Information & Tickets

Notes for your visit

Please note that at least the 2G+ rule applies in the Gropius Bau.

  • For your exhibition visit, 2G+ (FFP2 mask) applies. Visiting our exhibitions is only permitted for people who are either fully vaccinated or have recovered from a COVID-19 infection and wear an FFP2 mask in the building.
  • For events such as conversations or guided tours, 2G++ (test and FFP2 mask) applies. Visiting events at the Gropius Bau is only permitted for people who are either fully vaccinated or have recovered from a COVID-19 infection and can present a negative COVID-19 test (rapid antigen test from within the last 24 hours or PCR test from within the last 48 hours) upon arrival. An FFP2 mask must be worn during the entire event. With proof of a third vaccination (the so-called booster shot), a test is not required.
  • The digitally verifiable proof (QR code in digital or printed form) and your ID card will be checked in the entrance area.
  • Maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 meters from others and observe the general hygiene rules.
  • The 2G rule does not apply to minors (up to 18 years of age) and people who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons. They can visit the Gropius Bau after presenting a negative COVID-19 test not older than 24 hours (as well as a doctor’s certificate of vaccination eligibility). Children up to 6 years of age do not need to present a test.
  • Please check the validity of your vaccination certificate before your visit. In this regard, pay attention to the current conditions for the recognition of COVID certificates, i.e. the issuing country must take part in the EU Digital COVID Certificate system; the vaccine must be authorised by the European commission.
  • If you have been vaccinated outside the European Union (with a vaccine approved in the EU), proof of vaccination can also be provided without digital verification. Your vaccination certificate must contain your personal data, information on the vaccine and the date of vaccination.

To ensure that your visit is safe and relaxed, please also note the following information.
