Covid-19 update

Due to the current developments arround Covid-19 we are closed from 2nd november 2020 to 15th February 2021!

Due to the current developments arround Covid-19 we also have to prevent the risk of further spreading of the coronavirus:

  • The museum areas above and below ground will be reopened maybe on 16th february 2021.
  • Compliance with the hygiene and distance rules (at least 2 m) according to our notices

  • Maximum number of guests per area and time slot (max. 20 people at the same time in the museum above ground)

  • The visit therefore requires the reservation of certain time slots.

  • You can reserve daily between 10 am and 5 pm only by telephone on 05327/829 391. Please try it again.

  • To control the number of visitors, the stays to be booked are initially 1,5 hours, each at the beginning of a full hour, e.g.B. from 10 am to 11.30 am etc.

  • Admission 15 minutes before the booked time.

  • In the event of an unannounced delay of 15 minutes or more, your reservation will be canceled entirely.

  • Obligation to wear mouth and nose protection for all guests and employees (except children under 6 years of age or medical certificate). If they are disregarded, our employees are obliged to ban the house.

  • When you make a reservation, we record your name and your telephone number so that possible infections can be traced. Both will be destroyed again within the legally prescribed time.
