From the Akademie der Künste to the Zitadelle Spandau (Spandau Citadel), well over 60 Berlin museums and institutions as well as memorial sites have been taking part in Museum Sunday since July 2021. There is no admission charge on this day. The museums are open to everyone to enable cultural participation and to increase curiosity about visiting the city’s numerous cultural offerings.

The current Corona situation requires that time slot tickets for the visit must be booked despite the free admission. The possibility to book will be activated one week before the next Museum Sunday. More information is available in the description of the individual events. The great success of the Museum Sundays is a disappointment, especially for those who decide at short notice: Anyone who spontaneously decides to visit the museum will find that almost all the time slot tickets are already fully booked. A visit to a museum on an admission-free Sunday should therefore be planned well (and above all in advance).
Museum Sundays will be held on these Sundays in 2022:

The 2G rule applies to participation in events: It will be checked on site whether you have been vaccinated or have recovered. For this, you need a digitally verifiable proof (QR code digital or printed) as well as a photo ID for comparison. A vaccination card is not sufficient. Persons under the age of 18 are exempt. They need a negative daily test (max. 24h). Children under 6 years of age are exempt from this rule. For pupils who are regularly tested in their schools, the pupil’s identity card is valid as proof. For persons who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, proof of vaccination eligibility by means of a medical certificate and a negative PCR test (max. 48h) is required. Furthermore, the urgent recommendation to wear a medical or FFP2 mask applies, in some houses this is further prescribed. If you would like to visit a house without booking an appointment, there may be waiting times.
