Current information & open facilities

Some of our previous Corona protection measures remain in place: such as wearing a medical mouth-nose protection or an FFP2 respirator mask without an exhalation valve during your entire stay (exception: during meals). Furthermore, we recommend keeping a distance of 1.5 m. Payment can only be made with a Mensa card. Cash payment is not possible. Further information on the measures can be found further below.

All facilities are open again for on-site consumption and for the sale of take-out food and beverages.

Due to the current situation, occasional closures may occur. You can find more information about the latest opening hours and possible changes on the pages of each facility:
