Regulations in the exploratorium berlin in times of Corona


Dear guests of exploratorium,

for events and rentals at the exploratorium, very differentiated regulations have been in place since 4 June 2021 to prevent infection with Corona. These are divided as follows:

1. general regulations for all
2. concerts or other events with an audience
3. workshops, courses and other educational events
(except singing in groups and dance/movement)
4. singing in groups
5. dance/movement
6. diverging outdoor arrangements

1. General regulations for all

Minimum distance of 1.5 m between all persons (exception: families, couples and persons living in one household).
– Observance of hygiene rules (washing/disinfecting hands, coughing & sneezing etiquette)
– Correct wearing of a mask (usually FFP 2) for all visitors over 6 years of age during the entire event.
– Proof of a current negative Corona test:
     • either PCR test or rapid test not older than 24 hours
     • or self-test, which will be carried out under supervision on site.
   Exempt from compulsory testing are:
     • Children up to the age of 6
     • Vaccinated and recovered persons. In the case of vaccinated persons, the last required vaccination must have taken place at least 14 days ago; in the case of convalescents, the Sars-CoV-2 infection must have taken place at least 28 days and a maximum of 6 months ago. In both cases, appropriate proof must be presented.
Ventilation: The rooms must be ventilated at least every 45 minutes; even better: continuously.
Attendance documentation of all participants either digitally in advance or on the forms on display.
– Visitors who have had contact with a person suffering from SARS-CoV-2 in the last 14 days or who are suffering from an upper respiratory tract infection themselves are not allowed to enter the facility!
– Visitors with chronic respiratory diseases who cannot wear a medical mask put themselves and others at increased risk of infection. They are therefore advised not to visit.

2. Concerts or other events with an audience

– The regulations mentioned under 1. apply

3. Workshops, courses and other educational events
       (except singing in groups and dance/movement)

Maximum group sizes: 15 in hall 1 and 12 in hall 2 (= 1 person/10 sqm).

4. Singing in groups

– FFP-2 masks required until occupation of seats

5. Dance/movement (according to HRK for Dance Studios from 1.6.2021)

Maximum group size: 10 persons
– A ventilation protocol must be drawn up. (We recommend: continuous ventilation)

6. Diverging arrangements for outdoor activities

     a) for concerts (2.) and workshops (3.)

– Medical masks are sufficient and may be removed at the venue.
Tests are not required if a minimum distance of 1.5 m is maintained.
– The minimum distance may be reduced to 1 m if the masks are also worn in the square or if all visitors have tested negative or have been vaccinated or have recovered.

     b) Group singing and wind instruments

– Minimum distance 2 m, to the audience 4 m

We are pleased that we can be active again – despite restrictions – and ask you to observe the rules mentioned so as not to jeopardise this opportunity!
