Negative proof (Proof of booster or 2G Plus status)

Please note that, due to current official regulations, you can only visit the Städel Museum with negative proof. We kindly ask you to present your negative proof together with a photo ID.

A booster vaccination is considered to be:

  • the third vaccination or
  • the second vaccination after a first vaccination with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or
  • the second vaccination of a recovered person

For visitors carrying proof of triple vaccination (‘boostered’), there is no testing obligation.

Valid proof of 2G Plus status is considered to be:

  • persons with vaccination protection recorded in an official vaccination certificate: date of second vaccination plus 15 days + negative test or
  • recovered persons with an official medical certificate, at least 28 days and maximum 6 months old + negative test or
  • unvaccinated persons with an official medical attestation + negative test

A negative test is considered to be a negative antigen test (not older than 24 hours) or a negative PCR test (not older than 48 hours).

Entrance without booster and 2G proof is permitted for:

  • children under 7 not enrolled in school
  • school students with a current student test booklet or student ID card
Mouth- and Nose Protection

Visitors are required to wear a medical mask (FFP2- or surgical mask) over the mouth and nose. Please bring a mask or purchase one at the ticket desk upon entry.

Persons who have been fully vaccinated, recovered from corona, or tested negatively for corona are requested to wear a medical face mask and observe the general ‘AHA’ rules (distance, hygiene, masking) during their visit to the museum.
