2G regulation from 16 years!

An official 2G certificate is required for a normal museum visit and for participation in a group offer (guided tour, workshop, etc.) or an event. “2G” means vaccinated or recovered. The proof is only valid in connection with an identification document (e.g. identity card)

Children and young people up to and including 15 years of age are exempt from restrictions on 2G. Schoolchildren are still considered to have been tested due to their participation in the mandatory school tests. This does not apply during the holidays, as a current corona test (not older than 24 hours) is required.

Adults who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons must show a medical certificate (no more than six weeks ago) and a daily rapid test (not older than 24 hours).

The mask requirement remains.


The only triangle castle in Germany in still closed construction.

Wewelsburg Castle was built between 1603 and 1609 in Weser Renaissance style as a supplementary residence for the Prince Bishops of Paderborn. The triangular castle, which is located in the village of Wewelsburg (Büren) in the district of Paderborn, stands high on a rock overlooking the Alme Valley.

Experience history at your fingertips, enjoy very different insights and insights, the gastronomy of the castle or a short break in the youth hostel. Whether you travel alone, as a family or group, as a hiker or by bike - discover the ever-changing variety of topics on the Wewelsburg.
