Online tickets are available in our ticket shop. The time slot listed on the ticket is binding; the ticket is not valid at a later time. It is no longer a requirement to book tickets online in advance. The ticket counter at our museum has reopened.
Access requirements for the museum, library and archives
We welcome visitors to the museum who can demonstrate negative, same-day test results, who are fully vaccinated or have recovered from a COVID-19 infection. However, mandatory testing is not currently required to visit the museum.
Access to the library, collections and archives continues only to be possible with a same-day, negative test result of a rapid antigen test or documentation showing complete vaccination or recovery.
Valid proof includes:
- Certification of a same-day, negative, EU-approved PoC (point-of-care) or PCR antigen test, carried out within 24 hours of the time of admission, or
- Proof of completed, full vaccination (15 days after the second injection) by presenting documentation of vaccination immunization (vaccination card), together with an identity card, passport or other official photo ID, or
- Following recovery, presentation of a positive PCR test for a past COVID-19 infection that was administered at least 28 days and no longer than six months ago; this documentation is to be shown together with an identity card, passport or other official photo ID.

Attendance records / Luca app
The Kinemathek has registered itself as a location in the Luca app system, making your visits even easier. With your approval, the Luca app stores digital data required for contact tracing and forwards it to the local Gesundheitsamt (public health department). The app can be downloaded free of charge (also at the museum). Contact forms continue to be available to visitors without smartphones, who can download the forms in advance, fill them out, and bring them with them.
FFP2 face masks
Wearing an FFP2 face mask is mandatory throughout the entire building. If it is not possible for you to comply with this obligatory requirement, please inform our staff at the ticket counter.
The mask requirement does not apply to the following groups of people:
- Children under the age of six
- Individuals who cannot wear a nose and mouth covering due to a physical impediment or disability
- Individuals required to use other medical equipment to reduce the spread of transmissible droplet particles
- Deaf and hearing-impaired individuals, as well as the persons who accompany and communicate with them.
Keep a safe distance
Please enter the building one at a time. People who live in the same household are an exception. Please maintain a safe distance of at least 1.5 meters (approximately 5 feet) from other people at all times and avoid any physical contact.
