Good News: The Bundeskunsthalle is open again!

We are pleased to be able to open to the public again since 12 May 2020.

The exhibition Jerusalem. Longing for the Holy City unfortunately has to be removed from our program. The ongoing effects of the Covid 19 pandemic in numerous countries do not allow further planning of this exhibition, which is based on important international loans. For the same reason, the exhibition Dress Code. Are you playing fashion? has been postponed from the end of October 2020 to the end of March 2021 (26 March – 18 July 2021). The Bundeskunsthalle is working on alternatives for the 2020/21 winter program.

The opening of the Bundeskunsthalle follows a special protection and hygiene concept in accordance with the requirements of the Corona Protection Ordinance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. In particular, this means for your visit:

  • Obligation to wear mouth and nose protection in all public areas
  • Compliance with the minimum distance of 1.50 meters
  • Limitation of the simultaneous number of visitors (rule: one person per 7 square meters)
  • Compliance with special hygiene rules

We are offering print@home tickets with a window of time via that will take you straight to the exhibition without stopping at the ticket office. All ArtCard holders can also go directly to the exhibition entrance. Tickets are of course also available at our box office.

Our library is also open again since 19 May 2020. Please follow these rules when visiting the library:

  • You are required to wear a mask during the entire stay in the library and the entire Bundeskunsthalle.
  • Before entering the library, please either wash your hands or disinfect them (a dispenser with disinfectant is available).
  • All visitors must register in a visitor book (the data will be destroyed after three weeks).

Due to changes in the COVID-19 infection rate, there is always the risk of an exhibition or event being canceled on short notice. Tickets for the exhibitions and events already purchased in advance can be returned to the advance booking offices where they were purchased.

Up-to-date information can be found here on our website and social media channels.

We wish you a pleasant stay.

All the best and stay healthy!
