Safety Guidelines

In order to ensure a safe stay for all visitors, special hygiene measures are currently in place for visits to the Humboldt Forum.

  • Do you feel ill?

    If you have cold symptoms or feel ill, please refrain from visiting.

  • Last-minute changes

    Please note that the measures may change at short notice depending on the current hygiene regulations.

  • Face coverings

    With the exception of children under 6, all visitors are required to wear a medical face mask, FFP2 or KN95 mask in all indoor areas of the Humboldt Forum. Please bring your own face mask with you.

  • Social distancing

    Please maintain a distance of at least 1.5m from other visitors, both within the building and in the outdoor areas.

  • Hand washing and sanitiser

    Please wash your hands regularly. Hand sanitiser dispensers can be found throughout the Humboldt Forum. Please do not use your own hand sanitiser in the exhibition areas, as these products may cause damage to the exhibits.

  • Contactless payment

    When making payments on-site, please use a contactless card, or smartphone payment.

  • Etiquette

    Please protect others: if you need to cough or sneeze, please do so into your elbow.

  • Using interactive exhibits

    For our hands-on exhibits and listening stations, we will give out conductive gloves, headphone covers and any other necessary equipment, either from the counters at the exhibition entrances, in the exhibitions themselves, or in advance in the cloakroom.

  • Compulsory testing

    When our event programme launches in October, a negative test result, or evidence of vaccination or complete recovery from Covid-19 will be required (subject to hygiene guidelines in force at that time). This also applies to private events at the Humboldt Forum.
