Der Merseburger Dom öffnet wieder für Besucher

Merseburg Cathedral will reopen to visitors from 1 June 2021. The requirement for this is that the incidence of the Burgenlandkreis remains below 100. The cathedral shop will also reopen and visitors can visit the cathedral archives and the cathedral library. Here, however, a visit can only take place after prior registration and in a fixed time slot.


- Access is open to all, showing a negative test or proof of vaccination/health is not required to visit.
- There are a limited number of visitors allowed in the Cathedral at any one time, so advance registration is recommended, especially for groups. The purchase of a time slot ticket is possible via our Shop (fast access in the time window is then guaranteed).
In order to be able to trace infection chains, visitor data must be collected and stored. To facilitate data collection, the Luca-App is used.
- It is mandatory for employees and guests to wear a medical mouth guard in the facilities.
- The flow of visitors is directed in the cathedral in such a way that arriving visitors and those leaving the cathedral do not collide.
- The applicable spacing regulations must be observed.
- Possibility for disinfection will be available in the cashier area and in the toilets.
- All surfaces and sanitary facilities are cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis.
