Cathedral reopened for visitors

Naumburg and Merseburg Cathedral will be open to visitors again. In addition, the cathedral shops in Naumburg and Merseburg will be open again and visitors will be able to register at the foundation's archives and libraries. 

In the preparation for the opening, opening concepts for the Merseburg and Naumburg Cathedrals were developed and coordinated with the responsible health authorities, taking into account the requirements for containment of SARS-CoV-2 for the protection of employees and guests. Please note the following information:

Guests showing symptoms of disease that can be linked to SARS-CoV-2 are not allowed to enter the facilities, nor are visitors who have recently been abroad.

In the facilities there is a face mask recommendation for employees and guests. In both cathedrals the streams of visitors are directed in such a way that arriving visitors and those leaving the cathedral do not meet. There is a limited number of visitors who may be in the cathedrals at the same time, this is checked by the visitor service. The applicable distance regulations must be observed.

In order to trace chains of infection, visitor data must be recorded. To do this, visitors fill out a data collection form when purchasing a ticket. Visitors can also bring the form with them, already printed and filled out, to avoid waiting times. Here you can download the form.Please also note our data protection information on the recording of visitor data..

Opportunities for disinfection will be available in the checkout area and in the toilets. All surfaces and sanitary facilities will be disinfected and cleaned at regular intervals.

Furthermore, all educational offers of the KinderDomBauhütte and KinderDomusMerseburch must be cancelled until 31 August.

However, there will also be church services in Merseburg and Naumburg Cathedrals under certain conditions.
