Information for visitors

Current information / Coronavirus

To ensure neither our guests nor our staff are endangered by COVID-19, FFP2 masks are still mandatory in our houses. Children and young people between the ages of six and 16 only need to wear a medical face mask.

Visitors without the appropriate mask must unfortunately be refused entry; this also applies if a medical certificate is presented.

Children up to their sixth birthday are exempt from the mask requirement.

Here you will find further information and FAQ.
