How do we react to the risk of infection from COVID-19?

In order to ensure the protection of our guests and employees, we have adapted our operation to the current situation:

  • From a 7-day infection incidence of over 35 in the county, the 3G principle applies in the Old Salt Works. For this reason, only vaccinated, recovered or currently tested persons have access to our Old Salt Works.
    Tested persons are equal to: children up to their sixth birthday; students who are subject to regular testing as part of school attendance; and children not yet enrolled in school.
  • The maximum permitted group size per guided tour depends on the (changing) legal requirements in Bavaria and the hygiene concept we have created and adapted on this basis.
  • A distance of 1.5 metres must be kept between visitors from outside the family.
  • All guests ages 6 and older wear a medical face mask in the visitor center and throughout the tour.
  • Disinfection stations in the entrance and exit area.
  • In order to trace possible chains of infection, contact details must be given at the ticket office when buying a ticket.
  • Please note that there are restrictions due to the current situation and an independent exploration of the Salt Museum is not possible after the guided tour through the tunnel system. 

The following persons will not be granted access:

  • Persons who have had contact with COVID-19 cases within the last 14 days.
  • Persons with symptoms typical of an infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus (fever, new cough, loss of sense of smell or taste or shortness of breath)
  • Visitors who have arrived directly from an area which, at the time of the visit, is categorised as at risk according to the information currently available for the designation of international at risk areas by the Foreign Office, Ministry of the Interior and Ministry for Health, must comply with respective legal requirements (testing, quarantine, if necessary, etc.).
