Travel to Germany

Supposed be travelling to Germany next Wednesday returning Saturday and am going round in circles with the various entry requirements,
All four travellers are fully jabbed so no problem entering Germany.
My question is, if we have tests at the airport before departure, would it still cover us returning on Saturday night?
Has anyone done this?

Have a look at this article (if the link works) - Simon Calder calls it the long weekender. We are doing it to Croatia soon - taking a rapid test on Monday with results just before getting on a flight. Using that same test on our re-entry to the UK on Thursday as it was taken 3 days beforehand.

Are you quite sure you don't need to quarantine in Germany? Germany still considers the UK a high risk area which, to my understanding, means quarantine regardless of vaccination status. This is the relevant document from the Robert Koch Institute:

No, ignore my post. On second reading, I think the obligation to quarantine may now be waived for vaccinated persons from high risk areas.

Thank you, after a stressful day we have managed to book antigen tests at the airport on arrival in Germany. Just looking at Day tests back home now!
I will not be travelling abroad again until 2025 when hopefully all this is over!

Sorry to piggyback on this thread, but does anyone know for sure if under 12s need to quarantine for 5 days on arrival in Germany from the UK (if their parents are fully vaccinated)? My reading of the rules is that they do 😢 but I can see BA have told someone on Twitter that there’s no quarantine requirement 🤷🏻‍♀️
