Information for visitors

Current information / Coronavirus

For a visit to our sights, the 2G plus rule applies, i.e. all visitors must either be

  • vaccinated against COVID-19
    (with a vaccine authorised in the EU)

  • or recovered from COVID-19.

You will need to bring appropriate proof (written or electronic) as well as a valid ID (identity card or passport).

IN ADDITION, a negative Corona test must be brought along.
Proof of a negative PCR test (maximum 48 hours old) or a rapid antigen test (maximum 24 hours old). No tests are offered, supervised or proofs issued on site!
Vaccinated persons who have additionally received a booster vaccination or have gone through a COVID-19 infection after complete immunisation (vaccination breakthrough) do not have to present a negative Corona test.
In the case of vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccine Janssen from Janssen-Cilag International (Johnson & Johnson), the second vaccination is not to be regarded as a booster vaccination, but takes place as part of the basic immunisation.

Children under 14 years are exempt from the 2G plus rule. Pupils are considered tested (pupil ID required).

Visitors are required to wear FFP2 masks. Children and young people between the ages of six and 16 only need to wear a medical face mask.

Here you will find further information and FAQ.

Of the more than 150 rooms of the Residenzmuseum, a large part is open to visitors (only the Bronze Rooms, the Reliquary Collection, the Miniature Collection, the new silver and porcelain presentations in the Royal Palace and the Nibelungen Rooms are currently not accessible).

The cloakroom is only available to a limited extent; lockers are unfortunately not available.

Unfortunately, the Treasury cannot be visited until further notice.
