The Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig

is a research museum of the Leibniz Association

Museum visit under "Corona requirements”


Dear visitors,

a visit to our exhibitions is currently possible without prior appointment.

You can purchase your tickets at the box office.

No 3G proof (vaccinated/healed/tested) is required to visit the exhibition or to participate in guided tours.

Last admission is at 5:15 pm (Wednesdays 8:15 pm).

Information about events

The 3G rule (vaccinated / recovered / tested) applies at events. This means that proof of full vaccination or recovery is required.  Alternatively, persons may show a certified negative result of a rapid antigen test or PCR test carried out no more than 48 hours previously (in special cases, if the test may have been carried out no more than 6 hours previously, this will be indicated accordingly). School-age children and adolescents are considered to have been tested due to their participation in the mandatory school tests. All you have to do is show your student ID. Children up to school entry do not need a corona test.

You can find more information about the museum's educational offers here.

Please continue to observe the protective and hygienic measures currently in force at the museum.

We look forward to your visit!


Protective and hygienic measures

The Museum Koenig follows the requirements of the Corona Protection Ordinance of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (link is external).

Accordingly, the following applies to you:

  •  Obligation to wear a medical mask
  • Maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 m from other people

If you feel ill, please stay at home.

Use the facilities for hand disinfection.

Cough or sneeze (along with the mask) into the crook of your arm and keep your hands away from your face (eyes, nose, mouth).

Avoid forming groups that are too close together.

In order to further minimize visitor encounters, the exhibitions can currently only be seen as a tour.
