For a visit to our sights, the 2G plus rule applies, i.e. all visitors must either be
vaccinated against COVID-19
(with a vaccine authorised in the EU)
or recovered from COVID-19.
You will need to bring appropriate proof (written or electronic) as well as a valid ID (identity card or passport).
IN ADDITION, a negative Corona test must be brought along.
Proof of a negative PCR test (maximum 48 hours old) or a rapid antigen test (maximum 24 hours old). No tests are offered, supervised or proofs issued on site!
Fully immunised persons who have additionally received a booster vaccination or have gone through a COVID-19 infection do not have to present a negative Corona test.
In the case of vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccine Janssen from Janssen-Cilag International (Johnson & Johnson), the second vaccination is not to be regarded as a booster vaccination, but takes place as part of the basic immunisation.
Children under 14 years are exempt from the 2G plus rule. Pupils are considered tested (pupil ID required).
Visitors are required to wear FFP2 masks. Children and young people between the ages of six and 16 only need to wear a medical face mask.
