    On September 18, the pianist and conductor Justus Frantz took the ICE train from Hamburger Dammtor to Berlin Central Station. According to media reports, however, he had to leave the train before his destination at the request of a conductor because he had not complied with the prescribed corona measures.

    Frantz is said not to have worn a mouth and nose protector because he had previously ordered “a sumptuous meal” in the on-board bistro: “I had ordered a sumptuous meal in the dining car. Bratwurst, mashed potatoes, celery, beer, water, coffee. Then the train attendant came and asked me to put on my mask,” the pianist told the “Bild” newspaper. He also said that he tried several times to explain to the conductor that he could not eat with the mask on, but the conductor rebuked him anyway. He went on to explain: “But he didn’t let go of me, told me I would have to leave the train otherwise and insisted on his domiciliary rights. I have never experienced something like that!”.

    Terminus: Berlin-Spandau

    When Frantz left the ICE early in Berlin-Spandau, he is said to have been received by two police officers. He then got into a taxi and continued on to his destination. He was invited to a charity concert for the children’s charity “Kinder in Not”. To date, Deutsche Bahn has not commented specifically on the incident. A statement said: “We take the incident described by Mr. Frantz very seriously and are currently examining it internally. This process has not yet been completed, so we cannot comment further at this time”.
