Within the framework of the current Corona regulations, the Artothek is also open again at the usual times.

However, you must still adhere to the applicable hygiene (mouth/nose protection, hand disinfection) and distance rules when visiting the Artothek.

Since we still do not allow too many people from different households to be on our premises at the same time, we still recommend that you make a specific appointment with us.
For further inquiries, we can be reached by e-mail and by telephone (answering machine) outside of our opening hours. We take care of this regularly, even during the Lower Saxony school vacations when the Artothek is closed.

Stay healthy!
Your Artothek Team
