The heritage
of mankind

The cultural heart
of the Ruhr Area

Dear visitors, 

all museums at the Zollverein UNESCO World Heritage have been closed since 2nd November 2020, to adhere to the COVID-19 prevention guidelines and protect staff and customers alike. Events and the guided tour program have been cancelled. The new version of the Corona Protection Ordinance of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia now allows a resumption of activities in some areas. After four months of lockdown, operations can be restarted partly. The new lockdown rules of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia allow museum services to be offered again in March. Zollverein guided tours will not take place for the time being.

In the first stage, the museums on the World Heritage Site will take up their operation. The Red Dot Design Museum on Shaft XII will welcome its guests as from Tuesday, 9th March 2021. And as from Saturday, 13th March 2021, the Ruhr Museum’s permanent exhibition, the special exhibition „100 Years of Ruhr Area. The Other Metropolis“ and the gallery exhibition „Childhood in the Ruhr Area“ will again be open daily from 10 am to 6 pm. Free quizzes for all three exhibitions are available for families with children. As from Sunday, 14th March 2021, also the Phänomania Experience Field will receive visitors again.
Medical face masks are mandatory inside all buildings.

Guided tours and events will however not take place. The Portal of Industrial Heritage will also remain closed for the time being, and it is currently not possible to visit the viewing platform on the roof of the Coal Washery.

As North Rhine-Westphalia’s incidence rate is higher than 50, the opening of the museums is only possible with limited numbers of tickets and reservations. For this purpose, visitors can book time slot tickets in the online shop of the Ruhr Museum or in the online ticket shop of the Red Dot Design Museum. And they must have their personal data documented before the visit.

All gastronomic businesses on the site will remain closed during the „lockdown“, the bistro on Shaft XII will offer to-go sales from a food truck on selected days. Limited shopping is again possible with pre-arranged appointments.

In the coming days, Zollverein Foundation will communicate, which of the events planned for the beginning of 2021 can take place under the given conditions or have to be cancelled. We will try to find an alternative date throughout the year.

The open spaces of the World Heritage Site as well as the Zollverein Park are accessible. Guests are asked to adhere to the present hygiene and distance rules.

Return and reimbursement of already procured tickets
If the tickets have been purchased via the common online portals or via the ticket shop of the Zollverein Foundation, the ticket provider ADticket will contact the clients and inform them about the further procedure of reimbursement. Should they have been bought from one of the ticket offices at an event of the Zollverein Foundation, you can contact us for a refunding by an e-mail to veranstaltung@zollverein.de. Further information about entrance cards, which have been acquired from an advance booking office, will be provided by the corresponding offices.

Zollverein guided tours
Already purchased tickets for guided tours can be exchanged into vouchers, or the costs can be reimbursed. The Zollverein visitor service will provide information about this under besucherdienst@zollverein.de.

Ruhr Museum
Visitors will get a voucher or a reimbursement for already booked online tickets, corresponding information under besucherdienst@ruhrmuseum.de.

Amazement allowed: a unique place for experiences
