Hygiene and protection measures

Dear visitors,

We ask you to observe the following rules.

3G rule at events

At events, the 3G rule applies in our house: only only those who have been triple vaccinated, have recovered or are tested negative can be admitted. A certificate of a fully-completed vaccination or recovery is required. Rapid tests must not be older than 24 hours, PCR tests not older than 48 hours. Please remember to bring your relevant proof and identification documents with you. The mask may then be removed in place.

Admission at events und guest registration

If you are attending an event in our house, your proof (3G) must be presented at admission. Before each visit we are also obliged to record the data of all guests. This is done via the Luca app or the Corona-Warn-App. Of course, you can still register at admission by filling out a form. The data is kept confidential and secure for four weeks and only passed on to the responsible health authority on request. 

Physical distancing

Please ensure that you maintain a minimum physical distance of 1.5m throughout your visit to the Kunsthaus.

Face mask requirement

Wearing a face mask is compulsory throughout the house. Only a FFP2 mask is currently permitted. For mutual protection both the mouth and nose must be covered.

Hand disinfection

Please use the hygiene dispensers set up at admission.

Health Status

Unfortunately admission cannot be granted if you have symptoms of a cold. If you feel sick, please stay at home.


Please keep in mind that there may be changes to the special regulations at short notice. If necessary, inform yourself in advance here on our homepage or social media channels ( Facebook/ Instagram), which are always updated.
