Information for visitors

Current information

In order to protect our staff from COVID-19, it is still mandatory to wear a medical face mask.

Visitors without the appropriate mask must unfortunately be refused entry; this also applies if a medical certificate is presented.

Children up to their sixth birthday are exempt from the mask requirement.

Due to renovation work, the Elector's Apartment can unfortunately not be visited until further notice.
