New corona measures for reading rooms update 26 November

Update 26 November: The new corona guidelines of the central government do not result in new measures or restrictions in our services. The following opening-hours apply.

All measures and conditions remain unchanged:

  • The 1.5 meters distance is being followed, which limits the capacity to 160 visitors. Reservations are not necessary, but you may have to wait a while if the reading room is full.
  • The opening-hours will remain the same
  • Wearing a face mask is mandatory throughout the KB, but you can take it off when you are sitting.
  • Showing a corona qr code is not necessary
  • For the time being, study places will also remain available without collection use
  • A workplace is guaranteed for collection use
