenon in the coastal towns: there are increasing reports of residents being mobbed by locals because of their foreign license plates.
