Maintenance Work

10 to 24 August 2022

We are taking two weeks to make the Humboldt Forum even more attractive for visitors. We will be doing some minor maintenance, and carrying out our annual cleaning works, but we will still be open as usual, and look forward to your visit!
During the period from 10 to 24 August 2022, there will be some minor changes to access and signposting, so please follow our directions or speak to a member of staff. Unfortunately, there will be some areas where restrictions cannot be avoided:



You can visit the BERLIN GLOBAL exhibition on the 1st floor and the SONGLINES special exhibition on the ground floor without restriction via access points signposted on site.
The Palace Cellar, the After Nature exhibition, the Museum für Asiatische Kunst and the Ethnologisches Museum will unfortunately be closed to visitors during the maintenance work. During this period, tickets for the exhibitions will be available from our ticket counter in the Tourist Info Office in the Schlüter Courtyard, or you can book them in advance on our website.
The Foyer will be completely closed during the maintenance period.


You can continue to watch the Video Panorama on the big screen to learn more about the History of the Site, and visit the Sculpture Hall to discover fascinating facts about the Palace’s façade and historical sculptures.
The Schlüter Courtyard will remain open: what’s more, from 28 July to 20 August it will become the stage for the free DURCHLÜFTEN open air programme with live music, performances, films, talks, DJ sets and activities for children and young people.
From the Schlüter Courtyard, you will also be able to access our Shop at the Passage, which will remain open as usual.
Unfortunately, we will have to close the roof terrace for the duration of the work.



Our restaurants and the sun terraces will be fully available. The Lebenswelten Bistro, Restaurant Wilhelm and Deli Alexander will be open as usual. The Berlin Café on the 1st floor will be closed from the maintenance phase until further notice.
The Baret rooftop restaurant and the Forum Café in the Stair Hall will be closed due to the maintenance work.
