  • Currently longer waiting times

    The currently high demand for timed tickets causes longer wait times at the box office, when booking by telephone and for replies on email inquiries. We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • Spontaneous visits

    If you would like to visit the Humboldt Forum on the spur of the moment, you may still be successful, as there are always free time slots available on a daily basis, both in the ticket webshop and at the box office in the foyer, in case individual visitors do not take up their bookings after all.
