The heritage
of mankind

The cultural heart
of the Ruhr Area

Dear visitors, 

presently the so-called 2G-rule applies for all activities on Zollverein. 2G stands for the German words “vaccinated” (geimpft) or “cured” (genesen) and means you can only access the museum, exhibitions, restaurants or our ice-rink if you have proof of full vaccination against or recovery of Covid-19. We will check your certificates at all entrances and also ask for proof of identification.

You can still visit the Zollverein-Park outdoors without proving 2G but visitors are responsible to adhere to current legislation in terms of distancing rules or maximum number of people (unvaccinated) in a group.

There are exceptions to the the 2G – rules for school children. Younger than 16 they only need to bring a student ID if they are being tested at their school regularly. Pregnant women or those who for medical reasons can not (yet) be vaccinated can enter with a test under certain circumstances. A rapid test facility is on the ground. Please reach out to our staff if you are uncertain.

We are very happy to open our ice rink on December 4th. To access the rink and the little winter village around with snacks visitors need to proof a vaccination or recovery, too. Right now we can offer events such as concerts in accordance with law. Please check our website regularly as the rules might change quickly.

Amazement allowed: a unique place for experiences

Every day, the diverse offerings on the 100-hectare grounds invite visitors to experience the world of coal, coke, art, and culture in the heart of the Ruhr Area.
