All about a visit at the Mathematikum

To ensure your safety and the safety of our employees, the Mathematikum has made some adjustments for the time of the pandemic.


A visit at the Mathematikum is only possible if you're wearing a medical face mask. This also applies to children aged six and older.

Please disinfect your hands when you enter the building. Disinfection stations are available.


Please check the opening hours prior to your visit.

The total number of visitors is also limited. Like this, as many people as possible can enjoy the Mathematikum and still everybody can keep a safe distance. The easiest way to make sure you don't have to wait is to book your visit online in advance.


In normal times, you can move freely through all the Mathematikum. Right now, a route is mapped through the exhibition. One staircase leads up, the other down. You will of course have no difficulty in accessing all of the exhibits.

We removed some experiments because it is hard to comply with the hygiene precautions while using them (e.g. exhibits that you need get very close to with your face). This unfortunately also concerns some favorite experiments. To compensate for that, we re-activated attractive experiments from our collection. You can still enjoy almost 200 exhibits and also look forward to rarely shown, exciting exhibits from past special exhibitions.
