Dear visitors, we are pleased to announce that the Museum Ludwig reopened on May 5. Since is it our priority to protect you and our staff, we kindly ask you to stick to the following rules:
Please wear a mask covering your mouth and nose during your visit (you can also use a scarf, a neckerchief, a reusable cloth,...)
Please keep a distance of 1.5 - 2 metres to other visitors and museum attendants.
Please wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. Restrooms are available on every floor.
Please use your arm or a tissue when sneezing or coughing. Please dispose the tissue immediately.
Tickets can be purchased as usual at the ticket desk (cash and debit cards are accepted). It is not possible to purchase timed tickets.
Plexiglas panels help protect visitors and staff at the ticket desk, cloakroom, and information desk.
Markings and signs guide visitors through the museum and help maintain a safe distance. Please follow the museum attendants’ directions.
Our staff wear face masks and maintain a safe distance to others.
Currently the museum can accommodate 400 visitors at a time. Our museum attendants ensure that the capacity of the exhibition spaces is not exceeded so that visitors can maintain a safe distance of 1.5 to two meters.

The museum shop and cafe are open. Please follow the hygiene guidelines posted there.
Workshops for children and adults can be reserved. An overview of our offerings is available here.
