Group tours pose particular challenges in this regard. In order to ensure that visitors can maintain the appropriate distance within the various spaces of the museums, every single tour has to be carefully planned, taking into consideration the size of the rooms being visited and predetermining the exact timing of the various stages of the tour.
At the moment, we are not able to allow external tour guides to run independent tours in the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, since that would require a complex and detailed pre-approval process in order to ensure that these tours could also take place while maintaining all the necessary health and safety requirements. At the same time, we are doing our utmost to ensure access to our museums for groups in some form, and are currently working out the first tours of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin on a case-by-case basis.
The Staatliche Museen zu Berlin is so pleased to now be able to facilitate visits thanks to our comprehensive COVID health and safety plan. The regulations currently in force dictate that museums must enforce a detailed health and safety plan in order to remain open to the public.
Our plan is based primarily on the principles of maintaining distance, hygiene, and mask-wearing inside the museums. Alongside obligatory mask-wearing, pre-booked time-slot tickets and reduced visitor numbers are central components of this plan. These measures enable us to guarantee that sufficient distance can be maintained between visitors in all areas of our museums at all times.
This allows us to fulfil our mission and our duty to make the cultural treasures preserved by the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin accessible to the public. At the same time, we are able to protect the health of our visitors and contribute to mitigating the COVID-19 pandemic.
