Current visitor information

Since Monday, 11 May 2020, Haus der Kunst is open to visitors again. We are pleased to welcome you again to our exhibitions. On this page you will find detailed information about your visit, the current protection and hygiene measures and how to buy tickets.

Hygiene and conduct regulations

In coordination with the responsible authorities, Haus der Kunst has developed comprehensive protection and hygiene measures to make your visit as pleasant but also as safe as possible. They help to contain the coronavirus and are intended to protect you and our staff from infection. For the benefit of all, please only visit the Haus der Kunst if you feel healthy. If you feel ill or have had contact with a Covid-19 patient in the last few days, please refrain from visiting. In Haus der Kunst there is a mask obligation and a minimum distance of 2 meters. Please avoid group formation and pay attention to the new guidance system. We hope you will understand if our staff also draws your attention to these rules. Please make regular use of the disinfectant provided. The entrance and exit to the Haus der Kunst have been separated to avoid congestion. The exit is now at the back of the building. Visitors with reduced mobility can contact our staff to leave the building at the front.

You can purchase admission tickets with a time slot via our website. This makes it easier for us to control the total number of visitors allowed in the building.

We hope you enjoy the exhibitions and thank for your understanding and cooperation.
